Celebrating 5,000 Form Templates

February 25, 2014
I am excited about the growth we have been seeing with Form Templates. It has turned out to be the greatest addition we've made to JotForm. We released it almost two years ago and the usage numbers are staggering. 

People have shared 5,000 forms on Form Templates. And, those templates were used 640,000 times to create new forms. We did some experiments comparing the amount of time it takes to create forms from scratch versus using templates. Creating forms using form templates saves about 10 minutes for each form. So, according to our estimates, Form Templates have saved our users over 100,000 hours

But, the secret to Form Template's success is not in the numbers. It is in the quality and diversity of the shared forms. You just need to take 5 minutes to browse the template gallery to see what I mean.

Our mission has always been to make form building quick and easy for everybody. Creating a form is not limited to adding a list of questions to a page. To create a good web form you need to think about various things. How should you word your forms? What questions should you ask? What questions should you NOT ask? Should you optimize your forms in length and clarity so that more people will complete them? 

Form Templates help you come up with ideas about what to include and what not to include in your forms. When I need to create a survey, the first thing I do is to review surveys in Form Templates. I get lots of ideas this way. If I see something good I take a note of it to use it in my form.

We have added multi-language support to form templates last summer. The adoption is growing and we already have forms in 38 languages.

The success of Form Templates is a great example to the power of sharing. I'd like to take this opportunity to send a warm thank you to all the people who shared their hard work with others. We really appreciate it. Keep on sharing!

As paypal carts don't really work to well with e-commerce websites Jotform is there to sort it out. Price package that Jotform offers for payments is a very low cost effective way of getting your website working for you. Thank you JotForm.

Oh... and if you don't take my word for it check our site to see how easy it really is.

Congratulations - I can only hope that you continue to develop Jotforms and please put priority on Functions and Reliability. Design is nice but comes 3rd in the list. I have been able to do almost all I need (with some workarounds)and now rely on Jotform a lot.

Great job Jotform!! It's a great product. Very helpful for small business owners such as myself. Here's to even more success for your company. You guys ever thought about a one time fee version? just an idea. :)


   
Dominic (March 01, 2014 at 02:23 AM)

I recall when it first started - and I first joined. improved version and smoother functions. This is definitely one of the better decisions I made!

I LOVE templates more than Ice cream! And being late is just the way it is. I just found my Jotform account today and I signed up last January.

We have too much of everything except templates!
