I am running a club website and we have booking forms for Events. we have in the past listed all the names of the people that have book for a particular Event
Joe Bloggs Mary Blogs
Fred Flintstone Alma Flinstone
Barney Rubble AN Other
Can I do this with JotForm in WordPress?
We use Gravity Forms at the moment in WordPress

If I understand your requirement correctly, you want to display submission list in your webpage but just few columns. Is that correct?
Yes it is possible to achieve. You can create a HTML Table Listing report and embed this report in your webpage. Here are the steps:
1. Click on "My Forms" menu.
2. Select the form for which you want to create a report
3. Click on "Report" button and then click "Add New Report"
4. Click on the "HTML Table Listing" and then click on "Next" button"
5. In the next window you will see the list of columns, please select the columns which you want to display in your webpage and click "Next":
6. Now you will get your report URL and embed URL. This embed code can be used to embed this report in your webpage:
Hope this helps you.
Do get back to us if you have any questions.

Thanks for replying so promptly
Yes that is basically what I want to do but, without any manual input. The GravityForms does all this automatically with a bit of shortcode like this [directory form="99" lightboxsettings="images" titleshow="false"] this updates immediately each time someone books for the Event. You have probably guessed that "99" is the form .ID.
I have not tried this yet, but the impression I get is that it is all done manually... not what I want I'm afraid.
I am keen to use the Jotform as it has better formatting i.e. font size, colour, etc.
I am dealing with the 'Older Generation' so the form has to be easily read.

You will actually do the report just once. Any succeeding submission will be visible from the report once it is embedded. But unless you will modify the report to show/hide some other fields from your form. That needs to be done manually.
You may also try our Submission View App: http://apps.jotform.com/app/submission_view. This allows you to style the view including the sizes and colors. BUT still, this requires a manual labor and a little knowledge with HTML.

Thanks for all your prompt attention and help, very impressed indeed.
