Why should I use JotForm instead of Google Forms?
Google Forms is a basic online form builder that gets one job done: collecting data. But maybe you need your online form to do more than that. Maybe you need to collect payments for your online store, accept donations online for your nonprofit, or capture legally binding signatures on your online contracts. Perhaps you’re frustrated about your form not working on mobile devices. Maybe you wish you didn’t have to manually transfer submission data to other tools you use.
At JotForm, we understand your needs, which is why we’ve made it easier than ever for you to create the most effective online form for your organization. Unlike Google Forms, JotForm offers thousands of form templates, hundreds of form fields and widgets, and dozens of app integrations, so you can build a form that looks and works exactly how you want it to. JotForm empowers you to create advanced online forms that do more than collect data — they’ll also speed up your workflow, increase your productivity, and improve your business.
Is JotForm free?
Without paying a single cent, you can access all of JotForm’s features — yes, really. That includes unlimited forms and form fields, secure SSL protection, and payment processing options. If you’d like to receive more than 100 form entries and 1,000 form views per month, you’ll need to upgrade to one of our paid plans. JotForm offers the best prices on the market; you can get unlimited submission storage for less than $16/month.
Is JotForm mobile-friendly?
Yes. At JotForm, we know you’re working on the go, and your online forms should be as well. By default, all our forms are mobile-friendly, meaning they can adapt to any device, whether it’s a computer, phone, or tablet. You can also download our mobile forms app for iOS and Android in order to edit forms and view submissions on your mobile device.
Is JotForm secure?
Keeping your data safe is our top priority at JotForm. That’s why we’re the only online form builder with PCI DSS Level 1 compliance — the highest level of security for businesses that accept credit card payments. We’re also GDPR compliant to protect the personal data of EU citizens. Whether you’re a free or paid user, all of our forms are protected by 256-bit SSL encryption that prevents third parties from accessing sensitive personal information. For increased security, you can encrypt your forms to ensure that nobody but you has access to submitted information.
Is JotForm HIPAA compliant?
Yes, JotForm provides HIPAA compliance to users with a Silver or Gold plan. JotForm offers hundreds of mobile-friendly medical form templates designed to collect patient signatures, process hospital or clinic fees, and keep sensitive health information safe.

Can I use JotForm if I also use Google Drive, Sheets, Calendar, etc.?

JotForm aims to fit into your existing workflow as much as possible, so you won’t need to stop using your favorite apps to use our software.
Will I lose my Google Forms data if I start using JotForm?
No. You won’t need to say goodbye to your existing forms or submissions data when you migrate to JotForm. JotForm will quickly import your Google Forms data into your new account, and you can resume getting the information you need without skipping a beat.
