At my company we use different approaches to understand what our most important priorities are. We constantly ask ourselves, “What will create the greatest impact?” Ask yourself, “What’s the work I’m most avoiding?” Unfortunately, this is often an indication that it’s the most impactful.
Research has found that knowledge workers spend an average of 41% on unnecessary tasks. You are not the problem: Busy work is.
At my company, I’ve found it’s especially vital to create ways to make everyone feel valued and included. We have special Demo Days each Friday, where teams can show the projects and progress they’ve been making. This gives us the chance to not only celebrate team wins, but to also improve solidarity.
Every newly minted entrepreneur can attest to experiencing the same: In the beginning, things feel especially insurmountable. Here are a few steps you can take to start simplifying.

Jotform, which automates the process of making web forms, first sprang into action when the aftershocks subsided. “We have three offices in Turkey: Ankara, Izmir, and Istanbul,” says Burak Cifikli, chief operating officer of Jotform. The closest office that Jotform had to the epicenter of the quake was in Ankara, some 430 miles away, but the scale of the disruption was such that even they were affected.
At my company, everyone works in small, cross-functional teams, which can also deepen relationships. For example, a product team might include a designer, developer, UX pro, and a content strategist. These combinations strengthen connections among individuals and different business units.

At Jotform, we have employees who started on a product team, for example, before shifting into data analysis or customer growth. Top-notch employees love to learn, and many get bored without a steady stream of creative challenges.
Take manual data entry, for instance. Many companies rely on team members to enter purchase-order information. This practice can be cumbersome and time-consuming, and it can lead to mistakes due to human error, like inaccurate or incomplete data.
At my company, we hold vision meetings in which we discuss reaching goals and engage in team-building exercises — while keeping the agenda on track so that time isn't wasted. As a result, planning for us hasn't become a dreary and pointless endeavor.

Steve shares an insider's view of a hyper-growth environment and learnings from managing hyper-growth teams.
Employee data is critical for making better business decisions, improving productivity, and reducing turnover. Yet obtaining and storing data can get messy if it’s collected using a traditional method like a paper survey. One way to make the data collection process less challenging is to adopt contactless methods.
Johannes Wiklund, Head of Information Security for Jotform, a provider of a software-as-a-service (SaaS) application for building forms, explains what challenges fellow cybersecurity professionals should expect to encounter in 2023.
Jotform used data from HHS and IBM to track the financial impact of cyberattacks on the healthcare industry.
Luckily, employee surveys are an excellent tool for gathering the data you need to make informed decisions.
One of the skills I value most in myself — and why I believe I've been successful at growing Jotform over the last 16 years — is my ability to engage with those around me. People love to talk about themselves. Listen attentively and ask questions, and in this way, you can start to build a rapport.
Being an entrepreneur is inherently risky. But the usual risks have magnified in recent years given the uncertainty of the economy in the wake of Covid, the new challenges of managing remote or hybrid teams, and even unrest and conflict abroad.

Perhaps the biggest challenge of all is ensuring that any survey regarding healthcare is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA. It’s imperative to follow all HIPAA regulations and expectations when collecting, storing, and using survey data. Another challenge is ensuring that the data collected is accurate. Survey participants may be reluctant to be forthright, especially if the survey isn’t anonymous.
Organizations of all sizes will be looking to cut budgets in 2023 as the world faces an economic downturn. In response to this, we will actually see increased investments in no code / low code technology as leaders look for ways to increase productivity while maintaining leaner budgets.

This past summer, my company, Jotform, opened its sixth office worldwide in Istanbul, Turkey. We’ve grown from a small group of dedicated individuals back in 2006, to a thriving team of hundreds today. The glue holding us all together has been automation.
I've been CEO of my company, Jotform, for more than 16 years now, and I've seen the above scenario play out more times than I'd like to count. And what I've discovered is the same as what Harvard Business Review contributor Helen Lee Bouygues points out when she writes that the root cause of these organizational failures comes down to a lack of critical thinking.
As CEO of my company, Jotform, there were no easy answers to give, but I knew that it was up to me to remain a steady harbor for my team. We'd have to work together to develop new coping mechanisms. And it was also up to me to figure out a variety of decisions. This meant that I needed to leave my comfort zone and come up with an entirely new way of leading.
I'll be the first to recognize that I was particularly hard on myself when I first founded my company, Jotform. But what I didn't want to do was have this mindset infiltrate the culture I was trying to build. And this became a huge turning point in how I coped with the pressure to overwork.
As CEO of Jotform, a company with six offices in four countries, I can relate to the added stress of managing people across digital channels—not to mention various time zones.
At Jotform, it's been important for me to foster a culture that promotes a "middle path." This means holistically incorporating both our mental and physical well-being — a path where you don't have to choose between your work, home or social life.
Automation’s Silent Revolution Becomes Loud and Mainstream: Automation has been a “silent revolution,” with companies slowly increasing adoption over time. Amidst the global economic downturn, adoption of automation will be fast tracked as companies look to cut costs while boosting productivity and collaboration. In 2023, automation will burst on to the scene as a key solution for businesses to scale and expand without breaking the bank. – Aytekin Tank, CEO, Jotform

When I first founded my startup, Jotform, 16 years ago — I was over-eager and ambitious. I was also a self-proclaimed perfectionist and this didn't help with attempting to keep my impulses in check. But over time, as the pressure of growing my business became more intense, I made one of the best decisions for myself and my professional career: beginning a regular practice of mindfulness.Read More - How To Be Less Impulsive / Index: 64November, 2022

It's not easy to rewire the way we regard ourselves. I've been CEO of Jotform for years, and for the majority of that time, I've approached my goals with an "all or nothing" mindset. But recently, I've been working on trying to be more accepting.

Entrepreneurship is a balancing act, and one of the questions that comes up again and again is which is more important: Creativity or hard work? Frustrating as it may be to hear, the answer is both.

You can choose to organize information into different views, with different filters, with graphs and formulae, all while collaborating with others. Where Jotform is different is how it lets you integrate with the rest of the Jotform ecosystem.
I was initially accepting people’s submissions through Instagram and would have them send me screenshots of their relevant conversations.

Something I’ve learned while growing my company over the last 15 years is that feedback isn’t effective when it inflates — or bruises — someone’s ego. Just as my supervisor went through a list of all my shortcomings all those years ago, the culture I’m striving to create with my business is the exact opposite of this.
As CEO of my company Jotform, the past couple of years have been exceptionally challenging. But during these difficult times, I believe that positive thinking is more critical than ever.

Determining how to track productivity can be difficult. There are a few critical flaws in the time-tracking approach. One of the biggest is a fundamental misunderstanding of productivity. Plenty of people equate productivity with efficiency, but they’re not the same thing. Productivity is output quantified, such as the number of widgets sold per week; efficiency involves streamlining systems and processes.
Hiring developers is not cheap. They are some of the highest-paid employees at your company, so you should save them for the big stuff. Plus, if you use a free no-code app builder, such as Jotform Apps, you won’t have to pay a dime for the apps your department needs.
Being a transparent leader means being open and honest with your team. It means keeping employees informed and welcoming their feedback. Your ability to listen during stressful moments and reflect on what’s been said will go a long way toward cultivating trust.

Instead of signing up students in person and handling payments for events and merchandise manually, administrators are using digital forms. Schools can brand the forms for a professional look and feel, and once administrators create a custom template, they can reuse it for other purposes.
With an approval workflow, there shouldn’t be any questions about who is responsible for giving approval, when to expect a decision and what the next steps are in the process. It’s all about creating order in a sequence of actions that could easily become disorderly without a framework.
At my company, Jotform, I’ve witnessed countless instances of my team taking this principle to heart. They’ve been thoughtful of each other during meetings, have reached out to one another during a particularly challenging week, and noted colleague’s strengths during our Demo Days.Read More - Entrepreneur / Index: 272July, 2021

With Jotform’s free Student Survey Program, students worldwide can simply and effectively conduct research without any financial investment. Use cases include doing market research, collecting demographic information, getting group project feedback, checking in on student stress levels and more.
The rest of the time, though, I felt like I’d been thrown in the deep end without a flotation device. I was doing marketing, operations, finances and even some ad hoc design work, none of which I’d ever done before but was now my responsibility. Even though Jotform has grown into a bona fide tech company, at the beginning, it was just me on a laptop trying to figure stuff out.Read More - Entrepreneur / Index: 277June, 2021
It’s crucial for managers and mid-level leaders to create an environment of openness and honesty. For example, at my technology company, we make it a point to let employees know from the start what’s expected of them, in terms of both formal and informal communication. Setting these ground rules in advance helps equalize the playing field — whether we’re sharing physical space or not.
These are low-risk tasks with an equally low payoff, but that doesn’t mean they’re useless. For example, when a developer joins our company and starts Jotform bootcamp, we ask them to tackle minor software bugs. New hires need to get up to speed before making critical product changes, so these low-pressure, low-stress tasks can be a great way to learn.Read More - Entrepreneur / Index: 279June, 2021
Jotform gets the top spot for the minimalist bride and groom who want a solid all-in-one solution. First, it’s a great way to capture RSVPs, dinner choices, addresses, and even song requests. Just choose from one of the 120+ wedding-related templates, either for collecting info yourself or to share with your vendors or wedding planner.
When I first launched Jotform, I was responsible for every aspect of my company, from engineering to marketing. It was a humbling learning experience, and it helped inform what I was looking for when it came time to hire a team and delegate the tasks that frankly, I didn’t excel at.Read More - Entrepreneur / Index: 281June, 2021
When it comes to mid-level hires, what I’d like to highlight is the importance of hiring along with your values. Since growing my company from a solo venture into a firm with millions of users worldwide, I’ve learned a lot about the hiring process. Regardless of experience, what takes priority is to always choose positive, collaborative people.
Jotform is a user-friendly and convenient tool that turns form responses, invoices, and contracts to professional and secure PDF documents. By using it, users can share their documents without being concerned about manually turning them to PDF.
It took five years for me to quit my job and pursue Jotform full-time, but in the meantime, I strengthened both my skills, and my belief that I could found a successful business. Believing in yourself and assuming success will follow is not the right approach. Instead, believe in yourself because you’ve proven over time what you’re capable of.Read More - Entrepreneur / Index: 284June, 2021
Jotform, at its core, is an online form builder, but we’ve come to see it as something more. The entire tool is no-code, meaning you don’t know anything about coding to utilize the tool fully. It allows users to create, share, and manage forms and anything that comes with the process. We found it extremely easy to use. It basically took around 5 minutes to get an online form up and running.Read More - Jotform Review / Index: 285June, 2021
Research shows that everyone has different peak hours; defined as the period of time each day when you’re at your sharpest mentally. Finding your own peak time can take some trial and error. Learning about mine has helped me tackle the most important strategic work during my best hours, which has been instrumental in helping me run my business.Read More - Entrepreneur / Index: 286June, 2021
Dubbed the low-code or no-code movement, the effort includes startups like Zapier, which helps companies connect applications into a single automated process, to Jotform, which helps companies create surveys to collect data from customers. The products rely on simple software building blocks that can be dragged and dropped into place by untrained workers to build complicated applications.
The Bear River Health Department, which serves Box Elder, Cache and Rich counties, test-drove the system in-house and decided against transitioning from the Jotform program it already had in place. "In the end, we wanted to keep it very simple for the public and create less barriers to get their vaccines,” Director Jordan Mathis said, noting that Jotform was “super easy for the public on the front end.”
Countless survey tools make it easy to build and administer a survey. Look for tools that allow you to customize the look of the survey with your brand’s colors and logos. You should also be able to customize the different fields within the survey: multiple-choice, drop-down, short answer, star-rating, etc. Back-end features that help you analyze and report on survey data are helpful, too.
Use Jotform Approvals to manage the entire approval process, from accepting requests to managing and approving them. You can set up automated notifications for parents registering their children as well as reminders for those who need to approve the registrations.
Over the course of running my company, my team prioritized sane, steady growth and avoided set teeth-gnashing deadlines. I’ve always tried to unplug during evenings and weekends, and our leadership encourages our 300 employees to do the same.
I give my employees at Jotform plenty of space to grow their most important ideas. We don’t have deadlines because I want ideas to flourish freely, and worrying about a looming deadline doesn’t do much to inspire creativity.
Once someone completes the approval form, the submission triggers the approval workflow you created. Jotform Approvals makes it easy to track and manage the process, and the automated tasks prevent staff from spending time sorting requests, following up on missing information, and so on.
A no-code tool can set up a review process that collects feedback from multiple managers and coworkers to get a full picture of an employee’s performance. You can create a process that requires multiple people to weigh in and compare self- and manager evaluations side by side.
By having a QR code at your booth, you can give visitors an easy way to sign up for your offer — which is highly valuable and provides a great user experience — while also capturing their email address and contact information, depending on the fields you use in your form.
When we were working on our latest product, Jotform Tables, it was important for me to convey from the start that I wanted our focus to remain on quality versus speed. We ended up spending three years developing this tool with that vision in mind. Why? Because, rather than adopting a “just ship it” mentality, my end goal since the beginning was to create an enduring company that delivers real value to our customers.
One way to better understand guests’ concerns and cleaning preferences — while sending a subtle message that you’ve got this covered — is to survey customers online. You don’t have to create a survey from scratch; there are free and low-cost form options that make putting an online survey together quick and painless, even without technical expertise.
Ever since I founded Jotform, I’ve tried to prioritize a team focus. One reason is practical: I can’t do it all alone. The other reason is more strategic – I’m a firm believer that at the end of the day, a business isn’t its product or its leader. It’s a culmination of its people.
Approvals allows users to drag-and-drop elements in order for teams to more efficiently add emails, approvers, and perform other tasks. Additional features of the new Approvals tool include personalized emails that match approval flows, customized approval settings, over 100 templates for several industries, and more.
Jotform has over 10,000 form templates which give you a large selection to choose from. The categories with the most options are registration forms, request forms and application forms. All of these types of forms can be multi-page forms and are mobile-friendly.
Jotform, a leading online form software provider, announced Approvals, a no-code tool designed to empower teams to automate approval processes and streamline workflows with ease.
The first step in maintaining company culture is creating a solid foundation. For example, at my company, Jotform, it’s been one of my missions to dismantle the “always-on” mindset so inherent in the tech world.
Approvals comes at a time when most of the world’s workforce needs simple, affordable tools that save time and allow them to work from anywhere. With the Approvals drag-and-drop interface, teams can easily add approvers, emails, conditional branches and other elements to an approval process.
Jotform Approvals has a drag-and-drop interface so educators can customize any type of form that requires their approval. You can add customizations to the form approval process.

Jotform Approvals is a quick, customizable way to automate the rote responses in a form. It enables you to specify what actions follow once a form is received like alerting involved parties, forwarding the form when required, and notifying respondees of results.Read More - Jotform Approvals / Index: 305April, 2021

Hand-writing has several useful benefits. For one, research suggests that the act of putting pen to paper helps you retain information, which can help us more effectively organize our thoughts and goals. I started Jotform to make easy-to-use online forms, but even I appreciate the simplicity of writing some things out by hand.Read More - Entrepreneur / Index: 307April, 2021
Or, take spreadsheets — almost every entrepreneur uses them daily. You had to use another software to share the kind of data that doesn’t fit into neat columns. That’s why my team spent three years developing Jotform Tables — to collect all different types of info collected from online forms and organize them in one workspace.Read More - Entrepreneur / Index: 308April, 2021
Instead of using paper forms to gather employee feedback, distribute electronic forms via e-mail or apps for quicker responses. This approach helps streamline the process and keeps all information in one place.
My company doesn’t set hard deadlines; we urge staff to protect their downtime, and we encourage regular vacations. But after a difficult year of grief and loss, I’m trying to redefine productivity—and I invite you to do the same. Here are three simple tactics I’m using to support this shift.
There are many software platforms that can help ensure you’ve submitted your responses, made appropriate follow-ups, and received links to the published pieces. Jotform’s PR Tracker is designed to record and monitor the important details of your PR leads, so you don’t overlook any tasks and can follow each lead.
If you’re looking for a multipurpose tool to use throughout the wedding planning process, Jotform is a good cloud-based option to try. Jotform Tables has a convenient wedding planner template that can help you keep track of expenses, vendor contact info, your guest list, and more.
When I started Jotform 15 years ago, I imagined an easier way to build web forms. And over time, we realized that our purpose is to make people and organizations more productive. That’s it. We’re not brokering peace or launching space missions, but I love what we do.Read More - Entrepreneur / Index: 313April, 2021
After 15 years in business, Jotform has well-defined edges and much of the puzzle has taken shape. However, we’re still building it out. That process never ends — and even if we did fill in all the pieces, we’d simply expand the puzzle.Read More - Entrepreneur / Index: 314April, 2021
Beginning the day with stream-of-consciousness writing has been a game changer for my business. Every morning, I open a blank page, start writing, and I don’t stop until I’ve filled three pages or 30 minutes have elapsed; no editing or deleting allowed. After a few minutes, I’m usually exploring something worthwhile. Maybe it’s a product idea or a process we could streamline.
You won’t know if you don’t try. But I don’t mean trying once, failing, and giving up. Because you will fail. Everyone does. The key is to keep trying.Read More - Entrepreneur / Index: 316March, 2021
Burnout is 100 percent preventable, and establishing firm boundaries to protect your employees is one of the best ways to do it. At my company, Jotform, we delete Slack from our phones when we take time off for vacations and holidays. It’s a simple way to ensure work doesn’t creep into the time we’re supposed to be using to restore ourselves.
At Jotform, our managers schedule frequent one-on-ones with their teams to make sure they're feeling good about work, and if not, working together to find a solution. This helps our employees feel appreciated and valued.
Jotform is an online application that allows you to create custom online forms. Its incredibly intuitive user interface allows you to drag-and-drop the building blocks of the form you need. Jotform provides you with the tools to improve the experience of your donors and volunteers with signups, registrations, and surveys.
As patients complete their forms, the submissions automatically appear in the practice’s Jotform Tables database. There’s no data input to worry about, which reduces the chance for human error. Staff can share the tables with coworkers, so a nurse can access a patient’s intake information for a streamlined patient care process.
This notion of balance doesn’t just apply to your life as a whole, but your day-to-day. Take me for example. My days at the Jotform office aren’t usually very long, but I do try to make the time I’m there count.
In a virtual world, it’s important to focus on omnichannel experiences for consumers; if one channel no longer exists (e.g., live events), you can still reach your audience in meaningful and engaging ways. Event teams have worked more closely with other parts of the business—including digital, social media, and public relations teams—to craft virtual experiences that resonate with consumers while keeping business goals in mind.
Educators can distribute quizzes, course evaluations, and registration forms for activities or classes using online templates. Teachers and/or administrators can also use online surveys to get critical information about student needs and resources, which can help them design and manage the program to ensure it meets the needs of all students.
Using a survey maker like Jotform can accelerate the process and help you gather priceless, unadulterated feedback on items such as functionality and design, accessibility, content, and more. Product managers should ask specific questions about a user’s exact needs to generate new product features.
The most useful applicant tracking tools can double as an HR management system. For example, some cloud-based tools can automatically collect and organize your applicants’ data in a simple table view. Your team can manage everything in one place — from initial skill evaluations to onboarding paperwork.
Cloud-based forms allow educators to distribute online quizzes, collect signups for extracurricular activities or class registration, and distribute course evaluations. Educators can use online survey forms to gain valuable data from students and/or parents to better understand student needs.
I started my company, Jotform, in 2006. We’ve grown steadily from a simple web tool into a product that serves more than 8 million users — without taking a dime in outside funding. We’re profitable in an industry with big-name competitors like Google.
Supporting employee wellness is not always easy. Between lockdowns, reshuffled family responsibilities, and ever-changing health news, our pre-COVID-19 strategies aren’t necessarily effective right now. Our current work days may not be “normal,” but we can adapt and apply new techniques to help our teams through the good times and the bad.
As leaders, it’s important to create space for conversations that allow colleagues to talk about how they’re feeling. At my company, Jotform, I’ve been open with my employees about the ways in which I’ve struggled to cope with the pandemic. This culture of openness allows conversations that can facilitate connection, and let everyone know that they’re not alone.Read More - Entrepreneur / Index: 329March, 2021
Where people had previously come into a site, gone in, and sat down with the preparer and had their returns done in person, we were no longer able to do that. We saw our programs and our partners across the country using things like Zoom, Google Meet, Jotform, as well as texting and email to communicate with the filers that they hadn't yet served for the filing season and then make an effort to try to get them in to get their returns completed and filed.
Giving feedback takes practice, and a manager who shied away from it beforehand isn’t suddenly going to love it now. However, like many new habits, it can be practiced and improved over time. Feedback is so important, offering it intentionally and consistently is a skill necessary during a pandemic or otherwise.
Part of my previous job at an internet media company was to create tools for editors to build forms, surveys and polls. The problem was that at the time, the form-building landscape offered few good options. I decided to change that, and my company, Jotform, was born.Read More - Entrepreneur / Index: 332February, 2021
At Jotform, we work to collect customer feedback wherever we can, but one channel we really look to for candid feedback is Twitter. Typically on Twitter, people bluntly tell us what they like and don't like. It's important for us to get raw feedback like this to optimize and improve our products.
Jotform is an efficient SaaS app for collecting information within your business or communicating with your customers. You can start using Jotform during the hiring process by collecting applications and onboarding forms, plus use it to get helpful company feedback through surveys.
At my company, I regularly hold virtual coffee breaks with team members to give them a chance to let me know how they’re doing, and also to reinforce how much I value their efforts. This doesn’t mean that an employee has to have knocked it out of the park five days per week; expressing appreciation for a solid job well done is just as important as celebrating a major win.
When I started Jotform in 2006, I didn’t care about sales. As a developer, I was far more interested in product technology than cryptic acronyms like PQL and SAL. Eventually, I realized that without an enterprise sales team, we would continue to lose big customers. We hired some smart people, got the ball rolling, and now, this former blind spot is a lucrative revenue source.Read More - Entrepreneur / Index: 336February, 2021
To encourage as little physical contact as possible, get rid of paper forms and other manual processes. Fortunately, there are many digital tools you can use to facilitate a contactless environment. For example, you can set up an app or registration landing page to share your customized camp registration, waiver, and payment forms.
Instead of relying on paper forms to gather information, find software applications that help you build online forms. These forms are easier to share, require less effort to sort, and won’t end up cast aside in the wrong place — and misplaced as a result.
My own company weathered a series of highs and lows throughout 2020. Before the calendar flipped in January, I reflected on the big lessons I’ve learned from COVID-19; my next step is more granular. My goal was to ensure our teams are equipped to succeed and thrive, regardless of where or how they’re working.
At Jotform, we have a support forum where our customers leave product feedback and suggestions. Our product team pulls information from there and takes note of what customers are saying. Then they add it to a queue and work to make product updates as soon as they can. It's a simple and streamlined flow.
As hustle culture loses its shine, many entrepreneurs are realizing that they can’t simply rise-and-grind their way to success.

I often talk about how my company, Jotform, is bootstrapped, and how I grew it slowly over the years to the more than 8 million users we have today.

With rapidly changing work and economic conditions, business owners know that the need for finding innovative solutions has never been more critical. If I’ve learned anything it’s that the answers are often more accessible than we realize. It’s just a matter of slowing down, finding the right tools, and trusting in the process.
Common use cases of the Jotform Health app include screening for COVID-19, registering for a COVID-19 vaccine, gathering medical history, collecting bill payments, scheduling in-person or virtual appointments and much more.
As the head of Jotform, I strive to embrace the paradoxes that come with running my company. One example is the idea of being more essential and less involved, which I work through by delegating.

Writing down your notes and to-do items with pen and paper is not 100-percent distraction-free, but it does give you the time to think about what you are writing and keeps you focused on the topic or task at hand.
The first tip to manage time is to first define your mission. Before you learn to manage your time effectively, you need to set goals. And before you can set goals that make sense, you need a big-picture understanding of your mission—to nail down the “why” that motivates your “what.”Read More - Tips To Manage Time / Index: 367December, 2020
