    How can I create more beautiful forms?

    Asked by BeholdMe_ on November 25, 2016 at 01:14 AM

    I saw a related post from 2015, however since my question is slightly different, I decided to create a new thread.

    I love Jotform's features, however, typeform's style (form design visuals) are pretty impressive. I would love to be able to have that in Jotform. I believe that this may be achievable through CSS, but sadly, I am no developer. Sigh.

    Do you think Jotform could consider these inclusions? Or provide a CSS script for styling similar to these typeform features?

    1. Seeing one question at a time (may be I can use page breaks for this).

    2. Each section expanding as we type, with a message box below (flash style looks).

    3. Spinning wheel in-between the transitions.

    4.Other things I may have missed.


    Also, I love typeform's feature of including into a question from a user-provided response to a different question. Is this feature available at Jotform?

    Thanks for your consideration and help.

    First of all, thank you for your good comments for JotForm.

    You can ask any of your questions to us whenever you need our support. We are ready to help you when you create your form, need any custom CSS, embed your form to somewhere etc. Please don't hesitate to contact us.

    In addition, our User Guides will be helpful for you when creating your forms.

    On the other hand, our Form Builder has the most advanced features and it is developing day to day. There is no limit to create more impressive forms in JotForm. Please have a look at this document to see differences between JotForm and TypeForm: Why-JotForm-is-the-Best-Typeform-Alternative-Integrations-Design-and-Value

    Let me clarify your questions one by one.

    1. Seeing one question at a time (may be I can use page breaks for this).

    Using page break is the most effective solution of this issue as you mentioned.

    2. Each section expanding as we type, with a message box below (flash style looks).

    Unfortunately, I couldn't understand this issue. If you are asking JotForm is responsive or not, our forms are responsive on all platforms. Id it is not your issue, please clarify your issue more detailed.

    3. Spinning wheel in-between the transitions.

    If I understood you correctly, you are asking "Form is loading" animation for each transition between your pages. In JotForm, there is no such a feature because your form is load at once. In other words, your form doesn't load piece by piece.  Therefore, you don't need to use an animation between pages.

    4.Other things I may have missed.

    If you provide more details about your form style that you expect, we can help and modify your form according to your requests.

    Finally, please have a look at our Theme Store: https://www.jotform.com/theme-store/ 

    I have prepared a demo form for your: https://form.jotform.com/63291428330957

    Please have a look at this form. I used a theme and made some changes on it.

    You can find many different form styles in our theme store according to your needs.

    If you need any further assistance, please feel free to let us know.

    Thank you.
