    Send submissions to Box.com integration

    Asked by OLNCMYWeb on October 30, 2014 at 06:29 AM

    I'm considering integrating one of my forms with box.com, but I have a couple of questions about it.

    1. All the normal data collected in a form, when it goes to box is it only in pdf format or can it be sent as excel or csv?

    2. Will the data still be saved in my jotform account for viewing and reports?

     

    Thanks,
    Becky

    Hi Becky,

    Here are my answers to your questions.

    1. All the normal data collected in a form, when it goes to box is it only in pdf format or can it be sent as excel or csv?

    Unfortunately, I'm unable to test it on my end because I don't have a Box.com account, but from my own knowledge, submissions uploaded to Dropbox.com and FTP servers are in PDF format, the attached files, if there are any, will also be uploaded there.

     

    2. Will the data still be saved in my jotform account for viewing and reports?

    I believe they will still be sent and be available to be viewed under Submissions and Reports in your JotForm account.

    You can always try to integrate and explore if the feature matches your need. If you need further assistance, feel free to contact us any time.

    Thank you.

    Thanks Charlie,

    Yes I could test it, but it's all about time right now. I was hoping for a definitive answer so I could just run with it.

    Either way, you confirmed my thoughts about it, so thank you for your response.

    Hi,

      The submissions should be sent as a PDF via the Box.com integration.  It works the same way as our Dropbox integration.

     

    Submissions are always sent to your JotForm account first then a copy is sent to associated integrations.  There is actually no way to bypass this.  Your submissions will be available for reports and such in your JotForm account in addition to the copies in your Box.com account.

    Let us know if you have any further questions and we will be happy to help.
