    Hi there,

    We need to build a form that auto-populate through to our secondary credit check system. The credit check system is a web portal with a simple interface.

    Would you kindly let me know what will be the best way to accomplish this and if the Jotform platform can be used for that?


    Warm regards

    Jaco

    You can achieve it through POST data https://www.jotform.com/help/51-How-to-Post-Submission-Data-to-Thank-You-Page.

    So when you submit the form, it would redirect to your PHP page where you can capture the form data or populate it to your system.

    It is also possible to setup a webhook for your form https://www.jotform.com/help/245-How-to-Setup-a-Webhook-with-JotForm

    If you have further questions, let us know.

    Thank you, will I need to map the fields to match my destination web page or how does it work?

    Your target page has to match the fields from which you're picking up the data from (fields from your form), you can map those fields to fields on your side.

    If you have any further questions please let us know.

    Thank you!

    I'm afraid that this goes out of our scope here in Support. 

    The guide that my colleague provided https://www.jotform.com/help/51-How-to-Post-Submission-Data-to-Thank-You-Page will allow you to post data to Thank you page of the form, you can then there pass that data to your PHP script, for example, and process the data further. 

    For creating such script you would have to hire a professional developer.

    If you have any further questions, please let us know.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for getting back.
    Last question, so I can post data to a separate system through the
    processes that you described.
    Can i also pull data back into my form after the initial submission?
    The system that i want to post to is a credit score system and once the
    submission is complete i would like to get a score or rating back. Then set
    a condition, if the score is below a certain score I want the submission to
    be channelled to one department only by email.
    Can that be done?

    In that case, I would use the source code of the form so you can manipulate the data in that way.

    Then you have to create a PHP page that will process the post data sent from your form, do what you have to do with it and then get the data back to a field to your form on which you can create a condition that will redirect the user properly.
