Form Widgets is a platform created by Jotform to help you lessen the workload of creating interactive and dynamic forms. It allows you to do things on your forms that you wouldn’t think of as normally possible. It cuts down your work and makes things a lot easier.
Think of it as a way to expand your forms, making them smarter and better than before! You can check our Widget Library of more than 370+ Widgets for your usage. This library gives a much larger, visual, and detailed explanation of all of our Widgets.
So, how do you add a widget to your form? It’s super easy. Let’s start!
- In the Form Builder, click the Add Form Element button.
- Go to the Widgets tab, then search for the widget you’d like to use.
- Click the widget to add. You can also drag and drop it anywhere to your form. For example, the Take Photo widget. Here’s a short GIF of these first three (3) steps.
- As you can see from the GIF above, the form builder opens the widget settings automatically. The behavior is the same for all widgets, but the settings may vary depending on the widget itself. Set up the options, and click the Update Widget button to save the changes.
Each widget also has its Properties where you can set up a few additional options related to the whole widget itself. There, you’ll find the General and Advanced tabs.
To open the Properties, click the Gear icon on the right side of the widget. Please see the below image:
It’s also possible to customize the look and feel of the widget by injecting custom CSS codes into it. Please visit the following guide for more details.
Are widgets meant to work with the available Integrations as well as basic form elements?

Hy I wanted to use jotform with Hotjar recordings, so I asked you how can I do this.
You suggested to use CLASSIC FORM and embed the source code in my site. So I did, and everything is good, except the widgets in my form. The widgets somehow are not showing up on my site when I implement the source code.
What I would like to use as widget is the image selector...this would be the product selection tool that people can send me through form to get the quotation..
Nope. none of the widgets allow me to create a table. I love to sign up but so far, unable to create table which is what I need. Suggestions please!

I am not sure I am reading this right. Are you offering to process payments for less than PayPal does (but we'd still use PayPal) or is it that actually you will now charge for us to link to paypal through jotform if we process more than 10 payments per month with them? we're very happy with jotform - and pay gladly for the service - but the ability to link to paypal to process fees for service seems integral and not an 'add on.' Can you please explain? Happy to discuss.
Would love to integrate with our platform. Do you have an option such as stripe-connect?
Is it possible to integrate with a shopping cart that will then link with the payment option?
i am intrested to this.plz send me more details.....
Been doing this with PayPal and stripe for years! Now you add Square!! Amazing! Now if you just had an easy way to visually edit the response so we could make it look like a ticket.... Like EventBrite
