Formstack forms mobile responsive

Formstack is fully mobile responsive.

JotForm has responsive forms, but it takes a couple extra steps to ensure your JotForm forms work properly on all screen sizes. You either have to drop in a mobile widget or do some custom resizing with CSS. However, Formstack forms are mobile responsive on all devices in all situations automatically. No CSS or widgets required! Demo our builder now to see for yourself!

More power for your entire organization.

Reduce UI hassle with Formstack

Reduce hassle.

It's not fun building online forms if you're using an outdated and confusing UI. At Formstack, we're always investing in our product to meet your needs. We provide a clean, modern UI that makes it more enjoyable to build and optimize your forms.

Formstack has data submission strategy

Eliminate inconsistency.

If you reach your submission limits with the JotForm form builder, all new submissions are disabled. That's a lot of lost data! Formstack helps you keep your data collection strategy consistent by providing you with submissions through email even after your forms hit their submission limits.

Accomplish more.

Accomplish more.

Make better decisions with insightful data from our Conversion Kit and sharing features that you can't get with JotForm. Partial Submissions lets you view the data someone entered in your form before they decided to not click Submit, and Field Bottlenecks helps you pinpoint the factors that cause people to abandon.

Collaborate better.

Collaborate better.

It's hard to stay organized if you don't have a good way to share and collaborate on data with your team. Streamline departmental processes like PTO requests and project proposals by letting people approve or deny requests with Approvals. For even greater process streamlining, use our Approvals tool.

Automate your workday.

What if you could save an extra hour every day? Imagine what you could accomplish. Formstack makes this possible through Workflows, a tool that lets you build automated workflow processes that move across multiple team members. There's no need to use multiple forms to complete a task. Workflows lets several people review, edit, and complete a single online form.

256-Bit SSL

Protect your form data with the industry standard for viewing and sending sensitive information online. Every Formstack form comes with 256-bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) enabled.

Data and Email Encryption

Encrypt information in Formstack's database to ensure no one but you can read it. This is required if you're collecting sensitive data like credit card details and social security numbers.

CAPTCHA

Opt to add CAPTCHA to your forms to create a more secure form submission process. Spammers won't be able to submit bogus information, and your database will be clean and error-free.
