    Jotforms are a great way to collect info. I'd like to reformat info collected via jotform for use on a listings type website. In our case the listings would be inventions offered for sale and license. 

    In a perfect world we could marry jorform to yclas.

    Here's the yclas site we've been playing with. It's lacking the fields we need: http://inventions.yclas.com/

    We're currently using a jotform for a different purpose but the info it captures is similar to what we want for classifieds:

    Hi Mike,

    The form submission data can also be exported or posted to databases.

    You can check some of the related data management apps that JotForm can use here.

    If I understand your business process correctly, I think the classified-type listings you mentioned were data that were being pulled from a data source (i.e. a database)

    So if you can populate your database with the form submission data, the only remaining process will be posting those data in the front-end (your website). I assume the posting process into the website already exist on your end.

    I hope this help. Please let us know how we can be of further assistance.
