    FTP Uploads: Send uploads in CSV format instead of PDF

    Asked by JorisDekker on December 01, 2016 at 08:54 AM
    I know you can export the submissions to CSV, but I want a CSV file and NOT a PDF file to be uploaded to the server through FTP S (or better by SSH/FTP).

    Hi there,

    I want to clarify your request. Please note that every PDF is sent for every submission which contains a set of submission data. If you want a CSV file to be uploaded to FTP for every submission, there are two possibilities:

    1. A single CSV file is uploaded for every submission containing one row of submission data. In this case, your FTP folder will have a lot of CSV files containing only one row of submission data each.

    2. You will have to set up a CSV file in your FTP folder where a single row of submission data will be inserted for every submission.

    We will wait for your reply.

    I can handle both.


    Could I ask you something else:

    Can the FTP option handle FTPS (implicit/ explicit)?


    Regards Joris

    In general, Jotform to FTP as CSV is not possible but maybe my colleague can provide a workaround. I will have to ask him about this. 

    As for the FTPS, I think the integration can handle that. I don't have any FTP details available so I can't try this one. If you can try it, that would be helpful.
