    Thank you for contacting us.

    Unfortunately, there is no such option available. However, you can get the submission data in XML format with RSS report.

    Alternatively to XML you might consider using Webhooks, to received the data in multipart/form-data content type.

    So you will get the data in JSON like format:

    Content-Disposition: form-data; name="rawRequest"
    {"q15_yourName":{"first":"John","last":"Doe"},"q16_yourEmail16":"john@example.com","q17_yourMessage":"Test message","event_id":"1429216890929_51056901109953_XSfAV5c"}

    You can also get the JSON data using JotForm API:
