    Hi,

    We are developing an application which require administrators  to create forms and assign to members. Members will fill in and sent back.

    JotForm is perfect for our scenario but we are bit concerned as we need the data in our database. I have seen an option were we can download the source (html, css and javascript). I just wanted to check wheather we are allowed to modify the html downloaded from JotForm ? ( means can I change the form post location to my url so our system will get the data? )

    Thanks & Regards,

    Siya

    Hi Siya,

    You can use of Send Post data feature to transmit information submitted in the form to your database.


    To see how Send Post works:

    1. Create a "test.php" on your site and put this code in it:

    <? print_r($_POST); ?>

    2. Go to "Setup & Embed" -> "Thank You" -> "Custom URL" and enter http://domain.com/test.php
    3. Enable the "Send Post Data" (Preferences -> Advanced Settings)
    4. Save and submit your form.

    Hope this helps, let us know if you have questions.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the quick response. This should work.

    btw is there any licensing restrictions on copying the html of the form generated and host it on our server?

    Regards,

    Siya

    Hi Siya,

    You are free to download the full source code including the javascript files of the form you have created  then  modify it according to your needs and host it on your server. 

    Cheers!
