    Can I created a form that will format a posting for a facebook post. I admin a lost cat page and I am looking for a way to keep posting uniformed so matching is made easier.

    No, we do not have a feature to format Facebook posts.

    This isn't tried... but brainstorming outloud here....

     

    I don't think you are looking for format a post... I think you are trying to CREATE a facebook post, right from a form, right?  For a lost/found cat.

     

    You can create a Facebook post via EMAIL.

     

    Instructions:

    In that way, you can use JotForm's email notification to email your secret email for you.  Images may be a bit tricky, but give it a try.

     

    If that doesn't work... I checked for you.... Zapier has an integration for that!

    @kantime, 

    Thank you for your contribution to Victor's question.

    Victor and @kantime, Zapier indeed has an integration to achieve that, here is the link: https://zapier.com/zapbook/jotform/facebook-pages/ 

    These are the actions that you could trigger based on the JotForm form submission: 

    There is another app that connects JotForm and Facebook: https://automate.io/integration/facebook-pages/jotform 

    It is similar to Zapier and will allow you to create a Facebook post too. 

    Hope this helps.
