    HI,

     

    I have been tinkering with the evaluation  system of you forms.

    At Canon we have a doument management platform that has a rudimentary webforms capability.

    WE have had requests for more complex and flexible webforms, and I am interested in the possibility of integrating Jotforms with our DM.

    We would need to receieve a rendered PDF version of the form along with the data that we could then ingest into our DM system.

    Thank you for your interest.

    You can create a fillable PDF version of a form that you created using the Form Builder. You can refer to this guide on How-to-Create-a-PDF-Form. Please check this related guide as well: JotForm-Fillable-PDF-Creator-With-All-Points.

    You can manually export the form submissions into a CSV file. Here's a guide: How-to-Download-Form-Submissions-as-Excel-CSV-PDF.

    You can send the submissions to your own MySQL database using PHP. However, you will need to create a script that will serve as the landing page for the receiving post data. That script will insert the submitted post data to your MySQL database. Please refer to this guide: How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP.

    You might also want to check JotForm Webhooks. Here's the link: How-to-Setup-a-Webhook-with-JotForm.

    Lastly, please check our API documentation page, here's the link: http://api.jotform.com/docs/.

    Hope that helps. Let us know if you have any questions.

    That all sounds pretty good, however there is one other feture we need, ans that is to have a webform automatically generate the PDF and ibndex data once the user submits the webform.
