3. Export your data in any format,
4. Add form responses on your web site,

August 07, 2010Yes, that’s right, on a slow day, we release 10 new versions of JotForm. It may sound too brave (or stupid) to have so many releases for a service that has 300k users. Fortunately, today there are so many great tools which make this possible and even safe. The secret is having a system that runs hundreds of tests and deploys software on servers. All being done automatically in a matter of minutes.

When we were getting ready to release the new version of JotForm, we really wanted to hear from our beta users. We needed an easy way for them to let us know about the problems they encounter or suggestions they might have without leaving the form builder. So, we wanted to have one of those cool feedback buttons that show up on the side of the web sites. We searched for a solution, but existing products didn’t do what we wanted.Comments (49) Read the rest of this entry »
June 17, 2010Yesterday wasn’t an ordinary day for us the JotForm team. I woke up with a "JotForm Down!" SMS message. JotForm load balancer was gone. At first I thought this would be a load balancer hardware or software issue. It turned out that we were under attack by thousands of zombie computers in China. To our amazement it was a massive DDoS attack.Comments (17) Read the rest of this entry »
May 15, 2010We released the new version of JotForm recently. There has been mixed emotions among users. Some were not happy with the change. Their concern was totally understandable. Why mess with a product that’s already great? Why should they need to re-learn a tool they were so used to? Some users literally have hundreds of forms. They have invested great deal of time on this tool. A user who has over 400 forms asked me why change something that was already great. Why mess with something that is not broken? I think that’s an important question. I’d like to address this question in this post.
May 05, 2010One of the most popular features of JotForm is to be able to share form responses with others. Many JotFormmers use this feature to create online bookmarkable reports to share with their clients and colleagues.
Embarrassingly we failed to understand how popular these features were. We introduced a new reporting tool which was good for one specific type of reports. Boy, were we wrong big time. We were blasted with many angry emails which brought us back to our senses. Although this new reporting tool was good for some minority of users this was a huge step backwards for most users. Our users wanted to simply create an online Excel spreadsheet and send the link to their client or bookmark it on their boss' computer.
I am happy to announce that shareable reports are back in business. To create a new sharable report, select one of your forms on "My Forms" page and then click on "Reports", and choose "Add New Report".
