    How do I post form results onto a website automatically?

    Asked by campguy on September 17, 2010 at 01:45 AM

    I absolutely love your service.  It is head and shoulders above all the other options.  

    One thing that would really help us, though, is if there was a way to have peoples' form results post to another page.  I realize this is an unusual request as most forms have personal information.  However, we have one form where our staff fill out the form to let the public know about job openings and volunteer opportunities.  As it is now, I have to copy and paste the information from the email that comes to me onto our website each time.  Is there a way to have the form results post on another page which we could also iframe into our website?

    Yes, you can do this using Reports:

    1. Select your form on My Forms page and then click on Reports.

    2. Click on "Add New Report" and choose "Grid Listing" or "HTML Table Listing" option.

    3. Follow the wizard and copy the HTML code provided at the last page.

    4. Paste this code to your web site.

    Is it possible that each form has a unique and simple ID for the applicants filling out the form to be recognized by ? The Form ID that appears after submission is very long and complicated like 66828891101101 .

    We want to create reports so that the results can be viewed online but at the same time maintatin privacy of all those applyinfg. Thus having a simple unique ID like WX001 (and then the series continue in that order) would be very helpful and convenient. Our form is already online and submissions are coming in .Waiting for your reply. 


    Thanks !

    Unfortunately, there is no such incremental and simple ID generation for submissions available on JotForm. I added your request to our feature requests list.

    We can add this as a feature request and implement it. However this thread was opened by someone else on an unrelated topic. Please open a new forum thread and describe the problem there. Then we will turn that thread into a feature request.
