(1) I created a sign document on the Jotform portal. If I send the link to folks to sign the document, how can I ensure that I all signatures and fillable fields are completed on a single document?
(2) is there anyway I can send survey and redirect responses to a non-user, by using her email address?
Hi there, can you share a form template with ONE specific person rather than the whole community?
Thanks for that.

I'm unable to unshare a template. Please inform.
Thank you for the comprehensive reply.
I believe that I had shared my form at one point in time...then it was unshared.
But when it was shared it carried the forwarding email addresses.
I'm receiving random submissions lately. Thx
It doesn’t have an Unshare option

Un-share button does not appear upon edit. I need to delete templates as well. please help
May I share a template I created with just one person or a small group of people? How do I do that please? Thanks!
I cannot delete a form. I didn't realize the template would be made public, I was trying it save it for myself. The "Update Form" and "Unshare Form" buttons are not there for me either.
When I follow the steps to unshare...the update and unshare button are not there. It just gives you the option to cancel or share form
I need to delete a template and when I deleted the form and purged my trash, it is still there. Please advise
I am unable to unshare my form shared as a template. Not getting Unshare option.
What do I do if the template of the form that I want to unshare, it is not part of my forms anymore?
i am trying to share this template
but my friend cannot find the template under search.
Hi, I am having a similar problem. I am unable to unshare or update my form shared as a template.
Hi this seems to be an ongoing issue that hasn't been fixed. Like others, I am not given the option to unshare or edit a form shared as a template, even after following the steps listed in other people's answers.
How do I update a template I shared when the form has been deleted? The template has my email address as a default and I have received a few auto-response emails to submissions from other users.
hi. i am using a shared template, but it keeps adding the original name to it instead of the new one. so it doesnt look like my form. How to fix this please?
I inadvertently shared a form as a template. Please unshare the template. I followed the instructions above, and there is no "Unshare Form" button available to me. I want to keep the form internally, but I do not want to share it publicly as a template.
Here's the location:
I have managed to share a template twice
I shared by mistake, then went to unsure and shared it again
The form is called FB Maint Report
I accidently shared the template. Please unshare the following template please.
I have previously shared a from as a template and deleted but now the shared forms don't appear in the templates. The prompt indicates the form has been saved to the templates.
Like others have already commented - the sharing dialogue does not offer the UNSHARE or UPDATE options so the form remains available as before.
Thanks but I don't get the option to update or unshare form when I follow these instructions.
I can still see it when I search in Templates tab and it appears in My forms even though I had deleted it earlier.
Can you please delete this template shared by me?
It doesn’t give me the option to Unshare form when I went to follow those process. It only gives me the option to share it as a template.
I can't seem to find this in the list of templates even though I have followed these steps?

If i delete my form to add more room in my forms, will they delete also from the template database?
I have three forms that I accidentally shared as templates. I've tried to remove them using the above links, but they don't allow me to un-publish. Ideas?
I followed the steps above, but my form only stays in the Templates Gallery for about a day, then seems to drop off. I have to keep repeating the process so that it stays up. Am I doing something wrong?
When you share a form as as a template do your email notifications get removed?
Can you UN-share a form if you shared it on accident? Or if you made a mistake and want to re-share a newer version?
How can I insert all my text in a database?
