    Can I define form questions in a file and upload it?

    Asked by Hans Petter Langtangen on December 01, 2013 at 01:42 PM

    I have a lot of multiplie choice questions in a database and want to select some of them at random, display in a form, and use the form as a kind of survey or exam. Is it possible to define the questions in a JotForm through an API or a file? I want my own program to read from the database and create the JotForm automatically.
