With JotForm’s free Student Survey Program, students worldwide can simply and effectively conduct research without any financial investment. Use cases include doing market research, collecting demographic information, getting group project feedback, checking in on student stress levels and more.
The rest of the time, though, I felt like I’d been thrown in the deep end without a flotation device. I was doing marketing, operations, finances and even some ad hoc design work, none of which I’d ever done before but was now my responsibility. Even though JotForm has grown into a bona fide tech company, at the beginning, it was just me on a laptop trying to figure stuff out.
It’s crucial for managers and mid-level leaders to create an environment of openness and honesty. For example, at my technology company, we make it a point to let employees know from the start what’s expected of them, in terms of both formal and informal communication. Setting these ground rules in advance helps equalize the playing field — whether we’re sharing physical space or not.
These are low-risk tasks with an equally low payoff, but that doesn’t mean they’re useless. For example, when a developer joins our company and starts JotForm bootcamp, we ask them to tackle minor software bugs. New hires need to get up to speed before making critical product changes, so these low-pressure, low-stress tasks can be a great way to learn.
JotForm gets the top spot for the minimalist bride and groom who want a solid all-in-one solution. First, it’s a great way to capture RSVPs, dinner choices, addresses, and even song requests. Just choose from one of the 120+ wedding-related templates, either for collecting info yourself or to share with your vendors or wedding planner.
When I first launched JotForm, I was responsible for every aspect of my company, from engineering to marketing. It was a humbling learning experience, and it helped inform what I was looking for when it came time to hire a team and delegate the tasks that frankly, I didn’t excel at.
When it comes to mid-level hires, what I’d like to highlight is the importance of hiring along with your values. Since growing my company from a solo venture into a firm with millions of users worldwide, I’ve learned a lot about the hiring process. Regardless of experience, what takes priority is to always choose positive, collaborative people.
JotForm is a user-friendly and convenient tool that turns form responses, invoices, and contracts to professional and secure PDF documents. By using it, users can share their documents without being concerned about manually turning them to PDF.
It took five years for me to quit my job and pursue JotForm full-time, but in the meantime, I strengthened both my skills, and my belief that I could found a successful business. Believing in yourself and assuming success will follow is not the right approach. Instead, believe in yourself because you’ve proven over time what you’re capable of.
JotForm, at its core, is an online form builder, but we’ve come to see it as something more. The entire tool is no-code, meaning you don’t know anything about coding to utilize the tool fully. It allows users to create, share, and manage forms and anything that comes with the process. We found it extremely easy to use. It basically took around 5 minutes to get an online form up and running.
Research shows that everyone has different peak hours; defined as the period of time each day when you’re at your sharpest mentally. Finding your own peak time can take some trial and error. Learning about mine has helped me tackle the most important strategic work during my best hours, which has been instrumental in helping me run my business.
Dubbed the low-code or no-code movement, the effort includes startups like Zapier, which helps companies connect applications into a single automated process, to Jotform, which helps companies create surveys to collect data from customers. The products rely on simple software building blocks that can be dragged and dropped into place by untrained workers to build complicated applications.
The Bear River Health Department, which serves Box Elder, Cache and Rich counties, test-drove the system in-house and decided against transitioning from the JotForm program it already had in place. "In the end, we wanted to keep it very simple for the public and create less barriers to get their vaccines,” Director Jordan Mathis said, noting that JotForm was “super easy for the public on the front end.”
Countless survey tools make it easy to build and administer a survey. Look for tools that allow you to customize the look of the survey with your brand’s colors and logos. You should also be able to customize the different fields within the survey: multiple-choice, drop-down, short answer, star-rating, etc. Back-end features that help you analyze and report on survey data are helpful, too.
Use JotForm Approvals to manage the entire approval process, from accepting requests to managing and approving them. You can set up automated notifications for parents registering their children as well as reminders for those who need to approve the registrations.
Over the course of running my company, my team prioritized sane, steady growth and avoided set teeth-gnashing deadlines. I’ve always tried to unplug during evenings and weekends, and our leadership encourages our 300 employees to do the same.
I give my employees at JotForm plenty of space to grow their most important ideas. We don’t have deadlines because I want ideas to flourish freely, and worrying about a looming deadline doesn’t do much to inspire creativity.
Once someone completes the approval form, the submission triggers the approval workflow you created. JotForm Approvals makes it easy to track and manage the process, and the automated tasks prevent staff from spending time sorting requests, following up on missing information, and so on.
A no-code tool can set up a review process that collects feedback from multiple managers and coworkers to get a full picture of an employee’s performance. You can create a process that requires multiple people to weigh in and compare self- and manager evaluations side by side.
By having a QR code at your booth, you can give visitors an easy way to sign up for your offer — which is highly valuable and provides a great user experience — while also capturing their email address and contact information, depending on the fields you use in your form.
When we were working on our latest product, JotForm Tables, it was important for me to convey from the start that I wanted our focus to remain on quality versus speed. We ended up spending three years developing this tool with that vision in mind. Why? Because, rather than adopting a “just ship it” mentality, my end goal since the beginning was to create an enduring company that delivers real value to our customers.
One way to better understand guests’ concerns and cleaning preferences — while sending a subtle message that you’ve got this covered — is to survey customers online. You don’t have to create a survey from scratch; there are free and low-cost form options that make putting an online survey together quick and painless, even without technical expertise.
Ever since I founded JotForm, I’ve tried to prioritize a team focus. One reason is practical: I can’t do it all alone. The other reason is more strategic – I’m a firm believer that at the end of the day, a business isn’t its product or its leader. It’s a culmination of its people.
Approvals allows users to drag-and-drop elements in order for teams to more efficiently add emails, approvers, and perform other tasks. Additional features of the new Approvals tool include personalized emails that match approval flows, customized approval settings, over 100 templates for several industries, and more.
JotForm has over 10,000 form templates which give you a large selection to choose from. The categories with the most options are registration forms, request forms and application forms. All of these types of forms can be multi-page forms and are mobile-friendly.
JotForm, a leading online form software provider, announced Approvals, a no-code tool designed to empower teams to automate approval processes and streamline workflows with ease.
The first step in maintaining company culture is creating a solid foundation. For example, at my company, JotForm, it’s been one of my missions to dismantle the “always-on” mindset so inherent in the tech world.
Approvals comes at a time when most of the world’s workforce needs simple, affordable tools that save time and allow them to work from anywhere. With the Approvals drag-and-drop interface, teams can easily add approvers, emails, conditional branches and other elements to an approval process.
JotForm Approvals has a drag-and-drop interface so educators can customize any type of form that requires their approval. You can add customizations to the form approval process. This can include: the conditions needed for approvers, what follow-up emails are sent out, and other elements of the approval process.
JotForm Approvals is a quick, customizable way to automate the rote responses in a form. It enables you to specify what actions follow once a form is received like alerting involved parties, forwarding the form when required, and notifying respondees of results.
JotForm has all the HR/employment forms you would expect: employment applications, employee referral forms, performance reviews, exit interviews, etc. They even have Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and COVID related forms like medical information forms, HIPAA authorizations and privacy notices, COVID self-screening questionnaires, etc.
Hand-writing has several useful benefits. For one, research suggests that the act of putting pen to paper helps you retain information, which can help us more effectively organize our thoughts and goals. I started JotForm to make easy-to-use online forms, but even I appreciate the simplicity of writing some things out by hand.
Or, take spreadsheets — almost every entrepreneur uses them daily. You had to use another software to share the kind of data that doesn’t fit into neat columns. That’s why my team spent three years developing JotForm Tables — to collect all different types of info collected from online forms and organize them in one workspace.
Instead of using paper forms to gather employee feedback, distribute electronic forms via e-mail or apps for quicker responses. This approach helps streamline the process and keeps all information in one place.
My company doesn’t set hard deadlines; we urge staff to protect their downtime, and we encourage regular vacations. But after a difficult year of grief and loss, I’m trying to redefine productivity—and I invite you to do the same. Here are three simple tactics I’m using to support this shift.
There are many software platforms that can help ensure you’ve submitted your responses, made appropriate follow-ups, and received links to the published pieces. JotForm’s PR Tracker is designed to record and monitor the important details of your PR leads, so you don’t overlook any tasks and can follow each lead.
If you’re looking for a multipurpose tool to use throughout the wedding planning process, JotForm is a good cloud-based option to try. JotForm Tables has a convenient wedding planner template that can help you keep track of expenses, vendor contact info, your guest list, and more.
When I started JotForm 15 years ago, I imagined an easier way to build web forms. And over time, we realized that our purpose is to make people and organizations more productive. That’s it. We’re not brokering peace or launching space missions, but I love what we do.
After 15 years in business, JotForm has well-defined edges and much of the puzzle has taken shape. However, we’re still building it out. That process never ends — and even if we did fill in all the pieces, we’d simply expand the puzzle.
Beginning the day with stream-of-consciousness writing has been a game changer for my business. Every morning, I open a blank page, start writing, and I don’t stop until I’ve filled three pages or 30 minutes have elapsed; no editing or deleting allowed. After a few minutes, I’m usually exploring something worthwhile. Maybe it’s a product idea or a process we could streamline.
You won’t know if you don’t try. But I don’t mean trying once, failing, and giving up. Because you will fail. Everyone does. The key is to keep trying.
Burnout is 100 percent preventable, and establishing firm boundaries to protect your employees is one of the best ways to do it. At my company, JotForm, we delete Slack from our phones when we take time off for vacations and holidays. It’s a simple way to ensure work doesn’t creep into the time we’re supposed to be using to restore ourselves.
At JotForm, our managers schedule frequent one-on-ones with their teams to make sure they're feeling good about work, and if not, working together to find a solution. This helps our employees feel appreciated and valued.
JotForm is an online application that allows you to create custom online forms. Its incredibly intuitive user interface allows you to drag-and-drop the building blocks of the form you need. JotForm provides you with the tools to improve the experience of your donors and volunteers with signups, registrations, and surveys.
As patients complete their forms, the submissions automatically appear in the practice’s JotForm Tables database. There’s no data input to worry about, which reduces the chance for human error. Staff can share the tables with coworkers, so a nurse can access a patient’s intake information for a streamlined patient care process.
This notion of balance doesn’t just apply to your life as a whole, but your day-to-day. Take me for example. My days at the JotForm office aren’t usually very long, but I do try to make the time I’m there count.
In a virtual world, it’s important to focus on omnichannel experiences for consumers; if one channel no longer exists (e.g., live events), you can still reach your audience in meaningful and engaging ways. Event teams have worked more closely with other parts of the business—including digital, social media, and public relations teams—to craft virtual experiences that resonate with consumers while keeping business goals in mind.
Educators can distribute quizzes, course evaluations, and registration forms for activities or classes using online templates. Teachers and/or administrators can also use online surveys to get critical information about student needs and resources, which can help them design and manage the program to ensure it meets the needs of all students.
Using a survey maker like JotForm can accelerate the process and help you gather priceless, unadulterated feedback on items such as functionality and design, accessibility, content, and more. Product managers should ask specific questions about a user’s exact needs to generate new product features.
The most useful applicant tracking tools can double as an HR management system. For example, some cloud-based tools can automatically collect and organize your applicants’ data in a simple table view. Your team can manage everything in one place — from initial skill evaluations to onboarding paperwork.
Cloud-based forms allow educators to distribute online quizzes, collect signups for extracurricular activities or class registration, and distribute course evaluations. Educators can use online survey forms to gain valuable data from students and/or parents to better understand student needs.
I started my company, JotForm, in 2006. We’ve grown steadily from a simple web tool into a product that serves more than 8 million users — without taking a dime in outside funding. We’re profitable in an industry with big-name competitors like Google.
Supporting employee wellness is not always easy. Between lockdowns, reshuffled family responsibilities, and ever-changing health news, our pre-COVID-19 strategies aren’t necessarily effective right now. Our current work days may not be “normal,” but we can adapt and apply new techniques to help our teams through the good times and the bad.
As leaders, it’s important to create space for conversations that allow colleagues to talk about how they’re feeling. At my company, JotForm, I’ve been open with my employees about the ways in which I’ve struggled to cope with the pandemic. This culture of openness allows conversations that can facilitate connection, and let everyone know that they’re not alone.
Where people had previously come into a site, gone in, and sat down with the preparer and had their returns done in person, we were no longer able to do that. We saw our programs and our partners across the country using things like Zoom, Google Meet, JotForm, as well as texting and email to communicate with the filers that they hadn't yet served for the filing season and then make an effort to try to get them in to get their returns completed and filed.
Giving feedback takes practice, and a manager who shied away from it beforehand isn’t suddenly going to love it now. However, like many new habits, it can be practiced and improved over time. Feedback is so important, offering it intentionally and consistently is a skill necessary during a pandemic or otherwise.
Part of my previous job at an internet media company was to create tools for editors to build forms, surveys and polls. The problem was that at the time, the form-building landscape offered few good options. I decided to change that, and my company, JotForm, was born.
At JotForm, we work to collect customer feedback wherever we can, but one channel we really look to for candid feedback is Twitter. Typically on Twitter, people bluntly tell us what they like and don't like. It's important for us to get raw feedback like this to optimize and improve our products.
JotForm is an efficient SaaS app for collecting information within your business or communicating with your customers. You can start using JotForm during the hiring process by collecting applications and onboarding forms, plus use it to get helpful company feedback through surveys.
At my company, I regularly hold virtual coffee breaks with team members to give them a chance to let me know how they’re doing, and also to reinforce how much I value their efforts. This doesn’t mean that an employee has to have knocked it out of the park five days per week; expressing appreciation for a solid job well done is just as important as celebrating a major win.
When I started JotForm in 2006, I didn’t care about sales. As a developer, I was far more interested in product technology than cryptic acronyms like PQL and SAL. Eventually, I realized that without an enterprise sales team, we would continue to lose big customers. We hired some smart people, got the ball rolling, and now, this former blind spot is a lucrative revenue source.
To encourage as little physical contact as possible, get rid of paper forms and other manual processes. Fortunately, there are many digital tools you can use to facilitate a contactless environment. For example, you can set up an app or registration landing page to share your customized camp registration, waiver, and payment forms.
Instead of relying on paper forms to gather information, find software applications that help you build online forms. These forms are easier to share, require less effort to sort, and won’t end up cast aside in the wrong place — and misplaced as a result.
My own company weathered a series of highs and lows throughout 2020. Before the calendar flipped in January, I reflected on the big lessons I’ve learned from COVID-19; my next step is more granular. My goal was to ensure our teams are equipped to succeed and thrive, regardless of where or how they’re working.
At JotForm, we have a support forum where our customers leave product feedback and suggestions. Our product team pulls information from there and takes note of what customers are saying. Then they add it to a queue and work to make product updates as soon as they can. It's a simple and streamlined flow.
As hustle culture loses its shine, many entrepreneurs are realizing that they can’t simply rise-and-grind their way to success. Endless workdays extract a personal toll that can include exhaustion, burnout, unhealthy lifestyle habits, toxic competition, and more.
The JotForm Health app is designed to keep practitioners focused on patients rather than on collecting and updating data. This review of JotForm’s health app explores how the company’s forms capability and healthcare expertise power the new solution.
Digital tools like the JotForm Health app are vital in a global crisis. They provide a quick, secure, and affordable solution for transitioning from in-person to online operations. These tools will continue to be important in the future as more and more businesses operate online.
Hiring a Content Marketing Manager can be tricky since this role needs to be well rounded with a creative and strategic mindset, people skills, and writing chops. It's also important to make sure this individual understands your product and brand, so the content is relevant and targeted.
Being able to work with my natural rhythms has been critical to my ability to grow my company, JotForm, and it’s important to me that my employees have the same freedom to work during their own prime times. Our flex policy has led to substantial spikes in productivity, and also contributed to building an enjoyable company culture that helps us attract—and keep—high-caliber talent.
I often talk about how my company, JotForm, is bootstrapped, and how I grew it slowly over the years to the more than 8 million users we have today. Going it without VC funding and refusing the mainstream "startup hustle" advice hasn’t been an easy journey, and I don’t want anyone to get the idea that it didn’t come without lots of hard work, ups and downs, and lots of trial and error.
At JotForm, our New Grad program pairs inexperienced employees with seasoned designers, developers, or other professionals. Brand-new staff members serve as “co-pilots” for senior employees, or work on dedicated projects and receive regular feedback. We also bring in external mentors to stretch our skills in areas like data science and marketing.
The JotForm Health app is an extension of JotForm’s web-based online form builder. Once a form is submitted through the app, JotForm automatically encrypts the data, guaranteeing the privacy of health information.
Recently, during our standing Friday demo day (via Zoom), I shared with my team at JotForm how I see our business like a puzzle — in the center is our original product, the Form Builder. As we grow, we add to the puzzle, with new products and tools like Reports, Apps, and more recently, Tables.
With rapidly changing work and economic conditions, business owners know that the need for finding innovative solutions has never been more critical. If I’ve learned anything it’s that the answers are often more accessible than we realize. It’s just a matter of slowing down, finding the right tools, and trusting in the process.
Common use cases of the JotForm Health app include screening for COVID-19, registering for a COVID-19 vaccine, gathering medical history, collecting bill payments, scheduling in-person or virtual appointments and much more.
As the head of JotForm, I strive to embrace the paradoxes that come with running my company. One example is the idea of being more essential and less involved, which I work through by delegating. This can be hard: There are many day-to-day aspects of my business that I love.
Employees and employers alike have found a lot to like about working from home: It’s convenient, cost-effective, flexible, and productive. But there are also ongoing remote work challenges — especially when it comes to socialization.
Every Sunday night, I sit down in my office and plot out the course of my week. After determining what I need to accomplish in a week’s time, I plan the structure of each day according to my energy and creativity levels.
JotForm, a popular online form builder, is expanding its partnership opportunities with a new Solutions Partner Program.

JotForm Tables is a hybrid spreadsheet-database tool that provides collaboration for all aspects of business, including marketing. You can upload existing marketing data or enter new data manually.
At my startup, JotForm, it’s sometimes difficult to find the exact right person to fill a certain role. Fortunately, we have a great team of employees willing to mentor new hires and less experienced staff members. By nurturing younger employees or helping them develop new skill sets, you’re creating the people who can help you build an amazing product.
JotForm is doing something slightly new and totally revolutionary. It has added smart tables to an existing product, giving it superpowers.
Ultimately, systems thinking leads to improved performance. Getting to the core of a problem before making a decision will not only make you a better thinker, it will make you a more productive leader, too.
Not too long ago, small businesses had limited options for raising capital. Today’s connected world allows companies to tap into a vast network of lending, crowdfunding, and invoice factoring to raise needed cash without the rigors and restrictions of traditional bank lending.
Growing my business, JotForm, from a young company to one that reaches over 8 million users, I’ve learned that there’s nothing more important than having a healthy, supportive culture.
You need a form to drive traffic to that collects valuable data seamlessly for your inbound marketing strategy. JotForm is the easiest way to build forms and includes more useful widgets than you can shake a banana at.
There has been an explosion in no-code/low-code software. Now, you can build a powerful database — often in a matter of a few minutes and without writing a single line of code. Here is all about JotForm Tables. JotForm is a new collaboration tool to challenge Airtable and Google tables.
But technology has changed how artists showcase their work. As galleries struggle to stay open due to exorbitant rent and poor staff retention — not to mention a global pandemic — artists have taken to selling their work online.
Two major things happened to me this year that gave me a perspective shift. The first being the release of our latest product: a spreadsheet tool we spent three years arduously working on, dubbed JotForm Tables.
Writing down your notes and to-do items with pen and paper is not 100-percent distraction-free, but it does give you the time to think about what you are writing and keeps you focused on the topic or task at hand.
The first tip to manage time is to first define your mission. Before you learn to manage your time effectively, you need to set goals. And before you can set goals that make sense, you need a big-picture understanding of your mission—to nail down the “why” that motivates your “what.”
Like many areas of life, success in entrepreneurship is all about balance. None of us can do it perfectly, and your focus will naturally ebb and flow as your business grows. Start by giving your full attention to what’s — or who’s — in front of you.
If you’re selling products online using an order form, consider embedding photos of the products in the form. JotForm research has found that doing so can increase customer conversion rates by 80%.
Contract templates allow you to move closer to automating more of your to-do list tasks. That means you’ll be more efficient. All you’ll have to do is consult your templates to see which one makes sense for each new situation.
It should be easy to find your donation form, and once it’s built, you can direct potential donors to this page instead of a general home page. Your form should be optimized to make the donation process as simple as possible for visitors.
Instead of trying to reinvent the wheel and building a custom form and website, we recommend using a survey maker such as JotForm (we’re biased of course!), to build your survey.
At JotForm, we love using Slack to share our projects with one another, but we also use it to engage on a personal level. We have a general channel where we message work-from-home pictures and entertaining tidbits that happen in our day-to-day lives. It helps us stay connected.
When I first tried to schedule uninterrupted time into my day at JotForm, my initial goal was two hours. I realized quickly just how hard it would be to break the habit of constantly looking at my phone.
Low-code empowers people with zero technical skills to collect, manage, organize, and track data in an incredibly simple way.
A great way to spice us your ‘About’ page is to include an interactive timeline showcasing what your company has achieved like in JotForm’s About page. These can be milestones, such as when the company was founded, large product launches, opening new offices abroad, or reaching an exciting number of users.
Work anniversaries, individual or team accomplishments, promotions, etc., should all be celebrated with the team virtually. This can help keep team members and managers connected, and it reinforces performance incentives.
Take our latest feature, JotForm Tables. This spreadsheet tool is the culmination of three years of work. Some companies might balk at dedicating so much time and resources to a seemingly minor feature. Maybe it’s crazy.
Since states keep changing rules for restaurants throughout the country, it's good practice to focus on promoting takeout and online orders. There are easy to use and affordable tech tools – like online form builder JotForm – that make it easy to collect orders and payments online. Restaurants can even generate QR code menus through JotForm to ensure a fully contactless experience for customers.
JotForm is another good tool for creating online forms that accept file uploads. JotForm also lets you create forms that people can fill and sign online.
However, companies will need new technology to work remotely over the long haul, like tools to manage, track, and organize data. Spreadsheets are fine for some purposes, but remote groups who are working together will need better solutions, such as apps that allow them to easily share and export data, view data in different formats, search and filter information, etc.
No-code “online form builder” JotForm told The Exchange that its revenue is up 50% from its 2019 results, that its enterprise customer base is up 620%, and that it expects to reach “100,000 total paid users by end of year."
As CEO of my own company, I’m a big advocate for leading with compassion. People are dealing with innumerable struggles right now, from lack of childcare, to health care concerns, to financial uncertainty; things are difficult across the board.
I started JotForm long before the pandemic hit, but we still opted to bootstrap simply because it fit our mission as an organization. It was a slower process, to be sure, and it was admittedly difficult to watch other entrepreneurs gain momentum overnight.
Several companies now offer no-code tools to help you build all types of things. Examples include Zapier, Airtable, JotForm, and Shopify. These user-friendly no-code tools walk you through building integrations, apps, forms, tables, e-commerce sites, and the like with features such as drag-and-drop and click functionality.
A designated workspace is a must. Make sure to have a desk, good lighting, and attractive background for video calls. Invest in (or make your employer invest in) tools like a large monitor, ergonomic office chair, etc. It’s also important to have a clutter-free and inviting space so that you can be your most productive self every day.
One way to start including employees more is to ask for their feedback through a formal process, like an online survey. Not only is this an efficient way to gather opinions across the company, but it also provides a necessary outlet for employees to share their thoughts.
JotForm is an easy and powerful online form builder, designed to help you seamlessly collect important information. Gather data through your website with a custom lead generation or contact form, then instantly sync that data to EngageBay CRM with JotForm’s free integration.
At my company, each of our millions of users has an opinion about our product. But we consider their feedback invaluable, as that is how we know what is working and what is not. Admittedly, this feedback is not always easy to hear, but by absorbing our customers’ needs and wants, we’re able to deliver a stronger product.
When we began hiring remotely, we used our own product to build a custom applicant tracking system (ATS). This allows us to store all of the applications in our workspace, where we review and track candidates throughout the process using advanced search filtering, custom columns and tags, and more.
While the pandemic might have been the catalyst for widespread e-signature adoption among the holdouts, the benefits of using e-signatures go far beyond reducing person-to-person contact.
When I first launched my company, I had a very small team. And back then, we all wore a lot of hats, simply because we had to. My colleagues and I worked tirelessly together to build, troubleshoot, and market our product, and nobody complained (at least most of the time).
I created my company, JotForm, not because I was specifically passionate about building online forms, but because I recognized a need in my industry, and had the skills and experience to help fill it. I find enormous satisfaction in applying my natural talents to help people save time.
Companies usually try to take a shortcut while collecting feedback to improve their overall customer experience forgetting that an overall look means nothing. So, when collecting feedback, you should aim at getting feedback about each unique point of your overall customer experience processes.
