Is there a mobile app that will allow users to fill up the form and submit only when there is an internet connection?

    Is there plans for an phone app can have the form opened within it (rather than going to a webpage), that can be filled in and have the data stored within it locally until a mobile data signal or wifi signal is seen by the phone/app then upload the data then.

     

    This would be very useful for people looking to capture data from a phone or tablet but have limited or no phone signal.

     

    we are looking to build an incident form for our staff but they wont always have phone signal to fill in the and send the form back straight away.

     

    Thanks

    Hello cotswoldsecurity,

    The closest means possible I could think of as a solution is to get the fillable PDF of the form. Although I'm not sure if this has the capacity to temporarily save the data that the person entered, but this will allow the user to submit the form when the time he has a signal or internet connection. 

    You can read on this user guide in order to download the fillable PDF version of your form: https://www.jotform.com/help/212-How-to-create-a-PDF-form 

    Feel free to let us know if you have questions or concerns.

    Thanks.
