    Hi There,

    We're a data integration firm and we work with many African countries in international development. We plan to use a tabular jotform to collect numerical data.

    Could you please tell us if it is possible to integrate the form directly with our platform so that the data from the form is directly ingested?


    Thank you,
    Dawit Kassa

    Hi there,

    We have an integration guide on how you can connect the form to your app.

    https://www.jotform.com/developers/integrations/#overview

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Hi Lorenz, thanks for the quick reply. So to be absolutely sure, will I be able to pull data from a Jotform form to my platform directly through an integration? Is this an API? Is it well documented? Is (API) integration free of charge or available for a fee?


    Thank you,

    Dawit

    Thanks, Lorenz, for your quick reply.

    To be absolutely sure:

    1. Will I be able to pull data from a Jotform form to my platform/database directly through an integration?
    2. Is this an API integration or else?
    3. Is the (API) well documented and ready for use?
    4. Is the integration service available for free?

    Thank you again,

    Dawit

    Hi,

    You need to check the guide that my colleague provided. You can contact our API team for more information about API integration. https://api.jotform.com/docs/

    As for integration requests, normally, we forward the request to our developers. Please let us know the website and what you want to achieve with the form and we can create an integration request.

    As for forwarding data to another app, yes, that is possible. Here's an example: https://www.jotform.com/help/228-how-to-integrate-forms-with-google-sheets/. All form submissions are going to the Google Spreadsheet if you added it into your form.

    Thanks Vincent.

    Do you know if Jotforms support multiple languages at the same time? We have a form in English, and we'd like to add Amharic and Oromifa (official languages of Ethiopia) as alternative languages in the same form.


    Thank you,

    Dawit

    Hi Roneet, thanks for the above. I've a few more questions. Could you please help me?

    1. Is it possible to add a row at the bottom of a column of responses to show their total? Please see here the data collection form we have developed.
    2. Is it possible for an admin to review for quality and approve new survey responses before they are consolidated in the main database?
    3. Is it possible to set up automated reminders in Jotform so that respondents receive periodic reminders to complete the survey? Our surveys are completed monthly.

    Thank you again.
