Jotform’s All New “Form Analytics”

Sometimes, it so happens that the most insignificant details that one happens to overlook tends to make the greatest difference. It is with this is mind, that my brother and I were engaged in a discussion on how beneficial it would be if one could track forms and its demographic makeup.

Apparently we’re not the only ones who think so, for this morning, Jotform released its very own Form Analytics and it looks absolutely fabulous! To be completely truthful to you, creating a form would be a futile exercise unless you can decipher the extent of its viewership and reach.

Celebrate Earth Day with Jotform!

Earth Day consists of annual events designed to focus political and public attention on environmental concerns. Taking place on April 22, Earth Day gives participants the opportunity to celebrate the Earth while simultaneously considering ways to protect it. Despite its now well-known name, Earth Day began with humble origins.

According to Earth Day founder and former Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson, the original idea for an Earth Day-like event occurred to him in 1962. Dismayed by what he perceived to be a lack of political will to engage environmental issues, he felt it would be necessary to mobilize large segments of the public to put green issues onto politicians’ agendas.

Along with Denis Hayes, a Stanford college graduate who put his career on hold to get involved with Earth Day planning, Nelson believed teach-ins could also be used to draw attention to environmental issues. Nelson and Hayes paved the way for the first Earth Day teach-ins and events in 1970.

The first Earth Day was an overwhelming success. For Nelson, “the goal of Earth Day was to inspire a public demonstration so big it would shake the political establishment out of its lethargy and force the environmental issue onto the national political agenda”.

Ever since, year after year, Earth Day is celebrated all around the world with full enthusiasm by its practitioners. Now the question comes up? How can you celebrate Earth Day with Jotform? Well, the Jotform Theme Store has a particular section just for Earth Day.

How to make a Contact form?

Every kind of website, let it be related to business or non-business or even just a normal blog, they all require a contact form. A contact form helps the reader to get in touch with the content writer either for feedback or enquiry. Well and jotform.com makes it very easy to build this smooth connection between the user and the blogger. I made the contact form for this website using Jotform.com. I started off by heading from “form tools”. But after I wrote; “Contact Me” ; It seemed very plain for me. I wanted to add a little life to it. It is very important to make your contact form as lively as possible. Well, not “over lively” but surely “make it look good” sort of lively. So I added an image to my header. It still seemed as if something was missing. Hence; I added a sub text. Now, I was confident about my contact form heading. It looked pretty good to me at least. I moved on to “Quick Tools” where I found Full Name, Email and Phone Number tool. I simply had to drag and drop them. After this I went back up to form tools and selected “text area” to as to add my final “message” section. Furthermore, an end to my contact form by adding the “submit button” which was found in form tools as well.

Now after the basics were done. I clicked on “form preview”. It showed exactly how my form looked. But I was quite unhappy as other than my header everything looked dull. So now I had to make my form look, as I said earlier, “lively”. At first, I added my website’s logo beside the phone number by shrinking the phone number column. Adjusted the logo size to fit perfectly into the form.  Then, I clicked on “form designer”. Now form designer definitely has to be one of jotform’s best features to make your form look really professional and amazing. It had wide range of options and you can exactly design and customize your form the way you want to.
