    Connecting a two page form via API

    Asked by Twells on February 15, 2017 at 09:32 AM


    I have a custom built form on www.pinboardshowroom.com/blackbook2 which is connected to an API... I was wondering if it's possible to pull that API into blackbook... what I want to do is take that form, and also add contact form fields? Is this even possible and what is the best way to do this?

    Do you mean you want to use your form to gather certain information such as contact details and then use the our api to send that into your blackbook page or something like that?

    It's possible to pull the submission information with http://api.jotform.com/docs/#submission-id which you can refer to for details and examples.

    I just saw this answer; sorry for the delay.... What I want to do is basically create the entire form in jotform but I need to be able to calculate the results lik the api does in the link above? I have all of these files and scripts but not sure if it's even doable. I would prefer to manage and do this all through jotform if we can but of course the calculations are the biggest part.

    We have a calculation widget, used by many for getting pricing totals. You may consider trying to setup the same.

    I see that you are using a Dropdown in the given page, we have the same field type.

    For each dropdown option, you can have a calculation value (https://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value).

    After that, you can easily perform a calculation based on the selected options (https://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-perform-calculation-in-the-form). 


    If you want everything to run through API, please check our API documentation on this page: http://api.jotform.com/docs/. If you need help with it, please contact api@jotform.com
