I have been exceeding my API limit almost every day. How do I know how many API's I need to upgrade to?

    According to our last question, our forms have too many widgets that use API and our forms keep getting shut down. If I need to upgrade, I would like to know how many I should upgrade too based on our current form use. 

     

    Also, what does API stand for?

    API (application program interface) is a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications. The API specifies how software components should interact and APIs are used when programming graphical user interface (GUI) components.

    The API limits are reset everyday midnight EST. As you check the usage section of the account in API documentation,  you can find the limit remaining of your account by accessing the URL:

    https://api.jotform.com/user/usage?apiKey=YOURAPIKEY

    As per the plan that you are subscribed to (Premium), you are allowed up to 10,000 API calls in a day.

    Hope this information helps!
