    JotForm to Zapier: Request for a 'Create Submission' action type

    Asked by advocacymarketing on May 30, 2017 at 07:48 PM

    Please Add Functionality to Collect Data from Facebook Lead Ads

    I am desperately looking for the functionality to pass field variables from Facebook Lead Ads to my Jotform so I can send emails and Tweets (via Twitter integration) from my Jotform.

    Two of your competitors offer this via Zapier (Wufoo and Formstack) and I despite Jotform being listed as an integration, there is no current integration to pass variable from Facebook Lead Ad forms to Jotform. I have a professional account with Zapier with all the bells and whistles yet there is no Jotform integration that I seek.

    See here no action exists for JotForm: https://www.screencast.com/t/BfqBfh5oH9kN

    See here, action exists for FormStack: https://www.screencast.com/t/htwq5fQc

    See here how I map my Facebook Lead Ad form to my Formstack form: https://www.screencast.com/t/XzRBLQk7qwwa

    I am a long time user of Jotform and I love it and I DO NOT want to buy Formstack or Wufoo just to have this type of integration. Can you please add this ASAP?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You are right we do not currently have a 'Create Submission' action type in our Zapier integration. I believe that this is something that should be implemented. A feature request has been attached to this thread and escalated to our developers.

    Unfortunately, we cannot provide any ETA at this time, but we will get back to you once we have any updates.

    Thanks for your prompt reply. This is a very much needed integration and I would be willing to help fund the development to ensure its timely release. I have a few campaigns hinging on this missing functionality so I would be willing to help financially to move it up in the queue ;)

    Please note that the implementation of Feature Requests depends on the popularity among the users and the workload of our developers. However, I will inform the developers that you urgently need this kind of feature. We will let you know in this thread if there are any updates.
