    Can I Use A Custom Domain For Reports?

    Asked by markashton on July 12, 2013 at 08:49 AM

    Hi,

    Have successfully applied a custom domain to a form.

    Is it possible to apply the same technique to Jotform reports.

    I am currently using the iframe embed option for reports but would prefer to use a custom domain if possible.

    Many Thanks Mark

    Hi Mark,

    I think this is possible with our existing guide on using Custom Domain for forms. Check it out: How to use Custom Domains with Jotform.

    Example: http://form.welvin-rc.com/table/31923714685056 (Using my own web domain welvin-rc.com)

    Will this work? Or, are you looking for a specific?

    Thanks

    Thought I'd reach out on this thread as I know you will see it ... and it is related to using custom domains with reports. 

    I have started using your grid reports using a custom domain and they work beautifully ... bar one thing ... the Page Title Syntax ... its all over the place ...

    Let's have a look at the Page Title Syntax for Jotform Reports:

    HTML Report: http://demomr.myresearch.info/table/32262873580053

    This defaults to the Page Title Of The Form: DemoMR Diary

    Graph Report: http://demomr.myresearch.info/report/31973752897068

    This defaults to the name you have given the report

    Grid Report: http://demomr.myresearch.info/grid/32123734738050

    This defaults to the unchangeable phrase ... Jotform - Grid ?? 

    Now, the grid report is brilliant ... and this custom domain technique requires no tweaking or integrating.

    But rather than having to embed the report to remove the page title reference to Jotform ... which is totally over the top and long-winded ...

    Would you be most kind as to change the Page Title of Grid Reports to exactly the same as the HTML reports i.e. to default to the Page Title Of The Form

    I was hoping this would be a couple of mins job ... just a html tweak in between the page title tags of the Grid Report template.

    This would then prevent the great feature of custom domains for grid reports being undermined by this page title anomaly.

    What says you. Can it be done quick?

    Many Thanks Mark

    PS I don't mind the jotform favicon ... just the word Jotform in the Page Title

    PPS You'll note I've been banging on about this here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/246949-Change-Page-Title-Of-Grid-Report-From-Jotform-Grid-to-Grid-Report-

    True ... but I can't make use of them ... at all ... because of this issue ...

    I only want to use grid reports .... but what's the point of using a custom domain when it gives the domain owner in the page title ??

    So, there's no use for it ... when this counter-factor is considered.

    My experience tells me that Aytekin has more chance of directly reading this thread as he has responded on it ... not so on the other one ...

    .... And as I badgered him to death with regard to making grid reports world-class by adding thumbnails ... its possible that he may go to one of his engineers ...

    "Slap the form title field in between the html page title tags for grid reports will you ... just like the html report"

    If he did that then this thread ... and the other one cited would be done ... and I, and my persistence, would be off the radar ;-)

    Thanks Regards Mark
