    Can the Jotform API handle data delivered from another API to create a submission from that data

    Asked by markashton on January 20, 2014 at 05:34 PM

    Hi,

    I have submission data in another application ... I would like to send it to a PHP page that passes it to the Jot from API and creates an automatic submission.

    First question ... possible ... looking at the API I see no evidence of this.

    Thanks mark

    Hi Mark,

    I am sure you are already familiar on how to send the form's submission data to PHP page (as described on this guide).

    However, I am having a challenge also on how to achieved the auto submission using API.

    I suggest you send your question instead to the API team at api@jotform.com . They are better qualified to provde the solution you require.

    Please inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks!

    Hi Jonathan,

    There's no team there ... or if there is ... it is an unmanned email address.

    Are they away on holiday?

    Like waiting for paint to dry ...

    Any chance you can ask someone the answer to this most fundamental of questions.

    I'd be most grateful

    Your nemesis, mark ;-)

    Hello Mark. I believe that our Dev Team work on some new amazing improvements and features :)

    It is definitely possible to do the form submissions through API, you need to look into '/form - POST /form/{id}/submissions' section:

    http://api.jotform.com/docs/#post-form-id-submissions

    I do not think that we have some examples to show, but the API is ready to accept submissions.
