    Need to embed form to a mobile application

    Asked by zarathustra on August 15, 2016 at 01:48 PM

    I need to make a mobile app.  

     

    1st, do you have mobile app hosting etc or do we link to your templated from within our app?

    2nd, I want to be able to choose from a drop drown a person, in this case a technician, to set an appointment.  When the appointment is made I want the person to be notified via sms or email.

    3rd, I want to capture all this on an admin back end.

    I will run down your questions in order:

     

    1st, do you have mobile app hosting etc or do we link to your templated from within our app?

    You would create your form in JotForm then embed that form to your app.  Most likely using an iFrame depending on the app.
