    We had a temporary server issue that affected EU users.  This should now be fully fixed and form should no longer be giving this error.  If they continue to do so, let us know and we will be happy to have another look.

    HI David, Thanks for your reply.  

    During the outage received 16 submissions that are blank. Can you have a look?

    I am not sure if they can be recovered.  I will forward this to our developers to see if the submission data is recoverable.  We will let you know via this thread as soon as we have further information.

    Hi David, Sorry to bother you again. Is the information recoverable? 

    The form submissions that are missing would have taken hours to complete and the deadline for submission has passed. If the information is gone then it means that small community groups will miss out on £20 000 in funding each.

    This issue has already assigned to one of our developers under urgent priority. 

    I think we need to wait his answer for a wile.  However, I can ensure you that we will do our best to recover your data if it is possible. 

    If you have more questions or need any further assistance by our side, please feel free to contact us.

    Hi Guys, Do you have an update? The deadline has passed and the funding has been lost for the applicants. 

    I have lost faith in Jotform. Is it possible to have the account moved back to the more reliable US servers?

    What is the standard response time when an issue is urgent priority?

    Our developers are working to recover the data. I will check the progress with our Developers, and will send you further updates very soon.

    Thanks for your patience.
