    Am I able to use Jotform completely Offline?

    Asked by David Gilbert  on March 23, 2015 at 09:24 AM

    My question is whether or not I can use JotForm completely off line because of the sensitive nature of my forms.  I need the service to either be completely off line (package that is used directly on my machine and not web hosted) or I need to be able to buy a package that is able to be hosted by my own server.  Can I do this with JotForm?

    I need JotForm to replace Adobe forms Central (which as you are no doubt aware ceases soon), which I can use as a stand alone product on my Mac.  I need Jotform to provide the same service.  Please can you advise on the options that I have with your package as soon as possible as I am very keen to get this sorted.  I have multiple Macs to be upgraded to your product if it proves to be the right platform


    Many thanks

    Hi David,

    First of all, thank you for your interest in JotForm, I see that you are a Adobe FormsCentral user. I would like to present the following as to what we can offer.

    You can check this page comparison between Adobe FormsCentral and JotForm to learn more about our product: https://www.jotform.com/adobe-formscentral-alternative/#feat-comp.

    You can import your forms from Adobe FormsCentral to JotForm, no need to recreate them. You can import using this page tool: https://www.jotform.com/adobe-formscentral-alternative/. We also have an update to it, you can import by three options now, you can import the following:

    1. Import Forms + Responses

    2. Import Forms only.

    3. Import PDF forms


    If you would like to convert your forms into Fillable PDF, you can learn more about it here: https://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/

    Another thing that I can think of that matches your needs is purchasing the JotForm Basic App, what we have here is the online forms hosted in our end. But if you would like to host your form in your own server and network, you can do that by licensing the form builder itself, you can learn more about it here: http://www.interlogy.com/products/jotform/.

    I hope that helps. If you need more information do let us know.

    Kind regards.
