    Search the Application

    Asked by Jesse on March 21, 2017 at 06:40 AM
    Is it possible to search the applications using one of the codes that i created in the form? For example if i created a fill in space in the form called Tax File Number:

    and the person that fills out the form writes down some numbers like 233 233 233, can i search the applications using the Tax file number and if i type 233 233 233, that particular application will be in the search result??

    You can search for the information from the submitted forms in the submissions view. Please refer to the following guide that can guide you through the submissions view.

    There is a textbox to enter information to be searched from the submissions received as shown in the below image.

    If you intend that the users who visit to fill the form should be able to search from submitted data, then your scenario involves a call to a Database. That is not possible to be accomplish with Jotform. My recommendation would be to download the full source code of the form and apply some PHP/MySQL programming to meet this requirement.
