    Is there a way to integrate user account information and survey data?

    Asked by Frederick Clarke on March 06, 2011 at 01:38 PM

    Hi, I was wondering if it would be possible to use data users have already given (age, sex etc.) in survey reports so that they don't have to keep answering questions about themselves.

    For example if a user signs up giving their age, height, marital status etc I don't want to then have to re-ask all these questions every time I ask them to complete a survey but somehow the data they have already given appears in the reports generated by jotform?

    Maybe there are integration features with profile manager or memberkit that would allow me to do this?

    Any help or advice much appreciated. Thanks!

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, you cannot use JotForm as a database to let users use it as for logging in.  Maybe one of these days, JotForm can use intergrations for something like this.

    I will have this put in our user suggestions file for future developments.

    Thanks

    I managed to do such integration via PHP and mySQL.

    Basically,  using the custom thank you (a PHP script on my server) I store the unique id (sumbission_id) on the user's record on my database, and use that to allow them to login and access the forms that they have filed in JotForm
