How to make forms mobile responsive

Last Update: May 24, 2016

If you are looking for a way to make your forms to appear more user-friendly across different devices like smartphones and tablets, here is how:

1. While on Edit mode, click the Designer button found on the top toolbar.

2. On Form Layout  section, check the Make This Form Responsive option

3. That's it. Your form should become fully responsive when you check it on different devices.

In addition, we have lots of ready to use mobile responsive themes at our Theme Store that you can use for free!

Is there a description of what "Make this form responsive" does? Eg, what are the breakpoints and what formatting happens at these breakpoints?

Thanks ! I had done the preferences - responsive already, but was unaware of the designer aspect. Will see how that goes.

I'm viewing my form through the form's link, not my website (not embedded yet), and it looks a mess. I am extremely saddened by this as my forms are awesome and took a lot of time to create. My main issue is the fact that the conditions are not working. I will be satisfied with however it looks through mobile as long as the conditions work. Very important! Help me, please :)

It didn't work for me, I have done everything from the instructions. Also I did re-embed the iframe code. But on IOS it is still a mess.

I have tried every idea I have seen in the forums on multiple threads and can't get it to work. I am using Xara Designer Pro X11 and when I embed the form on the main and mobile variants and then preview, one of the variants has no JotForm. Any suggestions? I have tried inserting placeholder, inserting code into jotform, making sure form is set to responsive design at both locations where that setting can be changed. Here is my website
Please use for response.

Hi, I am creating a form that I plan to use for a health survey. Have a few questions please:

1) i don't want the form to be on a website. Instead, my team will examine patients and fill up a form per patient via an ipad. Is that possible?

2) can I have multiple members from my team access the same form and fill it so it all gets added to the same data base.

3) post review, we want to share a copy of the report with patients and hospital staff. Is that possible and can I design the report separately?

Does this apply for Google sites? If so, I made the change and it still is not viewing correctly.

I'm using jotforms to make a popup lightbox for users to read my policies. Unfortunately, when I view it mobile (using the lightbox embed code) it is not adapting the lightbox window size in mobile. If a user clicks on this embed link on a mobile device, they will get stuck on it and can't "X" out from the popup. Nor can they even read the pop-up because it goes beyond the screen constraints and gets cut off. It works beautifully on desktop, but more and more people are viewing sites on mobile, so I really need this feature. Is there some way for me to get this working?
My website is and the link is at the bottom of the page and reads "Policies & Cancellation".

I already have this checked but my form does not appear to be responsive when opened from my iphone.

I am guessing that this is because I customized the CSS, but I don't know how I can fix this without changing the layout of the PC version.

Can you please help me fix this?

Your answer does not work. This is a VERY POOR experience for customers and embarrassing to use.
