    Can I get some guidance with using JotForm API?

    Asked by holmster on November 26, 2014 at 09:36 AM

    Hi,

    I was wondering if I could get some guidance on how the JotForm API works. I know you don't have built in inventory control yet, so I was wondering what I need to do to get started setting one up using the API. I have read the guide, but as my programming knowledge is at the beginner level, I was just trying to get some direction.

    I see you are looking for guidance with using our jotform api and that you said you have read up on our api documentation.

    Can you please explain to use more about what you are trying to do with our api?

    Also, what do you have so far? anything?

    We would need to know more about what you intend to do with it so that we can better guide you in the appropriate direction.

    I have not done anything yet. I was hoping to use in conjunction with some of the inventory widgets but I am not sure where to start (where I need to set up my inventory for API to draw from, etc)

    You can check the use cases to have a better idea of what you can do using the API.

    For example, you can use the API to create custom reports (in PHP or ASP.NET) with the data captured using the inventory widgets. You can even combine information from different forms in case you are using more than one form to capture this information.

    Have you already created a form or forms to capture this information? If so, could you provide us the links or names to get a better idea of what you're trying to do?

    Let us know if we can be of further assistance.
    Best Regards.
