    I am having a very difficult time knowing how to use the API to update control_matrix type questions.  I can update most other question types, but not that one.  I have posted something in the forum as a carry on to one of my other questions. I know the id's from the properties window, but with the matrix it is unclear what needs sent to the given submission to change its value.

    I have made a simple form to try and make it work on this one: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/52395673436969 

    The input ids on this are: #input_1_0_0, #input_1_0_1, #input_1_0_2, #input_1_0_3

    The choices are: Very Satisfied, Satisfied, Somewhat Satisfied, Not Satisfied

    THese choices seem to need to map to a certain input id, that is 1_0 should be position one on the form and matrix question 0 and then Very Satisfied would be 0, Satisfied 1, but how do I use the API to change these?

    The best way to get help with API related issues would be to contact our API support at api@jotform.com As far as I know, the proper ID would be MATRIXNAME #INPUT_0_0_0 to target a specific cell in the matrix.
