    I plan to use an Android tablet to capture info (text, image, audio, GPS, etc.) into my form. Do your forms allow for offline data entry and storage, to be synced later to your cloud storage (and other third party storage, such as Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.)?


    Thanks much in advance.

    JotForm is a web application, in order for it run properly in terms of sending submissions to our servers, you should have an active connection to the web.

    You can create a fillable PDF form so that your users can fill it up and save the submission as a PDF Once the fillable PDF form is completed, it should be saved and not submitted.

    However, these submissions cannot be synced to your JotForm account. The reason is because the Import App can only import Excel or CSV files.

    Here's a related guide about the fillable PDF form. Hope this answered your questions. Thank you.
