    Can they be filled in offline?

    Hi - I am needing to find out if forms can be completed offline (on a tablet for e.g.) - we are looking at embedding jotform in some survey work in remote areas where there is no internet connectivity..

    Please advise?

    Only way to achieve this is by converting your online form to Fillable PDF form. More about Fillable PDF forms you can find inside of this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/312-Fillable-PDF-Everything-you-need-to-know-about-JotForm-Fillable-PDF-Creator 

    Fillable PDF forms can be filled offline. However you will need internet connection when the form needs to be submitted. So by creating Fillable PDF form you will be able to fill it and save the data (offline) and then submit it when you have internet connection (online). 

    Hope this will help. let us know if you need further assistance.
