    Is it possible to create form data feeding?

    Asked by Jesus Mendez  on April 25, 2016 at 03:29 PM

    I would like to ask you if it's possible to feed these forms with data generated at our place as well as being able to collect data generated by the form to our place?

    What you could do is to generate custom URL links that will populate your forms, you can check more in this link: https://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters

    But on the other hand, you will have to submit those forms. I'm not sure what is the workflow of your form and that external place that you mentioned?

    Collecting submitted data you could do by extracting XML that you can parse to get data. To generate XML from your form please follow:

    1. Go to your forms section.

    2. Click on your form and click Reports:

    3. And select RSS Listing:

    Again, you will have to create your custom XML parser to generate data from XML created.

    Hope it helps.

    Please let me know if you have further questions.
