    Last week I sent to support@jotfotm.com several empty forms for assistance. The form is with URL http://form.jotformeu.com/form/43075657362358. Could you please give any ideas how to avoid receiving of empty ones as most of the field are required.


    By the way at about 4 forms are counted as received, but in fact there is no info inside.


    Thank you!

    The form fields are required so it's impossible for someone to submit the form without filling up the required fields. If you have embedded the forms, there's a possibility that the form is not loaded properly in the page causing all the validations to stop from working. In this case, we would recommend re-embedding your form using our iframe method: http://www.jotform.com/help/148-Getting-the-Form-iFrame-Code.

    Thank you and I hope that helps!

    Using iframe the things seems to be working.

    Actually I am not sure which one of all methods to use for embedding. I was a bit disappointed for the several empty forms which I received...

    I have the same problem, same situation, problem were escalated to superior level. After that nothing...

    As I search in the forum, many people have thi same problem.

    This is not a free service, people pay for having their own business with it. It is not possible that you dont give a solution after more then a year and half. Empty fields is a serious problem, is the data from customers, are you a seriuos company? Stop developing or solving other secondary problem, back to a previous version, data field is the core of your businness
