    License activation form

    Asked by itechnosoft on July 30, 2014 at 01:31 PM

    Dear Team

    We would like to create a license activation form. For each license we have a unique number assigned, once the user submits the unique number we want to send him the license key associated to his unique number.

    Is this possible with Jotform. The excel sheet would look like this:

    Product: A Unique No: 123456-112222 Serial Key: XTT-BYBB

    Product: AB Unique No: 132446-118988 Serial Key: BXM-FTY

    The form will look like:

    Name:

    Email:

    Product:

    Unique No:

    Submit.

    Based on the product, unique number above say if he submitted 132446-118988, he will receive the serial key: BXM-FTY

    If the product is wrong then it would give user the message, invalid product name and similarly for the unique number.

    Please let me know.

    Cheers

    M

    Thank you for contacting us.

    There is a conditional logic on forms option:

    Smart Forms Using Conditional Logic

    However, it does not support integration with remote databases. I think that it will not work if you have many unique serial/license keys. On the other hand, if there are only several serial/license keys it should do. 

    It is most likely that you will need a custom solution based on a form Post Data option:

    - How to Setup Webhook with JotForm

    - How to Post Submission Data to Thank You Page

    So that the form will forward the data to your custom script for the license activation and email tasks.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

    Hi Mike

    Thank you for your response.

    What would be the easiest way to implement a solution closer to this through Jotforms alone?

    Hi,

    As our colleague Mike_T already mentioned you will need the ff:

    How to Setup Webhook with JotForm

    How to Post Submission Data to Thank You Page

    These are all still within the form scope.

    The only thing that is outside JotForm is the custom script for the license activation and email tasks.

    If you check the webhooks samples the #1 and #3 sample is almost similar to what you will need.

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks.
