About Us


A Short History 

It was a dark and stormy day at the office. The year was 2006, and Aytekin Tank was working as a software consultant in New York City. He kept running into the same pain point at work. Coding online forms was such a time suck! Not only was it time-consuming to build online forms, but it was not the most enthralling of tasks.


Aytekin browsed online, trying to find an easier way to go about the task. He quickly realized that there was no great solution on the market to simplify the process. Web-based form builders were painful to use. You would add a question by going to an "Add Question" page. JotForm introduced the idea of building a web form on a WYSIWYG form editor using JavaScript drag and drop and AJAX. You can read more about how he came up with the first version on this blog post.


JotForm’s userbase was steadily increasing, and spreading the word about the product. Working during the day, and working on JotForm at night became unsustainable as a side project, and Aytekin decided to make the leap to working on JotForm full time. Building out the team slowly and deliberately, Aytekin decided to bootstrap his company. Now headquartered in San Francisco, JotForm has never received any outside funding and has experienced continued growth. We like keeping things independent, creative, and fun. Our team is global: we have another office in Ankara, Turkey. Our 20-strong support team works from various countries around the world. This allows us to deliver 24/7 customer support.


Today, JotForm has over 4 million users from over 177 countries. More than a thousand new users create accounts on JotForm every day. As a globally used tool, we’ve made JotForm available in over a dozen languages. Let’s walk down memory lane and take a look at the first version of JotForm, which was released in 2006:



JotForm 1.0



Here was an early growth chart.

Here at JotForm, our mission is to make it easy for anyone to create online forms. We have a culture of listening to our users, and many new features have been prioritized and built due to user demand. We’re very excited about the future. If you love JotForm, please tell your friends and colleagues about us. Thank you for all of your support along our journey.

    Hello-
    I am the Sr. Creative Director for ESSENCE Communications and we use JOTFORM for various forms internal and consumer facing for our marketing capabilities. Examples are, surveys/ job request forms etc.
    I'd love to set a meeting/call with an account manager or actual developer to discuss opportunities that can open up the parameters of what can be customized outside of the programmed build. We run into issues like image scaling, font library blocks and sizing. I can be contacted via email and look forward to your response.
    Best,
    Allyson Brown

    How can I speak to someone directly? Is there a good phone number to call? The number that I found on the web 858-550-7500 does not work.

  • Sylvia M Coulter

    I see a pending charge on my American Express account from Jot.com with no transaction contact information (company phone number or address).

    I did not / do not want a membership to Jot.com.

    Please cancel the charge immediately.

    Thank you,

    Please Help! I am in the middle of baseball signup for a 750+ player league and all of my forms with Adobe Sign are not working. I have submitted a request via the support forums along with screenshots of the error only to be told it was forwarded to the dev team and nothing more. As much as I like this site, I need this fixed ASAP. If I cannot get someone to get in touch with me regarding a time frame for a solution, how to I request a refund of our just purchased SILVER level membership. We cannot have these forms fail on the first 2 days and it is extremely inconvenient to not be able to call someone when something urgent and time sensitive is occurring. Email is fine for normal issues and questions, but horrible customer service for real problems.

    Please advise,

    Sara

  • OCHSevents

    why does it take so long to get a reply to the question I posted? Maybe if you had a phone number for people to call, it wouldn't be so annoying.

  • Heather

    No matter what hoops I jumped, and even as I used my email to communicate with support, my email was always rejected as being invalid.

    My email is NOT invalid.

    JotForm is invalid, and I will never use it. Ever.

    Let's see if it works this time, when I used CAPS in front.

  • nationwiderealty2018

    WHY YOUR COMPANY TO SLOW TO REPLY TO THE QUESTION WE LODGE?

    Good Day

    I recently received an email from a client indicating that he had completed our Supplier Questionnaire on 8 March.

    To date I have not received a notification so I attempted to login to your website but I am unable to do so. I keep receiving a message stating that either the user name or password is incorrect.
    I attempted to use the “Forget Password” option both yesterday and today but have not received the automated email either, which would allow me access that way.

    The last notification that I received was on 6 Feb 2019 and nothing since then. I am aware of at least 2 forms which should now be on the website and I really need the information urgently.

    It would be appreciated if you could look into the reasons why I can no longer
    1. access the site
    2. receive notification

    Another problem encountered is that I am unable to find a place on your website where I can send a query. If I go to "Contact Us" - I am directed to FAQ's which is not what I need.
    Regards

    Prezados boa tarde.

  • Steve Tocker

    I just signed up today but, when I try to login get "Login failed - AUTOSUSPENDED". I tried the 'Contact JotForm Support' page but it requires me to log in!!!

    Not a great start to my Jot Form experience. Please advise.

  • CastingBCMP

    I've been trying for the last few hours to get my username changed. I received a response quickly asking if I was sure about the change. I responded that I was and am now waiting for four hours to either have it changed or have someone respond. Is there a telephone number I can call to speak to someone who can assist?
    Thanks.

    I changed my email on my profile and now I can't login to my account. I used the same email as my username.

  • Ramon L Rodriguez

    Please, I have to tell you that I lopve your product, but there are two things:

    I would love to have an app that I can open and bring a particular form for people to handle in my office ina tablet.

    second, make it easier to log in. I mean, stop the ads, and put a big LOG IN icon to make it easier and more convenient.

  • S. Nightwing

    I've been supporting JotForm since 2012 when it was just starting to get popular & the yearly subscription was cheap! Now I'm so glad JF let me be grandfathered in with my initial cost. I don't do a lot of forms since I'm not doing as much web design nowadays, but I'm sure gonna keep that cheap price & probably never cancel my account unless I die, which hopefully, will be a long time from now!

    Best Regards, & I love the orange cat!

    Whoa. I'm excited to start making forms when I need them. Gracias 🤗❤️

    The person who set up our Jot Form is not longer working with us. We want the ability to archive old forms but I am not the owner so I cannot do that. Any suggestions?

  • Jane Nordberg

  • Katie Fisher

    Question: If I am to use your product, can I track responses? Also, can I track who the respondents are? OR are the respondents anonymous?

    Thanks you for any assistance!

  • Martin Solé

    Easy and useful. We replace paper with jotform.

    Love stories like this. I'm a little in-love with JotForm at the moment.

    Great work!!

  • Jeanne-Catherine Ellis

    Aytekin bey: I am impressed with your blog and would like to share it with a friend of mine. However, the friend has done some hurtful things to me recently, and I am not ready to re-initiate contact. If you are willing to do so, I would ask you to contact him directly. I would very much like to help him with his own blog and website, but I have no particular expertise in either area... and I see that you do. Furthermore, I believe you are both from the same city, and might benefit from sharing each other's experiences.
    I would be grateful for a response of any kind - even a simple acknowledgement of this message, with nothing more.
    If you are interested, however, I would be delighted to know this. I think there is good to be done here. Inshallah.

    Who is Vanessa Trapero and why is this person showing up as a collaborator when I'm viewing my form? I do not have any collaborators.

  • CANCELL MY ACCOUNT AND STOP CHARGING ME!!!

    You are not responding to my requests and I will be lodging a complaint with my credit card company. You are unauthorized to charge my card and it is now illegal!

    please respond and refund the payment done wrongly for 1 year subscription instead of one month

  • Melinda Nikolas

    Can you use jotform as a registration tool and have it send a text message to the Registrant if the text message is set up prior. Do we have to already have the data for registration such as name and mobile number to begin with?

    Was talking to someone through the blog at one point and they told me it could and would cost about $1k.... please verify as we have an event coming up in March and really would like to use this technology.

  • deejazz

    Why can't I access my forms?

  • Scott Haydon

    Work for a state agency in U.S. We are looking at how to address 508 accessibility on our forms and publications.
    Are your forms 508 compliant? (https://www.section508.gov/content/learn). We are not a federal agency but the same requirements are slowly coming.

  • Maria Clancy

    Congratulations on your success!!

    Thought you'd like to know there is a small typo on this webpage : https://www.jotform.com/story/

    Perhaps 'loot' should be 'look' in this sentence:
    "Let’s walk down memory lane and take a loot at the first version of JotForm, which was released in 2006:"

    Trust this feedback helps :)
