How to Use Form Templates

Form Templates are the usual go-to solution of first time JotForm users. Whether you're looking for a template to get started with, a form that closely matches your requirement, or even just using it for the design and layout, templates are the simplest way to achieve all these.

With just a few steps, you'll be able to get started with a readily-made form. You can also browse our Templates Gallery and use a template from there.

1. Go to the MY FORMS page and click the Create Form button.

2. Choose Use Template from the options.

3. Search your form template from the list. Once you found the form, click the Use Template button.

If you wish to preview a form before using it, you have to click the template or hover on the template and click the Preview button/icon.

On the preview window, click the Use Template if you wish to use it.

Note that the default view of our template gallery is the classic layout. If you wish to use a card form template, scroll down a bit and choose Card from the Filter and Sort options.

This entire process will create a new form on your account, and you'll be redirected to the Form Builder where you can start modifying the template.

    How do I change the template file name to my file name? When I try to post the link to my puppy application, it shows Oklahoma Poodles instead of my business name.

    Hi there,

    I'm currently working with a spa to create a welcome email sequence for them. Part of it requires them to send through a suggestions checklist that will have to be customized by the spa owner for each client: as someone who hasn't used Jotforms in awhile, would a form template be the best option for this or is there a better option that I'm overlooking?

    Thank you!

    How do I change the background color on a template I used?

    I copied over a registration form, then added three new fields. Everything looks great, but when testing the form, I can't enter text into those three new fields. The other fields work just fine. What am I doing wrong?

    Olá, é assim que já fiz uso dos Modelos.
    Mas, há meses que não consigo mais e sempre que tento fazer, abre uma caixa de mensagem dizendo que não posso clonar. Qualquer forma que tento, acontece isso.
    Já tratei disso ha uns meses atras, mas o problema persiste.
    Agradeço qualquer apoio.
