    Using JotForm for a public petition, how can I display select fields of people who've signed?

    Asked by Brett  on March 03, 2015 at 02:11 PM


    I've searched the web for some direction on this but haven't found anything yet. I'm wondering if I can easily simulate the online petition form behavior of sites like ipetition.com and moveon.org with JotForm. I will already be asking a base of users to fill out a customized JotForm form for membership in a mailing list, but I also would like to let them check a box to indicate support for a related petition, rather than ask them to visit and fill in info for a petition hosted at a different website. The only issue is, I don't see any way to show the number of signers and info (such as their first name, last initial, and town) about those who've signed the petition, info that would be shown if I selected a petition hosting site instead.

    Does JotForm offer anything like this to assist this use case?

    Hello Brett,

    I understand that you want to show the number of signers and other information along with the petition. You can achieve this requirement by generating a report and embed the report on your JotForm. 

    Once you have generated the reported, you can embed on the JotForm itself using iframe embed widget or you can copy the iframe embed code to display on your website.

    You can also display the number of submissions on your JotForm by using our Submissions Counter widget.

    Hope this information helps!
