    Online / Offline Forms

    Asked by Neil Robinson  on September 15, 2016 at 10:18 AM

    I have a client who needs to be able to access forms, fill them in (perhaps offline) via stylus / handwriting recognition, and then for the system to save the form in the right location on a Dropbox target.


    Open to suggestion re: iPad / Surface Pro 4 or similar.


    Perhaps around 6 users.  Legal firm.

    Hi Neil,

    With JotForm, it requires an internet connection to create or fill the form.

    If you want to take your form offline so you users can fill them without internet connection (and submit it on a later date when an internet connection is active), simply convert your form into fillable PDF form. Check this page for more details https://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/

    It is also possible to integrate your form with Dropbox http://www.jotform.com/help/77-Upload-to-Dropbox-with-JotForm

    If you have further questions, do let us know.
