    Mobile Responsive widget vs Responsive Form option

    Asked by LeonardDoctor on January 17, 2016 at 06:38 PM

    There is a simple checkbox to designate that a form is to be responsive.

    Also, there is a responsive widget.  Was that widget developed before jotform was responsive, or is the widget better?  if so, why?  thanks.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The forms are mobile friendly by default, even if the responsive form option is not checked. The Mobile Responsive widget was developed first and is very similar to the responsive form option. You may try both options to see which works better with your form layout.

    Also, if you notice any issues, you can report them back, so we will be able to take a look.
