    You have a great company and your forms have saved me a tremendous amount of time.

    I am about to begin work on another project and I would like to have a form that can be filled out, submitted, and then the info put on the website.  The idea is to be able to submit a listing.

    I know this is a lot to ask but can Jotform be used for this?

    The best option you can use here is the Jotform Webhooks,  this feature would replace Send Post Data + Custom URL Thank You Page workaround in order to help you transfer forms data to your own database using your own script codes

    Please find out more about it here.


    However, if the listing you are pertaining to is a Listing Report, the perfect option here is to show a HTML table listing report on your website.


    The report may be accessed via direct link on our website, and placed (embedded) on your web pages. Report embedding option may be useful if you want to share the submitted data between form users.

    It comes with an optional Password protection, and sort submissions data by Ascending/Descending order (try to click on the column titles on your live report) features.

    Let's start with creating your first HTML Table Listing Report.

    1. Click on the 'My Forms'  link.

    Click on My Forms

    2. Click on your form to 'Select' it.
    Select the form

    3. Click on the 'Reports' drop down, and then select the 'Add New Report' option.

    Click on the Reports

    4. Select the 'HTML Table Listing', and click on the 'Next' button.

    Add New Report

    5. Set the report 'Name', configure your report 'Fields', and enable the 'Password protection' option if you need it, then click on the 'Next' button.

    Report Options

    6. That is it. The report is ready. You will get a 'Direct link' to the Report, and the 'iFrame code' (that code is used for embedding, so you can embed the report on your web pages).

    Access and Share the Report

    This is how the report will look like:

    Thank you for the fast response, you have an amazing company! This solution will work for what I am trying to do but I had a few additional questions.
    Can the HTML table be formatted/customized?
    Can certain columns be blocked from public view, such as the “email” column?
    Thanks again,

    Hello John,

    Although HTML table cannot be formatted but Yes it is possible to select which columns you want to be added in the HTML table listing report. 

    When you add a html report, you will be presented with a screen where you can choose which columns you want to be displayed in your report.

    Creating html table listing report:

    Clicking on Next, will advance you to another window to allow Selecting columns:

    Hope this answers your question.

    Thank you!
