    Can I use your forms for student research?

    Asked by penworks on October 27, 2016 at 04:52 AM

    hi Jotform folks. Im a phd student in malta doing some research into learning in a smart city. I really like your form tools for GPS location widget, uploading multimedia choices and so on. Is this still a live (reliable) form/app/service I can use for my project? Sadly I am not funded so would be using free plan. But I will give you full credit for these very useful functions if I can rely on your service - Im only asking as the last thread on this convo is 2 years ago.

    Hello, and thank you for interesting in our services.

    You can use our Free plan for your research since Free plan will work exactly the same like paid plans except that there are some limitations in the number of submissions, views, number of forms etc.

    But, all applications and widgets will work normally.

    If you have further questions or need any assistance we'll be glad to help.

    Thank you!

    Wow that was a fast response! Super great. Ive already tested a form as a Wordpress embed and on mobile responsive - works very well. The GPS coordinates are really useful for feedback submissions as I can now visualise that data on a map. Also, the way you offer multimedia uploads is fantastic, very seamless. 

    Thanks! Really useful. I'll add your name to my credits and acknowledgements.
