    How can I pull an RSS feed from a specific time period?

    Asked by marketvaults on December 30, 2011 at 11:57 PM

    Is there any way I can download an RSS feed from a specific time period - for example the last hour, or yesterday?  This would be a great help.  Thank you.

    Unfortunately there is no option to set a period for downloading submissions in the RSS feed. You may want to choose excel or csv instead.

    I am trying to automate my procedures, but JotForms offers very little to help.  I can't automate the excel or csv solution, can't run RSS for a specific time period, can't automatically delete old submissions.  ARGH!!!!   I am disappointed in how limited this product is.

    What I can suggest is to create a separate (3rd party) script that will parse the data depending on the submission period prefered.

    I will also submit a ticket to the development team for a request to add this feature.  Unfortunately, I cannot give you a timeframe to when this feature shall be implemented.  But if so, we'll let you know right away.

    Thanks and warm regards.
