    Hi

    I am using ajax to pull the data from a form. I use the form id and the API code to do this, it works fine but.... I was wondering if I can go one further and pull a particular value like the persons first name.

    Is this possible?

    Cheers Luke

    You can use API to capture the submission data. Please check this link: http://api.jotform.com/docs/#submission-id.

    You can get all of the field IDs in the form using this API URL: http://api.jotform.com/docs/#form-id-questions.

    If you are having any issues with the API, please contact our API team at api@jotform.com.

    You may also use Webhooks. Please check these guides: How-to-Setup-a-Webhook-with-JotForm and Webhook-PHP-Script-Examples.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.

    Thanks Jan,

    I noticed that the questions also have an id. Where / how do I find those ids?

    You can actually get them in the same URL http://api.jotform.com/docs/#form-id-questions. Enter your form and your API key to get the questions IDs.

    The first number that holds the data is the question ID (qid)

    Example:
