Allow Me to Introduce Myself

July 07, 2015
Hello there! I’m Podo, a friendly cat with a knack for building purrrfect forms. It’s nice to finally meet you :)


You may be asking yourself: “Who is this cat, and what does this have to do with JotForm?” 

Well, consider me to be the new face of a team dedicated to making online forms easy. I’m here to help JotForm users discover answers to important questions, learn about innovative new features, and to celebrate special occasions with. All I ask for in return is the occasional head scratch and warm bowl of milk. 

Some fun facts about me: 

I’m a rescue from a shelter, where I previously learned how to build awesome forms using JotForm.
Jestem biegły w ponad 18 językach. (Polish for “I’m fluent in 18 different languages”)
There’s nothing in the world I enjoy more than helping JotForm users. And tuna. I LOVE tuna.
I’m dangerously cute. Obviously. 
I’m a big fan of Twitter (like all cats). Hashtag #askpodo if you have any fun questions for me! 
I am designed by the JotForm Design Team, you can read the back story here

So don’t be alarmed when you see me around. I’ll be hanging out on various pages, social media posts, newsletters, blog posts, and even a video every now and again. And if you’re allergic, don’t worry, I’m only on the computer! Feel free to say hi whenever you see me. 


Are you a cat(ish) person? On a level of 1 to 10, how adorable do you find me? Let me know in the comments!

ravtv (July 08, 2015 at 11:22 AM)

9.
it's hard to make flat designed thing cute. you guys did it very well.
but: that's a little bit weird and unserious. i would expect such things on facebook or anything, but not on an professional form designer. it's too childish.
and also: little animated helpers got that negative "clippy" touch. you know? clippy from microsoft office. the annoying little helper.


   
Redlich (July 08, 2015 at 12:03 PM)

Very good platform

What i love most is the ability to integrate widgets(lots of widgets) to build a desired form

Kudos to the JotForm team

Hello Podo. Does your name have a meaning? You're a little funny looking but I kinda like it. Jotform is the greatest. I love it. I'm just starting to really use it for pre and post-test assessments. I'm finding more and more things to use it. I'll give your looks a 8. I haven't had to use for anything. I give Jotform a 10!
