    Does Jotform allow saving form and data entered to an on premise content management system?

    Asked by Whower on November 20, 2013 at 02:33 PM

    Would like to create forms that can be automatically saved to an on premise content management system.  Would need to be able to select a few fields of the form to populate index fields of the content management system to be able to retrieve it later.

    Hello. Thank you for posting your inquiry here.

    May I ask what CMS platform are you using? Is it a custom made CMS?

    For the meantime, there are 2 ways that you can get the submitted data prior to submission.

    Via Thank you URL method.

    Enable the Send HTTP POST data first then configure the Thank You URL redirect. See the exact guide here Send POST Data From JotForm Using PHP in Custom Thank You Page

    You need to create a custom server script PHP/ASP file and use that for the Thank You URL redirect.

    Via Webhook

    Similar to the Thank You URL method. However, you do not need to set the HTTP Post data that is optional for you. See this guide on How to Attach Webhooks on JotForm

    You need to attach your custom script as a Webhook that fetches the Form submitted data as JSON object and you can use that to feed it in your CMS database. It runs quietly during form submission.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you

    It's an ECM solution called Quillix Content manager.  It allows for scanning and indexing documents, managing documents and their life cycle, creating workflows etc.

    Hi,

    It would also help us provide you more appropriate suggestions if you can share to us the URL of your website where you intend to or used already the form.

    Have you already tried embedding the form to your  Quillix Content CMS website? We need to check more details from it so we give a more precise suggestions for you.

    --

    It might be that your CMS is similar to that of SharePoint -- we have an existing guide

    Adding-Form-To-SharePoint-Site

     

    We will wait for your update.

    Thanks.

    Quillix is a next generation Enterprise Content management system created by developers who created Optika in the 1990's.  Optika was purchased by Stellent, which was purchased by Oracle.  This is still sold by Oracle today.  It is not a CMS like Stellent but a platform focused on tools to scan source documents like invoices or manage office documents that should be associated with a specific account or transation.  SharePoint does offer much of this capability aside from the scanning capture and limited workflow.  The method to get forms into SharePoint would likely be helpful for our purposes.  

    A large number of universities and government agencies still process paper forms then scan and index them into a document imaging system.  If we can use Jotform to replace the paper forms and create an automated process to upload them into the Quillix solution or Oracle or Filnet etc... we can reduce or eliminate the labor intensive scanning and ind

    exing process of these legacy solutions.  

    cloudPWR is an independent ECM consulting company helping organizations replace or augement these legacy solutions.

    Hi,

    Our API System maybe suited for this instance. http://api.jotform.com which is part of our developers section: http://developers.jotform.com. You can build apps using our API and submit it to our App Sections.

    We can also possibly create workaround if just in case they support a few of our existing methods such as the webhook mentioned by my colleague. Can you please share to us the official website of Quillix Solution? I'm trying to search the web, but I can't seem to find the correct page. We'll try to check if we can find a few source from them.

    Thanks

    Quillix is a product of Prevalent Software Inc. out of Colorado.  It is a white label product so many resellers private label it.  That may be why you can't find much.   Their web site is:http://www.prevalentsoftwareinc.com/

    @Whower

    It seems they don't support http post request method to accept data connection from Jotform using Webhook or API. Perhaps I missed their documentation related to this.

    If they allow importing data from excel or csv file, you can download your form submissions results to these format and import it to your chosen CMS. How to Download Form Submissions to Excel/CSV/PDF

    You can also contact them regarding our API http://api.jotform.com. They might be able to come up with something for your request.

    If you have further questions or if you need further assistance, let us know here. Thanks!
