Typeform vs. Jotform

Typeform vs. Jotform

Typeform and Jotform are two services to create feedback, contact, and survey forms. But which one should you be using? The article Typeform vs. Jotform has everything about the two.

The difference

Typeform’s identity is aesthetic one-question per page forms, whereas Jotform is for general multi-questions per page forms. However, you can use the one-page per form layout on Jotform.

Form question types

Typeform and Jotform Question Types

Both support many, but Jotform has more than Typeform. You will find the basic types, including text, phone number, email, website, yes and no, dropdown, etc., on both.

Jotform has additional appointment and date picker, rating, and spinner features. For the complete list, check out the above video.

Form designs


Typeform has its style of putting each question on a new page. Jotform supports this feature through cards, but the forms on Typeform look prettier.

Form designer

In Typeform, you can enhance the look and feel of forms using various themes. It also enables you to customize them. Here is a list of theme customization options:

  • Font
  • Questions, answers, buttons, and text color
  • Background color and image
  • Logo

Jotform has a better designer panel. This gives you control over customizing the themes. Some of the features you get include:

  • Preset color scheme
  • Page color and image
  • Font color
  • Input field background color
  • Form width
  • Elements alignment
  • Question spacing
  • Button styles
  • Customize using CSS

Form submissions

The settings for a Typeform submission are related to response limits, notifications, and messages. Jotform also supports configuring options related to form submission.

Typeform uses and persuades keyboard shortcuts. On each choice, users see keyboard buttons. This allows simple to complex forms to be filled without using the mouse.

Both show you rows and columns for each response. You can click on each row to open the response in a bigger window.

Jotform also takes the reply’s IP Address and gives a particular ID to the answer.

You can enable sending an email when a user fills out a form. You can also get email confirmations in both apps.

Response visualization

Insights in Typeform

Typeform allows us to visualize forms as insights, summaries, and responses. The insights tab shows views, submissions, completion rates, completion times, etc.

The summary tab provides information about the average responses given by users to each question.

Lastly, the responses window shows each user’s response. You can export the data in CSV and XLSX formats.

Jotform, in contrast, displays form submission and analytics in separate sections.

The Submission section lets you visualize the user’s response in a table format, along with various filtering and sorting options. The table records can be downloaded in CSV, Excel, and PDF files.

The Analytics page visualizes total views, responses, conversation rate, and completion time at weekly, monthly, and all-time intervals.


Email Validation on Jotform

Validations are part of this Typeform vs. Jotform battle. In both, each question type has its own set of validations.

For example, you can’t add text to a number field. The same goes for emails and phone numbers. Overall, this round is a tie.

Sharing options

In Typeform, you can embed the form on websites along with a link, emailing, QR Code scanning, and social sharing.

Supported embedding options include:

  • Full-page
  • Slider
  • Popover
  • Side tab
  • Pop-up

Although you need to adjust your site’s layout, the option makes embedding easier.

Jotform supports sharing through links, QR codes, social media, and email. It also supports embedding forms. Here you get the following webpage embed options:

  • Easy embed code
  • Source code for JS and CSS
  • Embed code for WordPress plugin
  • Pop-up forms
  • Show form in a lightbox
  • Code provides a feedback button on the screen side
  • Embed form in an iFrame

With Jotform, you must write and add CSS and JavaScript to create pop-ups and sidebar functions. However, you can download the form as a fillable PDF to share.

Jotform also provides separate embed codes compatible with third-party apps such as Zoey, Blogger, Joomla, Google sites, Drupal, Yola, TypePad, etc.


Typeform supports collaborations, but only in the upper-hand plans. The free and basic subscriptions only support an individual, so you can’t add users.

Jotform supports collaborating on forms for free. With the unique link, users can edit the form even without a Jptform account.

In the premium plan, you can add new members as users or admins and control who can access forms and submissions.


Templates on Jotform

Typeform has hundreds of templates split into many categories, but Jotform has over 10,000 templates.

These templates allow you to find the closest option to your imagination.

Jotform also provides separate templates for forms, apps, tablets, PDF files, card forms, store builders, approval, and sign-up forms.


Typeform does not have a mobile app. Jotform is available on Android and iOS to create and edit forms. You also get to see responses and download data.

Extra options


We get Logical Branching to create conditional branching between questions.

For example, you can apply “is equal” and “is not equal” conditions to multiple-choice questions. Then, based on the user’s response, you can direct the user to some specific next question.

Another feature of Typeform is Quizzes and Scoring. You can convert forms into quizzes.


You can apply various logic to responses and perform conditional actions.

Another feature is Jotfom Sign, to add a signature field for users to upload an electronic signature.

You can also convert this submitted form into a signed PDF document.

Lastly, it offers an Approval Flow that allows members of your collaborative workspace to accept or deny submissions.

If your style is everything to you, and you want to look unique, Typeform is your thing. Also, if you have a contact form, I suggest using Typeform. It looks great on a contact page.
