    Thank you for contacting us. As far as what I can understand, are you looking for a feature that display the current database results on realtime that you can show on the webpage? and then have the ability to approve or disapprove the submission before the latest entries show up on your webpage in some kind of table result? Is this correct?

    If this is not what you are inquiring about, are you looking to approve or disapprove a form made by your employees before you embed on your website? If that is the case, you may add the email address of the ones assigned to build the forms and add them as "Sub User". You can access this via your Account settings

    When adding sub users, you have to ability to share your forms and assign permission to view only or have edit permissions. This way you have the ability to monitor the progress of the forms that they create whether you disapprove or approve it is up to you.

     

    For more information, please refer to our user guide How to Share Forms with a Sub-Account User. Please let us know if this is the ones you are inquiring about or not. Thank you

    There are different ways you can go about doing this. One way is to share a report on the site, by embedding it, this may need to have the page refreshed to view the updates. 

     

    You can create the reports by selecting the form in question, thenclick on Reports and Add New Report

    https://cms.jotform.com/uploads/image_upload/image_upload/global/23032_addreport.png

    You can use the HTML Table Listing Report to achieve this:

    Example Form:

    As you can see, once you generate the report, the wizard will provide you the iframe code to embed on your website.

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

    How do we approve the comments submitted by visitors to the website
    before the comments are visible to everyone. And how can you delete a
    comment from the displayed list on the website page at a later date?

    How to approve comments before they are displayed. That is the $64,000 question! This will require some thought to see what workarounds we can devise. Our Disqus widget might fit the bill but that's not one of the widgets with which I'm familiar. Disqus does provide the ability to moderate comments though.
