    Hi, I’d like to know if it’s possible to Load a Content from a outside DataBase. Example: I’m creating a Form that I need to select the Project from another APP, named Redbooth. I developed the API for Redbooth returning me a JSON list of projects inside my application... Can I use it inside Jotform? The idea is to synchronize the “Select Project” field with Redbooth’s Database.

    Thank you for reaching Support.

    It's not possible to do it directly on the form builder at the moment.

    You could, however, get the form's full source code ( and prepopulate the field/s using JavaScript.

    Additionally, you might wanna take a look at this guide( and if it's something that could help.

    Please give it a try and let us know if you need further assistance.
