    Hi my friend, I have a Jot form. Once the user submited it, he is redirected to another page where I would like to display the values that he entered in the form submission. 


    I know I can use a plugin to post datas from one page to another page, so thats not a problem. My question is how can I retrieve the datas from the form, inside the code, so that I can send these values to another page of my website. 

    I am not talking about the results that I receive by email. Im talking more about a JOT callback that would allow the website to catch the values of the form right after the user submitted it.

    Unfortunately, we don't provide such call backs.

    Submitting a form does trigger a standard form submission, which you can use for triggering other actions. If you need to perform a certain action in your own system when a submission is received, you can for example set up a webhook that sends to your own server:

    This will allow you to receive notice when a submission is made, and perform your actions with that data within your system


    You may also send the data to your MYSQL database and retrieve them to be populated in your webpage.
