How to Use Kiosk Mode in Jotform Mobile Forms

October 19, 2021

We’re excited to introduce a new great feature included in our reinvented mobile app — kiosk mode. You can use this feature on a smartphone or tablet, whether you’re online or offline. Kiosk mode is available for both iOS and Android.

Kiosk mode turns your device into a survey station. Kiosk mode with Screen Lock gives form respondents access only to a specific form and doesn’t allow access to other apps. You can easily and securely receive multiple form submissions. This is a great choice for conferences, fundraisers, social events, trade shows, meetings, other types of events, and onsite and offsite data collection.

The form automatically returns to the start page after each submission. The sessions are completely separate, so the data is secure.

You can collect form entries even if you’re offline. The data is stored on your device and automatically syncs with your Jotform account once you have an internet connection.

To enable kiosk mode, click on your form.

Select the Open in Kiosk Mode.

Choose between the Continue with Screen Lock and Continue without Screen Lock options. The screen lock option will not allow the user to close kiosk mode.

If you select the screen lock option, you will need to set a four-digit PIN. You must enter the PIN to close kiosk mode.

After you make your selection, the app will give you instructions about how to close kiosk mode.

While in kiosk mode, the form will show a Thank You Page for five seconds after a submission, and then it will auto restart. See it in action below.
