Understanding Form Collaboration

One of the exciting new things in JotForm V4 is Form Collaboration. It's a real-time, seamless experience where multiple team members can simultaneously work on the same form. All changes are automatically uploaded so you always edit the most current version.

Whether you're in front of a PC or on-the-go with your mobile phone, building forms with your co-workers is now as easy as sharing a link.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Keep in mind that ALL CHANGES made by EVERYONE will be saved automatically so communication would be a key factor when building and editing forms with team members.

Collaboration starts with the person who wants to share his form with someone else. It won't matter whether the collaborator has a JotForm account or not. Each collab session will have its own unique session URL that you can share with someone else.

To get the link, click the ADD COLLABORATORS icon at the top right of your Form Builder > copy the link > then share it with others. Yup, it's as simple as that!

There are helpful visual cues when someone successfully joins the collaboration. Their respective avatars would show up at the top right. If the person who got the Collaboration Link doesn't have JotForm account, they will appear as Guests (e.g. guest_1234567890).

On top of that, fields highlighted by someone else will be marked by their respective Avatars too. This will make it easier, visually, to know who's working on what. 😉

Here's a short demonstration of someone using a mobile device doing a real-time collab session with someone else using a PC.

Give it a try and start building forms with your team members!

    We are God, baby. I'm Michael. A few words.
    God is able to see the things that are in our hands. Youth should use the fight against demons. Physical weaknesses are age-wise. The disorders are really true. This land, over, the most, disadvantages. They are diseases. Sufferings, viruses, etc. What are the problems coming? Some others are doing the wrong, because they are sacrificed and the idol worshipers are aware. There is nothing in the inside, ie, some of them. ...................................... Worshiped. Done / misuse it. These are in meditation. In this meditation, the spirit of God, the soul, the soul, the only use of human life, all, and the use of it. We have the ability to predict everything in advance. We have freedom, peace, peace and security, and fire power is useful for human survival in all respects. All religions are united. All the castes are united and united. Peace beats everyone who has all the revenge. There is only one teaching for all countries. One does not depend on all of you. Many people came to me. Everybody should not waste time. Should be fast. Atakabadali. Live together. God needs fear. Especially the spiritual struggle is important. The warrior can lift the fallen. Look at the souls. Good .Thank you. Most people do not like the Spirit of God. But the lack of spirit is the futility of faith. The soul must be combined. The soul who is spiritless is equal to the Hindu, the blind, the atheist. The soul, Lenin, the teaching, the suffering, will not be satisfied. If we are with the Spirit, we will fight, Jehoshaphat and Vale, when we fight. That is why the Spirit of God is doing good through Jesus. Leave the Holy Spirit important and do not follow the evil teachers. Spiritualists also criticize the creatures in the fight. Listen, listen to Paul by the way. Do not see friendship in pursuit of the Gospel. Need to be fast, fast.
    Every disease is caused by the devil and does not sin. It will bring it to the Devil.
    But the fruit of the soul is love, happiness, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness, and anxie

    I have only seen so far what you can do. I haven't tried it yet. I did look amazing though. I love the fact that you can share without the others having to have the app.

  • formularioslinkages

    Hi, can I do this with the answers? For example, person # 1 sends the form to the other person # 2 to continue responding, so she can see the responses of people # 1 and continue to answer the form?

    Hi,
    I received a collaborator link from the person who created a form. The link doesn't give me access to the forms that have been completed and submitted already. Would you mind to tell how I can access them?
