    So, my visitors enter data via JotForms. Then, what?

    Asked by lynnsaint on December 07, 2016 at 02:09 PM

    I'm an experienced database developer.  Where does Jotform store records and how are records retrieved and displayed?   I'm accustomred to dealing with database tables, queries/view, and reports.  We want visitors to be able to see records that others have entered.  

    Thanks for clarifying.

    Once someone submits your form, the data will be stored in your JotForm account, no programming necessary:


    The data will be displayed in grid view as well as in a layout similar to the form. 

    If you would like for users to be able to view the data entered by other users, you can create a grid listing report and embed that to your page:


    Or to the form itself using an iFrame widget:


    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
