    2.Can you describe how submit is like? Currently, I do not have to submit forms anywhere.

      However, if I create this kind of URL, my URL shall be counted as one, right?

     If I would not be accounted as one, you suggest me not to click the button of Submit, right?

    Can you describe how submit is like? Currently, I do not have to submit forms anywhere.

    There appears to be a confusion on how a submission works. You are not the one who's supposed to be submitting a form, it's your users/customers who will click the submit button.

    However, if I create this kind of URL, my URL shall be counted as one, right?

    I'm not sure what URL you're referring to. Each form you build in JotForm comes with its own standalone URL. You can share this URL with your users/customers if you want them to fill out your form.

    If you have a website of your own, you can embed your forms there. We have a detailed guide that covers most of the CMS platforms along with all the other embed methods available for you.

    If you're not sure what you're using right now or which one to choose, we usually recommend the iFrame Embed method as it works most of the time on any website.

    If I would not be accounted as one, you suggest me not to click the button of Submit, right?

    No, you're not supposed to click the Submit button. Your users/customers are the ones who should. They are the ones filling out your form and submitting it. You are the form owner and you receive these submissions in turn on your Submissions Page.

    Thank you for your kind reply.

    I have confirmed it.

    >I'm not sure what URL you're referring to. Each form you build in JotForm comes with its own standalone URL. You can share this URL with your users/customers if you want them to fill out your form.

    What I mean URL is as follows.

    My guess is creating URL has nothing to do with counting submission, right

    >Three guides you pointed me out
    Thank you, but let me go over them step by step. Currently, I am afraid to check them. 

    >No, you're not supposed to click the Submit button. Your users/customers are the ones who should. They are the ones filling out your form and submitting it. You are the form owner and you receive these submissions in turn on your Submissions Page.

    I have confirmed it.

    You're guess is right - The URL has nothing to do with your Submission count. The URL shown on the screenshot you sent will be the same as the URL you will get from your Form Builder's PUBLISH section.
