6 JotForm Features to Use for Back-to-School

From elementary schools to universities, people across departments who work in education use JotForm for their online form needs. Online forms collect permission slips, applications from prospective students seeking admission, and students trying to secure spots in study abroad programs. Information also needs to be streamlined and collected in administrative offices.
Students need an efficient way to register for next semester’s classes and extracurricular clubs and activities. Professors and other educators increasingly prefer to collect papers and assignments digitally, by sending out a form where students can upload and send their documents. Read on for 6 JotForm features to check out this back-to-school season.

1. Zapier

Although JotForm has dozens of integrations, Zapier is an especially powerful one: it connects your forms to basically every integration you will ever need or want. Teachers can use Zapier’s Google Drive integration to automatically send new inbound email attachments to your Google Drive. Or, use Zapier’s Gmail integration to save your student’s assignments to Google Drive automatically, by having your students label their assignments with a set subject line. You can even get text alerts when students submit their assignments so you know that your students are meeting the set deadline.

Whether you’re an educator or work in education administration, use Zapier to get reminders about important registration deadlines, assignments, and events with workflows like automatically adding new Google Calendar events to Todoist as tasks.

JotForm has dozens of “widgets,” or advanced form fields, that can add some extra flair to your forms. Click the link to see our top 5 picks for educators.

JotForm’s Form Designer allows you to customize the look and feel of your forms. Upload your own images as a background, choose fonts and color schemes, and truly make your form your own. Imagine a Study Abroad in Italy application form over a beautiful shot of the Colosseum, or a Lacrosse Club membership form with your college’s mascot as a header. Our Form Designer makes it easy.

JotForm’s Real-Time collaboration feature allows students to collaborate on aspects of a class project such as conducting market research by administering surveys, or school administrators to work together on creating the perfect forms. Collaborators can even work on the same form simultaneously.

A must-have for conducting research, conditional logic allows you configure your form to show or hide form fields, sections, or even the submit button based on previous user responses.

Form Analytics is a powerful way to know how your forms are performing. You can access data about your forms, including: how many people viewed your form, submitted a response, the conversion rate, and more. This knowledge can help you edit and adjust your forms so that you can drive a better response rate.
