    Is there a way to use data from a form to automatically update a web widget?

    Is there a way to use data from a form to automatically update a web widget like a fundraising thermometer and list of names?

    Unfortunately, from the way how the widget works, I don't think that is possible. 

    We have an app that can read your form data, the JotPayment app: http://jotpayments.jotform.io/, but it's currently not embeddable and doesn't show the payors. But let me request this to our developers. Maybe they can enhance the app or create a new one. We'll notify you in this thread for updates. Unfortunately, no guaranteed timeframe.

    Thank you!

    You can use the JotForm API or webhooks to get the data submitted to your forms and then create such a widget yourself.

    Thanks aytekin,

    I ended up using Zapier to connect the data to a google docs and embedded the google doc for the list of names.

    Does anyone have any ideas how I can do something similar for a thermometer graph?
