    Just a few questions on how to use the forms

    Asked by Andrea Enney  on December 18, 2015 at 01:41 AM


    I work for a small babysitting business and we just had a few questions about access to forms. We want to essentially create a form for families to provide basic information and we want to provide a link for each babysitter to access a single families information form.

    1.  Will the sitters need to login to see the form?
    2.  What format is the form in once accessed?
    3.  Can we download the form and save in a different location?

    Thank you so much for your time and help!

    Thank you for your interest in using our form.

    Here are the answer to the questions you have:

    1.  Will the sitters need to login to see the form?

    To view the submission made by the family, you can log in to the account to where the form is saved, from there, you can check the submissions page of your form. You can also send a copy of the submission data via email, you can do this by setting up an email notification to your form. 

    2.  What format is the form in once accessed?

    The form can be accessed or open to any device as long as it has a web browser and an internet connection.

    3.  Can we download the form and save in a different location?

    You can convert your form as a fillable PDF and save it on a local storage or share it to other users. Here's a guide to learn more about the fillable PDF form: http://www.jotform.com/help/312-Fillable-PDF-Everything-you-need-to-know-about-JotForm-Fillable-PDF-Creator
