    i want a feedback page where people are chatting and leaving comments for one another and then replying back at a later time even if the person is not around, so that way they can chat back and forth between one another and help each other with what they have learned, shared, their own personal experience, and give advice, feedback, susggestions, reply w/ their own story etc, so that way there's a communication page i have where people r helping ea other on that specific page that i build? can u assist me cuz it needs to be on a page that i create even though i am not finished w/ the page. thanks but will go head n leave a link to what pg i do have published. thanks so  much!

    JotForm is an online form builder service, which helps you build forms easily. It is not the best solution if you are looking for a chatting functionality.

    However, you can implement a kind of rudimentary chatting system by using our tools, though it will not be like an actual chatting platform. What you can do is to (1) have a feedback / messaging form that your users will be submitting.

    (2) In order for other users to see what users before them have submitted, you can also create a grid report of all your form's submissions, and then embed it onto your site above the messaging form:

    This will allow all users to see all the messages other people have submitted through the form.

    If you are looking to have an actual chatting system, with direct or private messages, you may need to use a chatting service instead of our forms. I've found the following recommendations for creating a chatting system on your website:

    I hope this helps with creating the chatting system for your visitors / users.
