It was recently announced that the process of shutting down Adobe’s FormsCentral will commence on the 22nd of June, and will be fully closed on the 28th of July, 2015. FormsCentral is a practical form building tool offered by Adobe for creating, saving and sending forms online. Adobe emailed their userbase to notify them of the news, and let them know of the impending shutdown 6 months down the road. They are giving their users ample time because it would be a huge inconvenience to lose one’s data unexpectedly, especially because companies rely on their forms and submissions for many of their business needs. Adobe let users know of recommended next steps, including recommending several online form building tools as preferred alternatives. JotForm is the best alternative, and is the easiest to use which especially comes in handy for FormsCentral users as they’d be switching to a new interface. Adobe has built a solid group of users over the 3 years that FormsCentral has been around, providing varied essential business services, and now they must scramble for an alternate form building service.
Before the final shutdown occurs, users can download as well as edit their data and forms. By June 23, users will only have “read only” access and will be unable to create or distribute forms. We can expect Adobe to focus its attention on other opportunities as well as continue in providing exceptional PDF and Design products and services for its users. Meanwhile, FormsCentral competitors like JotForm will be filling the void.
JotForm stands out in many capacities, including how easy it is to migrate from FormsCentral to its service. After getting the closure warning from Adobe, users started flooding JotForm’s support forum with requests to relocate their forms and data. It was then that the engineers of JotForm sprung themselves into action and instantly built a welcome page for all the FormsCentral users. It provides a best-of-brand tool to help transfer forms and data using a one-step import wizard. By simply entering their FormsCentral login credentials, everything is migrated. Now, users don’t need to worry about losing their forms or data stored online. For the FormsCentral users, it is a moment of relief, thanks to the hard work of JotForm’s engineers. With JotForm’s Import Wizard, users can find a complete solution.
