    Hi,

     

    I want clients to be able to go onto my site and fill in a form for a testimonial and then when they click submit I want it to appear automatically on my site for any site visitor to see.  Is this possible?

    Hi, 

    yes it's possible. You can create a grid listing and embed it (trough frame) into your website.

     

    Grid Listing is useful in several ways, a classic example of which is the ability to show the submissions on your web page right after a user hits the Submit button. In the generated grid list you can do the following:

    - Rearrange the order of the columns in the table by dragging the column headings.
    - Make the grid larger.
    - Add/remove column fields
    - Sort Ascend/Descend the data by field.

    To create a Grid Listing:

    1. Login and Open the form in JotForm.

    2. Click on 'My Forms'.

    My Forms

    3. Select the Form from the list and click on 'Reports'.
    Reports

    4. Click on 'Add New Report'.


    5. Choose 'Grid Listing' from the options click on 'Next'.

    Grid Report

    6. You can choose what fields are to be included in the listing. To restrict access to the list you can enable Password Protection.

    Grid Wizard

    7. The url to access the list is displayed you can share the listing using the url. To display the grid listing in your webpage get the iframe code to embed.

    Grid Report URL

    This is how a grid listing looks like when viewed using the url:

    @1to1

    Our built-in reporting features such as the HTML Table and Grid Listing have limited customizability in the aesthetics department.

    It means that there is no way to alter the said report's appearance. Sorry about that.

    Is this obsolete? I don't see any "create new report" in my forms. Only create form.
