    How does JotForm work? Does it create a plugin to go on a page, or does it create custom forms that have their own domains are accessed via link.

    Asked by RichlineSolutions on January 31, 2016 at 01:09 PM

    A client wants me to create several forms for them, but the platform I'm using for their website (websitebuilder.com) isn't very flexible, so it would be easier if I can create a jotform on it's own page and have the user access it via link. So I'm asking it the forms are created to be embedded in existed page or if they are meant to be on their own pages and accessed via link.

    It is possible to do both with Jotform. You can either embed the forms on the website itself using one of these embed methods: Which Form Embed Code Should I Use, or you can add a form link that will lead to a new page where the user can fill up the form.

    I don't see websitebuilder anywhere on your list. Which means I will
    probably have to iframe it. In that case, how does this work for mobile?
    My website has a mobile version. Are there mobile versions of the forms I
    create as well?

    Yes, you can use iFrame to embed the form in websitebuilder. Our forms are already optimized for mobile devices which means if the form is viewed on mobile, it will be in mobile view and if the form is viewed in the desktop, the form will be in desktop mode.
