    Hello,

    I have a question about the jotform data. Currently, I am working on electron app that uses the jotform data and analyzes it. The thing is I have no idea how to get jotform data after the form is submitted. I know that I can export data to excel, email and pdf. But the electron is fully HTML, CSS, and JS. And it is PAIN to read pdf and excel in javascript. Is it any other way for me to get the data?

    You could forward the data to your own server, and pull it from there to your app(you might need to hire a developer): https://www.jotform.com/help/126-How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP 

    As well, if you or your developer knows about Webhooks technique, you can set it up to connect it with your app: https://www.jotform.com/help/245-How-to-Setup-a-Webhook-with-JotForm

    You may try checking our API Documentation, here's the link: https://api.jotform.com/docs/#submission-id.

    As you can see, you can select the Javascript library and get/post/delete the submission data.

    If you encounter any issues, you may contact our API team at api@jotform.com.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
