    JotForm API supports JSONP requests, so I think that using our API you'll  to get  form submissions data using AJAX

    Please check our API documentation and if you need further help let us know

    @Noitidart

    1. Yes, you should get email notifications. Make sure you have correct email recipients on your form notifications. Check this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/41-Finding-out-E-mail-Address-used-for-submission-notifications

    2. No, people who use your contact form are NOT required to signup. They can fill and submit your form directly on their browser.

    Hope this information helps. Cheers!

    Notification Email is the email you receive when someone fills out your form. Notification Email has two versions which is the HTML Mode and Text Mode. If you want to receive the email as a "text", choose the Text Mode

    Click "Use Text E-Mail" button to switch to Text Mode while creating your notification email settings:

     

    Let us know if you need any further assistance using this function.

    Actually all you want to know is how to get the submitted data using AJAX. Like I said above, you must revise our API documentation in order to make it to work

    However, if all that you need is to show submission data that were sent by your users in your webpage, you can also embed a grid or table report

    No I don't need to show a grid at all lol they are personal messages being
    sent to me, but I appreciate your time very much to answer this! :)
