    How to send POST data to my website?

    Asked by smilenj on March 25, 2017 at 08:10 PM

    I have a form and I want the data to be used in a website for the user that submitted the form.  Basically, they would go to a webpage, hit a button and one of the items they entered would be displayed. Not sure how they can login in to stay associated with their data.

    Since you don't have a login option is there another way to do this?

    Hey Joey, from how you described it, it looks like you wanted to post some data to your website based on a form that was previously submitted.

    This can be achieved by enabling the Send POST Data feature.

    Related guide: How-to-Post-Submission-Data-to-Thank-You-Page 

    Afterwards, just enable your Thank You page to redirect to a URL where you will fetch the POST data. Keep in mind that, from here on out, you (or your developer) would have to craft the script you need to fetch the data being posted.

    If your page uses PHP, I'm linking a guide below that might help.

    Here's an example form showing exactly how this will work: https://form.jotform.com/63239111604952
