I work for a community center and was wondering which package would be best. We have about 20 pages of forms, some that require signatures which is why we are upgrading from google forms. We enroll about 50 people a month. Would the 25 per month package suffice?
Thank you in advance.

Hi, I have my settings to email me a report of the submission with the file uploads. When they are jpegs the images are included in the emailed pdf, but when they are pdfs they are not included in the emailed report. it is just a link to the pdf. is there a way to get the emailed report to include and image of the pdf, or append the pdf to the emailed pdf. i hope that makes sense.

Thats big, you guys are the best free form builders.
Indeed the best!
Jotform is the best form creator !
Yeah, we noticed that too. They implemented our form in their own lightbox mechanism, so the form didnt fit properly. Unfortunately,
it was out of our hands at that point.
This is excellent. Now we're playing in the "Big Leagues"!
Just one minor problem I noticed when the form loaded:
Go Jotform! That'll give the service some great exposure.
You can allow all types of files simply by putting * in the box.
When I upload a file (PDF or doc)through browse button to my website & hit submit button I get email with all the fields on my form,but I cannot open doc file. When I click on it it shows zip file which I save on my hard drive & try to open it, it shows only xml files but no doc file. How can I get orignal file uploaded through form in my email.
Is there a maximum number of file types allowed?
