RSS titles all the same

    Asked on August 20, 2011 at 04:48 AM

    How can you get RSS feeds to show the relevant form title - in most rss readers the title of the feed is always Jotform RSS Feed.

    Is there any way the feed can be the title of the form or an element of a form?

    Thanks in advance

    To be certain that the development team will be doing the correct modifications on the RSS feed.  Can you confirm if the screenshot below is the said issue?

    We will wait for your response.

    hi Liyam

    yes - this is correct, each feed needs to be identifyable in its own right.

    Hello Kevin,

    The report ticket has been tagged as important. One of our developers are already looking into it.

    May I know which reader you are using to subscribe to your form RSS report? I am not quite sure but I think RSS readers should be able to change the name for the rss subscription, just like with Google Reader.

     

     

    This should work as  a temporary solution until our developers find a way to implement what you're asking.

    Hi 

    This is working through the "mini app" from the app store, this app connects to news feeds and allows the car - a mini fitted with the mini media pack to read news feeds.

    All the RSS feeds from jotform are all the same feed title.

    I'm having the same problem. I'm trying to embed the results in a Google site and I'm getting just "NAME OF FORM: SUBMISSION DATE" instead of what I want (the name of the person who submitted). Would appreciate hearing if this problem has been solved.

    @bmpskier

    Your issue isn't exactly the same as the original poster's. What kevinreynolds wanted was to have the actual RSS report to be named differently when added to an RSS reader. Right now, it's always "JotForm Submissions" by default, although in most RSS readers, it is possible to change the name as it is added.

    Your concern is an entirely different matter, because what you want to be able to customize is the name of the RSS report entries, which are given a simple title "name of form: submission date". This is actually not a bug nor an error. It is just how entries are named.

    I will add your input to the ticket attached to this request. We will see what our developers can do about it. You will be notified of any updates regarding your request.

    Thanks.
