    Asked on June 22, 2013 at 12:12 PM

    Your new api is fairly recent and i was wondering if you could shed some light on few things.  I'm trying to avoid using a thank page to post form submission data. I want to have a web hook on a form and have it post to my 3rd party software which will scrape the data from the post request but i still want the form to keep its current forward http which takes users to sign a form.

    1. How do you set up a webhook?

      How do i set up a web hook? is it just one time http call?



    2. If you set up a webhook on a specific form

    a) Can i still have the form to submit and use existing logic, like for example a  condition on submit forwards users to esign document?


    3) Do you have any C#/ASP sample code?


    Can you go over the whole flow of events around webooks?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can set the form to post data using the Send Post Data feature.
    Review this guide  How-to-Post-Submission-Data-to-Thank-You-Page

    You can still use the e-signature and post your data to a custom page without having a Thank You page. Simply use the custom URL TY page to redirect your form after submissions.

    This guide How-to-Insert-Update-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP describes how to inject submissions data into a database using the Post request

    While this guide Send-POST-Data-From-JotForm-Using-PHP-in-Custom-Thank-You-Page also describe how to scrape the data and immediately use it on another html pages,  from the Post request


    With reqards to your webhooks questions, I suggest you directly contact also the API team.
    You can do so here http://api.jotform.com/docs/#contact


    Hope this help. Contact us again anytime should you have further question.

    Rather than using the Send Post Data+Custom URL Thank You Page workaround, we are very proud to announce that our amazing team of developers have released Jotform Webhooks, please find out about it here
