JotForm is an online tool that allows you to create and customize fillable forms for your website. With thousands of pre-designed templates – like job applications, polls, marketing surveys and much more – and a variety of themes to choose from, you can be up and running in minutes.
Plus, with basic forms in Weebly and Squarespace, you don't have the option of allowing users to upload a file. If you want people to be able to upload a photo, resumé or document, you're stuck unless you install (and probably pay for) an app.
With JotForm, once you sign up for a free account, create a form (using a plain or pre-designed theme) and connect it to your website, users are sent to a secure page to fill out information which gets logged into your JotForm account. You'll get an email when someone fills out the form, too, so you'll know right away when you receive a submission.
You can provide a thank you message immediately upon submission of the form or else take people back to a page on your website. Want to send an immediate email follow-up? You can do that, too, as well as connect your data with other apps such as PayPal, Dropbox, Google Spreadsheets, MailChimp, SalesForce and more.
I've heard of a few issues with the size of forms and buttons on mobile devices, but for the most part, users seem really happy with the options and third party integrations available with this tool.
