    I can see the option to have uploads sent to ftp but nothing in reference to the actual csv files.

     

    Can this be done?

     

    Regards

    There are several ways to get CSV files of your submissions Daniel:

    Downloading them from Submissions Panel:

    How to Partially Download Form Submissions as Excel/CSV/PDF?

    Downloading the report over the link:

    How to create a CSV Report?

    There is however currently no direct way of getting the CSV file of submissions to your FTP folder each time a submission is made.

    What you could do is to actually set up your PHP server to accept the message from your form and then create the data as a CSV file on your server.

    This would be possible by utilizing webhooks and would also not require you to set up any FTP account nor access to that folder from our side.

    You can see how to set up WebHooks here: How to Setup Webhook with JotForm
