Share Your Form Responses with Others

One of the most popular features of Jotform is to be able to share form responses with others. Many JotFormers 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”. You will get a screen like this:

Now, to create an Excel Report choose “Excel Report” option and then select spreadsheet columns on the next screen:

Finally, you will be provided with a URL for the report. You can copy and send this URL to others:

Now that we know how much you love these features we will keep making them better. If you have any suggestions please feel free to post them below on the comments!
