How to Create a Blank Table in Jotform Tables

March 2, 2023

You can manage your data collected outside Jotform in Tables by creating a standalone or blank table. This can also be helpful if you want to clean up a list, create workflows, filter data, or create automated reports.

To create a blank table

  1. Go to My Tables and choose Create Table in the upper-left corner.
An arrow pointing to the Create Table button in My Tables.
  1. Next, select Start From Scratch.
The Start From Scratch option in the Create a New Table dialog.

Your new standalone table should now be created.

You can now use, in this table, the features available in Jotform Tables to manage your data. Start by customizing your table columns. To learn more, see How to Add and Organize Columns in Jotform Tables.

Create new entries by adding rows. Any entries manually added to a standalone table don’t count toward your monthly submissions.

Creating a Form from the Table

A standalone table is slightly different as it’s not connected to a form and is only accessible from the My Tables page.

To create and connect a form to your standalone table

  1. Click the Form button in the upper-right corner.
  2. Select Edit Form from the menu.

Selecting any of the following options from the menu will also create the form:

  • View Form — Opens the form in a new tab.
  • Assign Form — Redirects you to the Publish tab in the Form Builder.
  • Edit Form — Opens Form Builder to customize your form further.
