    How can I search my site with criteria?

    Asked by SaltStudio on August 27, 2014 at 07:28 AM


    I created a form with search criteria, named: Buy a business.

    I want to the "form" the search the site (for businesses that are available to buy) when the search button is clicked.

    The site should then show the search results and not send an e-mail to me.

    The client needs to view the results immediately.

    Is this possible?


    Kind Regards

    Hi Yvonne,

    Sorry but that's not possible with Jotform. That's out of Jotform scope, unfortunately. You can't use Jotform in such way.

    However, there's a similar function that you might want to try. Though this isn't going to perform a search within your site, instead it will search within your form submissions data. You can achieve this by creating a Grid Listing Report. http://www.jotform.com/help/105-Grid-Listing

    If you have any other questions or concerns, please let us know here.

    Thank you!
