    is there a way to submit form data via a URL without using the form?

    Asked by Boley on November 30, 2011 at 06:19 PM

    Another service provider textmark(SMS gateway) can post data from text message containing my keyword, to any website so long as I can provide a URL and identify where the varible information should be placed in the URL.  The uri might look something like this: 

    http://submit.jotform.com/submit.php?form=13334247217&smsmessage=This%20is%the20%SMS

    Is there a way to submit data directly using a URL rather than manually filling out a form and pressing submit?

    Hi Boley,

    To my knowledge direct submission using link isn't possible in JotForm. You have to use forms in order to fully process submissions. If you like, you may try our prepopulating fields feature by just playing JotForm URL Parameters, please visit this link for more info.: http://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-the-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters

    Let us know if you have further questions. Thanks.
