2. Custom Sender Email Address
If you’d like to be able to keep the line of communication going between you and a form respondent, you can use your email address (or an email address of your choice) to send autoresponder emails, which is set to [email protected] as a default.
This can come in handy when form respondents may have follow-up questions. Here’s how it works. Once your customers complete the form, they are sent an autoresponder email that thanks them for sending their message directly from your email address.
It’s a more personal touch, and makes it much easier for the form responder to follow-up with you directly with additional questions. This is a great way to streamline your communication flow.
3. Collect e-Signatures
There are many times when a company needs to collect signatures online, such as for officiating contracts and signing agreements. It is an unnecessary and tedious process to ask someone to print out a document, sign it by hand, then return it via fax or email.
It’s far more efficient and effective to have the document signed online, which is why JotForm offers e-signing services like Docusign, Adobe Sign, and JotForm’s own E-Signature widget that can be added to any form.
