Link results from a form to an automatically updating progress bar.

    My organization is running a "trail challenge", during which we are tracking miles run on our trails by the public. Anyone can visit our website and fill out a simple jot form (Email, name, miles run). We have a goal of getting participants to log 15,000 miles. I want to link the results from a jot form into an automatically updating progress bar that can be embedded on our website (like a fundraising bar used on gofundme, etc). Is there a third party application that can take the results from a jot form and do this? 

    Thank You,

    Did you mean, you like to link form submissions to a live progress bar? If yes, unfortunately, it is not possible to do so. The only way to achieve that is to transfer your submissions to your external database such as PHP MySQL.

    Guide: How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP

    Then you can link it to your live progress bar. It requires coding so I suggest you hire a freelancer/programmer to do it for you.

    Let us know if you are referring to something else.
