    [HTTP Methods: GET vs. POST] Can I use GET method with JotForm?

    Asked by wdsdouglas on September 23, 2014 at 05:52 PM


    After extensive forum searches... I've found no case studies that have used the GET method in Jotform. I've found the very well laid out POST method user guide, and a few posts stating JotForm's Method of choice is POST.

    Is there a way to customize the form and use the GET method? I've tried the simple step of using the source code of the form and changing the form method from POST to GET, however that did not work. (I'm guessing JotForm has disabled this at the server level)

    My need is to pass the variables through the URL string. Is there any possible way to do that with JotForm?

    Thanks in advance,
