    Let me know if this product will support our needs

    Asked by Harrison on March 11, 2011 at 11:16 AM

    I’m trying to determine if your team’s product offerings can eliminate us om “re-creating the wheel” or if what we’re trying to do is custom enough that it makes no sense to take a step down the path with your product offerings

    The project involves creating a grading / report card / feedback mechanism.  The customer answers 50 questions on a scale of 0 – 10 in 8 major categories.

    Each question / category has it’s own “weighting” in the scoring mechanism.

    When a user (unique user id) enters an “answer” – the results are stored in a questionnaire table; the approach we’re taking right now has us storing that value as a variable / interim value until the calcs are performed and then the result is passed into the database and stored  in a “report card” table linked by unique user id.

    Passing data like this into a database; getting the results out, etc…can we stop doing this on our side and have your whole product offerings handle – or was your product line never intended to handle this type of scenario……

    please let me know…..harrison

    Yes, you can create the form using JotForm and use Send Post Data feature to pass the entered values back to your database or trigger a report card creation.

    I agree with your first statement. You do not need to re-invent the wheel. JotForm's speciality is to let you create great looking forms quickly. It supports 40 different input field types. For example, see the amount of new functionality we added to the file upload fields today:
