    'Fully Functioning'? - The Contest

    Asked by AristotleAxolotl on November 08, 2014 at 05:24 AM

    By fully functioning, does it mean that it has to actually perform the task? 

    For example, if I were to create an improvement on the student finance forms (my sister has had ALOT of issues with them recently) does it mean that the data has to be successfully submitted, (to me, e.g. my email) or successfully submitted to the actual thing?

    So, I think the question is, does the form only have to submit the data, for example, to an e-mail address for it to be considered fully functioning or submit to the actual site?

    Thanks for asking. You mentioned student finance forms but upon checking your account I was unable to find any such jotforms. But as to what is considered to be a fully functioning jotform submission, it would depend on how you have configured the jotform to deal with its submissions. By default, a jotform would send whatever was submitted to the email address you would have used upon signing up with us. However, it's also possible to have submissions sent to a URL, as explained in our blog post about Webhooks.

    The following guides may also help to clarify things:

    Please elaborate on what you wish to accomplish and we'll see how best we can help you to achieve it.

    My apologies. The title of this thread was apparently changed ("- The Contest" was added) while I was answering your query. "Fully functioning" just means that the jotform should send whatever information is submitted by a user to an email address. It wouldn't be necessary to setup a webhook or even an autoresponder. Of course, since it's a design contest, the jotform should look correct in both desktop and mobile devices.

    Nevertheless, if you need to discuss this further, please feel free to do so.
