    Is it possible to also submit the form to our servers? This way in addition to using jot form to view submission, we can also a copy in our servers.

    Yes, you can enable the option on your form's settings to send POST data submission to your preferred URL. Here are some basic guides that should give more explanation on this:

    Thank you for your quick response.
    I enabled POST, add added the show data URL, but all I get is a "Please wait while we are processing your request..." and when I visit https://www.jotform.com/show-post-data/, I get "No Post Data Received. Make sure you enabled Send Post Data on your form. Then, try again." 
    But I've enabled Send Post Data.
    What could be the problem?
    Thank you.

    When the form is tested within a preview window it may not display the form thank you page properly.

    I have submitted a test entry using a direct form link and I was redirected to the post data page.

    The data can be also posted to the custom URL without a redirect. This can be achieved with a Webhook.

    Thank you.
