I'd like to intercept the Jotform submit

    Hello All

    Just starting with Jotform so maybe this is obvious but I haven't been able to find anything in the forum.

    If I set up a standard form that submits data to Jotform for retrieval later can I intercept the submit event and do other stuff (such as call my own web service) before the data is pushed to Jotform's servers? I don't need to modify the data itself (although that might also be useful). I just want to make sure that, for every Jotform submit, a certain task is carried out.

    I think one way would be to host the form on our site and modify the code but I would rather not go down that route if there's an easier way.

    Hi @ UrbaneGeek,

    Thank you for contacting Jotform Support.

    Unfortunately, as soon as a customer or client submits a form, a submission will be sent to your Jotform account.

    But we do have an feature called Approval that gives you the option to approve or reject or request more information from a user or client. Please take a look at this guide:

    Please contact us for any further questions.

    Happy Holidays!

    Best Regards,
