Introducing Form Widgets: Make Your Forms Better with 250+ Widgets

December 03, 2013
Today, we are releasing JotForm Form Widgets. What is a form widget? It is basically a field you can add to your form. It could be a youtube video or a drawing board. Widgets let you create better forms with less effort.

Form Widgets

What makes this announcement so exciting is that we are releasing Form Widgets with 280 ready-to-use fields. We have spent hundreds of man-hours to find and implement the most useful widgets you might ever need.

As always, we've done the hard work so that you don't have to.

This looks fantastic. That's what you've been doing then.
I will test loads of these tonight.
Thanks for the great surprise.
Regards Mark (your nemesis ;-)

I'd love to see the widgets, but once again Jotform has become too slow to be usable.

I may need a refund of my subscription if you cannot sort this problem out. If I'm having issues then I expect my customers will also have problems and will give up without completing their order.

I am now spending more time using the widget fields than the regular fields!

Great additions!

I create newsletters every month using Mailchimp. My clients send a form through Jotforms and I copy and paste to a Mailchimp template and other information I receive from a CVS file and copy and paste as well. Is there a way to have all this happening automatically with a widget?

why do not you provide a menu of Indonesian?
Did you know, Indonesia is a potential market for your product?

Nokia has to gain a big advantage here, as well as blackberries have earned very much money here, why you do not see the big market share. Here there are 400 million people.

Indonesian menu to back come on and I would like to become a distributor for you.
I provide a single office space complete with all the trimmings for you
This is my phone number if you want to contact me +62818220650
