    Can Jotform be used offline?

    Asked by Joe Shooner  on August 03, 2016 at 04:28 PM


    Here's my situation: I have a 4 day trade show 1x/year, and I am looking for a way we can have 2 ipads in the booth for simple data collection of prospects.

    The issue with some services for us is that the convention hall has no wifi and even cell coverage sucks.

    So what I'm looking for is an app that I can load onto ipads and can record the data locally.

    Does jotform work for that?

    Since JotForm is a web-based service and it is required to access the forms using the internet. However, you may create a fillable PDF form using JotForm so that you can save the PDF files with the data entered offline and submit them once you have the internet connection available. So, you'll need to duplicate the PDF files for different submissions. 

    Please see the guide below that can help you with more information on the Fillable PDF forms.


    Hope this information helps! If you have any other questions, please let us know. We will be happy to help.
