How to Create and Publish an App With Jotform Apps

April 28, 2024

Jotform Apps allows you to create mobile apps without coding. You can build apps with Jotform App Builder to store all of your forms in one place and easily share them with others.

How to Create an App

There are several ways to initiate the process. You can start creating apps from My Apps, My Forms, and Form Builder.

Creating an app from My Apps

My Apps is where all of your apps are listed. You can take various actions here such as viewing, editing, deleting, renaming, and sharing apps.

To create an app

  1. Go to My Apps.
  2. Select Create App in the upper-left corner.

You can also access My Apps from the app selector menu in My Forms.

Creating an app from the Form Builder

To create an app using the form you’re editing

  1. In the Form Builder, go to Publish at the top.
  2. Select Create App at the bottom.

How to Publish an App

Jotform Apps has different options for sharing your app. You can share your app via a link, QR code, email invitation, or by embedding it into your website. You can also share your apps on social media.

All the sharing options can be found in the Publish tab of the App Builder.

Access settings

An app can require login or signup based on its access settings: public, private, or company access.

To change the access settings

  1. In the App Builder, go to Publish at the top.
  2. Select Settings.
Steps to access Settings in Jotform App Builder
  1. In the Settings dialog, choose an option based on your needs.

Public Access. All apps are public by default. They can be used without any login or signup.

Public apps have an additional setting that allows users to access their submissions. This setting is enabled by default and shows the login or signup options in the app. If enabled, logged-in users can see their previous submissions or drafts made through the app.

Private Access. App users need to have a Jotform account to use a private app.

Steps to set an app to private in Jotform App Builder

Since all app users will be logged in while using the app, they can always see their previous submissions and drafts through the app. You can also set a custom expiration date for the share link to prevent users from accessing the app after a specific date.

Company Access. Like Private Access, apps set to Company Access require login or signup.

Steps to set an app exclusive to an organization in Jotfrom App Builder

Your app users must have an email address with your specified domain to log in and use the app. To Require SSO, see Jotform Enterprise.
