    External access by web service

    Asked by ualv on May 16, 2012 at 11:37 AM

    Good afternoon,

    I wonder if you can remotely access the data in the database from my account, which are submitted by the candidates, since we need to have a web service for teachers, that indicate the total submissions made in 1 form.
    Perform daily exports to excel is not enough, since the data have to be worked and the information is not in real time.

    any suggestions?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    We do not provide direct access to the submissions database. However, you may try a workaround:

    How to Insert or update form submissions to your MySQL database using PHP

    Alternatively, you may try our Google Docs integration to configure your form to send the submission data into the Google Spreadsheet in realtime.

    You can also get the form data using other reporting options:

    If you would like to get the complete control over your data you can take a look at our JotForm Licensing solutions:


    Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
