    How can you change or delete data from a report within a page of a site without having to use the JotForm?

    Asked by caparika on July 28, 2012 at 01:58 AM

    VERY IMPORTANT - I need help to do the following:

    How can you change or delete data from a report within a page of a site without having to use the JotForm?

    What I want is to edit reports directly on a web page without the need to open the JotForm.

    For example, I need to delete or modify e-mail a list, delete or modify data, or a news report used as a guestbook ... etc..

    Suffice a button on the site, then a window appeared to enter the code and could immediately change the data in that form.

    It is a very necessary, important.

    I am sorry to say but what you want to do is not possible. Since reports rely on the data that is hosted on our servers, only admins (account owners) are allowed to delete entries in a form's database.

    Hence, it is required to log in to JotForm before a form entry can be deleted. There is no other way to do it because we currently do not have an API that allows external web applications to interact with our system.
