    Is there any way to get "Report Page" URLs from a Form Page URL?

    Imagine a system which receive the URL to a Form and is capable of returning the URLs for 'grid report', 'visual report' etc.

    Is this doable in any way?

    I'm not sure if I understand exactly what you're trying to do. Would you care to provide more details?

    I'm representing an open source cms project and we are looking into ways to integrate your service in the most user friendly way. Right now we have the "insert JotForm" boiled down to the steps "Insert a JotForm, specify the form URL" and we are able to embed, iframe etc, the form.

    As a convinience we have also created a small app where users can specify URL to reports for their forms (like ).

    Right now we would require the user to insert a JotForm (specifying a form url) to be shown on the public website and then register reports (specifying urls to the different reports) to be shown inside the cms admin ui. Counting clicks/user actions that require a lot of clicking and jumping back and forth between your and our systems, bopying URL's etc.

    I'd like to get to a situation where users can simply provide the url to their public form (and some JotForm login/identification I guess) and we can then infer/query for the report URL's so the user - after registering the form - will have it running and access to the reports.

    Stuff like that would enable us to push JotForms as a standard/popular way to work with forms in our CMS. The UX component is pretty important here. The more we can query automatically, the less complicated the user experience will be.

    Tthe reports are not automatically generated in every form, it requires the initiation of the user so that's the only time that the report page can be generated, although, the submissions page are automatic and are relevant to the form ID. 

    Moreover, I believe this is beyond the technicalities that us support staff can do.. I will pass on this to our development team and let them handle this. 

    Thanks for your patience.
