    CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) forms, Customized Reports and Long attributes

    Asked by waldson on April 20, 2015 at 04:50 PM



    I'm gonna point here my demands:


    I need to create customized forms to predispose CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) functions and customized reports. 

    To read functions and report I need create complex  queries to retrieve my data



    Is it possible to create customized reports with data inserted in Jotforms?



    Is it possible to have a data attribute in a form so long (at about 5000 characters)?


    Please case Jot form is not able to perform  these functions could you let me know which other tool I could use to do  that?


    Thank You.

    You can create forms to predispose CRUD.

    -When it comes to CreateOur form builder is easy to use, you can create forms in minutes just by dragging and dropping fields, we have many widgets and integrations which makes thins simple.

    We even have the "Designer feature", which allows you to style forms and see the changes in real time(http://www.jotform.com/help/300-Form-Designer-Tutorial-Let-s-create-fantastic-forms-).

    -Speaking about Read: I suppose you referring to reading and managing the submission's data.

    For that purpose you can create email notifications, check your data at the submissions page in your JotForm account, integrate with third part services like DropBox, Google Drive, etc.

    You can also download submissions as PDF, CSV, and Excel file

    - On regards of Update: There are to ways to update a form submission:

    1) At the submissions page, when you click on the "Edit" button:

    2) By adding the edit link in the email notification:

    - If you want to Delete, it has to be done at the Submissions page too, you will see the "Delete" button next to the edit one.

    - You can create visual reports with your forms submissions, and here is a guide to learn how to use the Visual Report Filters.

    Hope this helps, we are here to assist you.
