    Asked by fasieh ahmed on March 18, 2015 at 10:11 AM
    We will be using this at an exhibition centre. The internet speed there is quite slow. Is it a good idea to use jotform? or can these be filled offline and later uploaded when online?

    JotForms are hosted online and you will need internet access to make them work. I would advise that you have a back up source for your internet. Although, we have a new feature that you could use.

    We are please to announce the Fillable PDF Form Creator. You can convert your forms into fillable PDF form and save them. Please refer to this link: http://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/.

    Here's an example:

    The fillable PDF below can be your main form template, let your users fill it out and save it, make sure to save it on a new file name so that you will not overwrite the original PDF. After that, when you have a more stable internet connection, you can open the filled out PDFs and click "Submit", that should sent the data to your JotForm account.


    I hope that helps.

    Thank you.
