JotForm claims to be the quickest and easiest way to build an online form. Users can build contact forms, job application forms, customer satisfaction surveys and many other forms in a matter of a few minutes. The forms can be customized to meet the user’s needs. The form builder begins with a large, empty canvas. The system works with a handy drag and drop design. The user selects the elements they want and drags them over to the blank form. After generating and posting the form online, the user will begin receiving responses via email each time someone fills out and submits the form. JotForm allows almost anyone to build a neat, organized form that looks professional without the need for extensive web design or programming knowledge to get it to function properly.
JotForm was created in 2010 by Interlogy. The Interlogy team remains small, consisting of fewer than five individuals. However the reach of their products is far, including services provided for more than 300,000 websites. JotForm was the company’s second creation followed by MemberKit. Prior to JotForm, Interlogy introduced Profile Manager Premium to help website owners manage user memberships. Today, Interlogy continues to develop these services and tools to help the average user find an easy, affordable way to manage various services and tasks on their websites and blogs.
There are a few ways to create a form online. Many people assume that to build an online form, they must have knowledge of web design and coding. Thanks to applications like JotForm, this is becoming less and less true. Anyone can quickly create a customized form to post on their website or blog through JotForm. The drag and drop interface helps simplify the process and make it possible for even a novice user to quickly build a professional looking online form.
The JotForm website uses a rich black and orange design that provides an attractive contrast without making the site look too busy. The form creation tool is very well organized and easy to use. By simply dragging and dropping elements on to the blank form canvas, the user can get started right away. Additional editing tools, including fonts, colors and more, are conveniently positioned across the top of the canvas.
New visitors can create a JotForm account by clicking on the small, orange “Create a Free Account” button found along the left hand column of the page (this may require scrolling down to locate). The brief registration form requires a username, email address and password. After submitting the information and clicking the grey form creation button on the following page, the user is taken directly to the blank form canvas.
