Jotform Cards: Frequently Asked Questions Image-1

Why call it Jotform Cards?

Design-wise, the forms you create using Jotform Cards will look like cards. Questions are presented one at a time as cards which can help improve focus and reduce page noise for your form fillers.

What is the difference between Jotform Cards and Jotform Classic?

The main difference between a Classic and Card form is how the questions are presented. In a Classic form, questions are displayed grouped on one or several pages. Questions in a Card form on the other hand are shown one at a time.

Should I use Jotform Cards instead of Jotform Classic?

Jotform Classic is ideal for long forms with lots of fields or if you’re looking for a traditional form layout. For quick and short forms like contact, signup, newsletter subscription, registration, or survey forms, a Card form can help get better user engagement and form completion rates with its unique design and features.
