JotForm Cards: Frequently Asked Questions

It's an exciting time to jump on the bandwagon. JotForm Cards is here - A new and friendly way to ask!

With this new feature, you can now create forms from scratch with as little effort as possible. Reduce the painstakingly long time of building and designing forms manually by using JotForm Cards. We know you have a lot of questions so here's a short list of FAQs that would help.

To help you decide, here are some common use cases where JotForm Cards will be better utilized:

🔘 A quick SUBSCRIBE TO OUR NEWSLETTER form

🔘 Short REGISTRATION FORMS

🔘 A typical COMMENT/FEEDBACK FORM

🔘 And even SURVEY FORMS

The general rule of thumb is to use JotForm Cards when you're building a quick and short form. Of course this doesn't stop you from building long JotForm Cards but, the ideal usage of this new feature is with the examples above.

Some of you may already be familiar with these terms:

🔘 ALL QUESTIONS IN ONE PAGE = JotForm Classic

🔘 ONE QUESTION PER PAGE = JotForm Cards

And this basically sums up the major difference between the two. There are other differences when it comes to features and options but we'll talk about those on the article below.

Design-wise, the forms you create using JotForm Cards will look like, well, cards! Each question will be presented to your users one at a time, per page. Some respondents prefer this so they can focus on answering questions while others may not. Either way, we're giving you (the form owner) the freedom to choose what works best for your requirement.

Yes, they are - In fact, there shouldn't be any difference on how we handle security. The security protocols we have in place for JotForm Classic should also apply to JotForm Cards. You can review our security guidelines for more info.

Even if this is your first time using JotForm, if you have experience with internet browsing, you would be familiar with forms in general. JotForm Classic is just like any other traditional form out there - Questions are laid down in a single page (or multiple pages for longer forms), with a SUBMIT button at the bottom.

JotForm Cards on the other hand offers a simpler yet streamlined approach to form building. Instead of seeing all the questions in a single page, users will be seeing the questions one at a time per page.

It's easy - Go to your MY FORMS page > click the CREATE FORM button > then choose the one on the right, Single Question Per Page CARD FORM.
