    Is it possible to edit submission counter widget?

    Asked by t3rra on May 17, 2017 at 11:14 AM

    I see that there's a submission counter widget. I'm curious if there's a way to add to the total manually? For example, we can start our site today, however, there have already been submissions to it that wouldn't be counted since they happened before the site came online. Is there a submission counter that counts submissions but that can also be added to? Thank you for any suggestions.

    The submissions counter widget is not customizable. All you can do is edit the before text and after text.

    But it is possible to use the jotform API to script this feature:


    Just select your scripting language up the top left.

    But it looks like you can only get monthly statistics. For example:

    -Number of submissions received this month

    -Number of secure submissions received this month

    -Number of payment submissions received this month

    -Total disk space used for uploaded files. In bytes.

    -limit-left is the number of daily api calls you can make

    Unfortunately, submissions widget can not be modified in that way since it is picking up the current number of submissions.

    A workaround would be to add one more short text field:

    And create a condition that will copy the value from submissions widget field to text field:

    I added a 10 there, but you can change the number of course.

    That way you can have added number of submissions and have it as your total number.

    Could that work for you?

    Please let us know.

    Thank you!
