    very specific features for a client

    Asked by Jim Otto  on July 02, 2015 at 10:59 AM

    I have dentist client who has very specific requirements for their web form.  Tried several solutions, but nothing works the way he wants it.

    1) patient registration form, pretty long with lots of long text questions

    2) needs to be able to print form in clear, well laid out format

    3) can NOT have form data transferred via email

    4) wants an email confirmation that a form was filled out (but not form data sent via email - HIPAA issues)

    5) once notification received, log into account and print form results in good looking layout

    6) embed on SSL protected site (this is easy & I know you can do this)

    Can't use a PDF with fields as the information cannot be transferred via email.

     

    Will JotForm work for this client

    Hi,

    As far as I can tell from your list, our forms should be able to meet your clients needs. 

    1) patient registration form, pretty long with lots of long text questions

    This is not an issue.  The form can be extremely long and complex before you will see any sort of slow down.

    2) needs to be able to print form in clear, well laid out format

    You can include the headers and text of the form in the submission data while printing:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/305-How-to-show-headers-or-text-for-contracts-terms-agreements-in-the-PDF-format-of-a-submission

    However, depending on what your client deems "Clear and well laid out", this may be the only limitation.  Since they cannot use the edit link in their notification, the option to print the full form with the submission data in it will not be available to them:

    3) can NOT have form data transferred via email

    Just strip the data from the body of the email:

    While editing your notification, highlight and delete the field data.  You can replace the field data with whatever message you would like.

    4) wants an email confirmation that a form was filled out (but not form data sent via email - HIPAA issues)

    Same as above but here is a bit more data regarding JotForm and HIPAA compliance:

    5) once notification received, log into account and print form results in good looking layout

    Again, depending on what they deem a "Good looking layout" this may be the only issue.  The layout of the submission data is limited.

    6) embed on SSL protected site (this is easy & I know you can do this)

    Embedding the form to use SSL is indeed quite easy:
