    I can't find any documentation for this feature. What does it do? How does it pass FB user info to me?

    The Facebook integration is for JotForm users who would like their forms to automatically collect the data from the form user's Facebook page.

    Example, instead of creating a name, birth date, and address fields in your form, you can have the form user login to his facebook account instead and then as soon as the form gets submitted, the name and address details from the user's Facebook account will be included in the form submission.  You will also have options on what data to collect from the user's Facebook account.

    As for the documentation, I'll work on that one to have one added on the user guide.

    Thanks for the explanation. Can you explain a little further how this works in light of FB privacy settings and profile incompleteness? What if the FB user's profile information is incomplete or private? 

    I briefly experimented with the FB integration, and it looks like it will not pre-populate your form fields, correct? E.g., it won't get the FB user's name and address from FB and map it right to the appropriate form fields so they don't need to be typed in. The FB integration just provides the form owner with the FB user's public profile info through an email and the JotForm backend. Is that accurate?

    Once the user logs into the Facebook, the integration is able to pull the following info from the Facebook users account.

    First Name,   
    Last Name
    Profile Picture





    about me



    current location


    IF the facebook user has that information filled in, in his/her profile. This data will be stored in your forms submissions and sent in any email notifications you get from the form.


    Hope that helps.
