What's New in JotForm 4.0?

Last Update: April 23, 2017

JotForm 4.0 was built around the idea that making forms should be a breeze. The main goal is effortless form creation anytime, anywhere, and on any device with ease.

You may have seen the improvements we had back when we launched V3 but the new sets of features we have in 4.0 are game-changing.

1. MOBILE FIRST

The entire form builder was built with the mobile-first design approach. In a nutshell, this design process starts from the smallest screen, then working your way up. It is one of the best strategies to create either a responsive or adaptive design. This allows users to create, edit and publish online forms from any smartphone or tablet. JotForm is the first online form builder to be compatible with all mobile devices.

2. 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.

3. NEW DESIGNER

The Form Designer and Theme Store are now embedded directly within the form builder. Change the form theme and adjust design attributes without navigating to a different page. This lessens the back and forth and let's you do everything you need without ever leaving the Form Builder. Below are a few more improvements.

4. OFFLINE FORM BUILDING

Continue editing a form even without internet access. All of your edits will automatically be uploaded once you return online.

5. SMOOTHER DRAG AND DROP

Dragging form fields has been improved for smoother experience, including between different pages in a single form.

6. REVISION HISTORY

Users can view a history of revisions made to any form and easily revert back to a previous version with a single click.

7. LIVE / IN-PAGE PREVIEW

With this update, form previews now display in the same window in their full size, and can be toggled on and off with a single click.

8. CONTINUOUS SAVE

After a change is made, the form automatically saves, eliminating the need to manually click a button each time. Users no longer have to worry about losing any edits.

9. IMPROVED PAGINATION

Instead of adding a Page Break field to separate a form into multiple pages, users can now add new pages to their forms with a single click.

10. IMPROVED WIZARDS

With the redesigned Payment, Widget, and other wizards, you can build a form in no time.


NOTE: Even though JotForm 4.0 is now our latest form builder version you can easily switch back to JotForm 3.0 at any time from within your Account Settings but, it is not recommended so that you may continue to enjoy the latest and greatest features.
