IFTTT: Form fields are not listed in the ingredient

    Asked on September 09, 2017 at 06:40 AM

    Is it possible to connect Jotform with IFTTT in a way that user-generated form fields can be loaded on IFTTT as part of the ingredients selection? Currently only the Jotform-generated fields such as 'total submissions' or 'form title'  are available. I tried to manually input the fields' unique names, but this is sadly being rejected. 

    I was hoping to automatically add names, email and phone numbers, collected via the submissions, directly to my Google contacts. 

    Many thanks

    Thanks for reporting. You're right, it is not showing the form fields in the ingredient list.

    I'm not sure if this is intentional or a limitation on the API but I'll escalate this to our developers for them to investigate and hopefully implement if possible.

    We will let you know here for any updates.

    For now, you might want to consider using Zapier. It's similar to IFTTT where you can connect JotForm with Google Contacts.

    Thank you!

    Unfortunately, IFTTT does not yet supports user-generated data which in our case the form's field data (e.g. name, email, phone, etc).

    Aside from Zapier, you can also try Microsoft Flow.

    We have created a service on Microsoft's platform where you'll be able to use individual fields (dynamic data) as input value for other services (e.g. Google Contacts)

    I hope this additional information helps.
