    I seen the feedback forms more or less, but is there any just Guest book forms  Where a person can type in what they want to say and it will automatically get put on a guestbook page.  Or if nothing else they can submit a testomony it comes in e-mail then we can manually put it on a page?

    Making a Guest Book is possible with JotForm. 

    This can be made possible by inserting a Text element in your form, creating an HTML table or Grid Listing Report and then inserting that report onto the free text field.

    To create an html table or grid listing report:

    1.  Go to My Forms then click on the form that you want to create a report of
    2.  Click the Reports button then click Add New Report

    3.  Choose HTML table or Grid Listing then click Next
    4.  Check/uncheck the fields that you want to show/hide, click Next
    5.  Copy the iframe codes provided


    To insert the report's iframe codes onto your form:

    1.  Add a Free Text HTML field into your form. This can be found under the Power Tools option

    2.  Click the free text field, then click the HTML button in the toolbar

    3.  Paste the report's iframe codes into the HTML textarea
    4.  Save your form

    Wow seems like a lot of steps to go through just for a Guestbook. Since these are still kind of popular it seems like Jotform would have some of these already made up ahead of time.  In any case thank you for taking the time to explain how to go about it. Should I attempt this I will let you know how it turns out for sure.

    Thank you for your response, Larry.

    It may be too lengthy of a process but it's actually quite easy to create. Basically you just need two things, the form, and the submissions report of the form. Ideally I would prefer separating the report and the form itself and place both on just a single web page.

    Feel free to let us know if you need assistance on this matter.
