    Feature Request: Bypass Jotform System Submission Data

    Asked by wftinc on June 22, 2013 at 12:01 PM

    Is it possible to have the survey results sent (via PDF or any other format) to Drive or Dropbox?

    I would like to do this so that only I have access to the data collected and not Jotform or anybody else.

    Unfortunately that is not possible. All data submission will be sent to Jotform system before it is able to send a copy of the submission data to Dropbox or Google drive. When you integrate Dropbox, it will automatically create a PDF file of the submission data though this will also be recorded to Jotform system.

    If you have any other questions, please contact us again.

    That would be a great way to give some comfort to those that are looking for the security / privacy that JotForm does not offer.

    I would suggest that you look at implementing a feature were the data is passed off securely, then automatically wiped from your database.

    I have forwarded your concern to our developers to consider the feature you want to be integrated in Jotform. At the moment, all submission data will have to pass to Jotform system.

    Thank you. It seems from reading the forums that many users are looking for a feature like this to give them greater security / privacy.

    I eagerly await.
