    You can pass data from your JotForm form to your own website, and you'll need to have a PHP page on your website that will intercept this data and perform the actions you want. Please see the following guides that describe sending POST data from the form to your own PHP page for processing:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/213-Send-Submission-Data-via-POST-Method-Using-PHP-and-the-Thank-You-Settings

    The following guide describes the same thing on sending the POST data, but with how to redirect the output to a special page on JotForm that will show you the output of your POST data:

    (That thank you page that displays POST data is this: https://www.jotform.com/show-post-data/ )

    There are also other similar ways, for example, you can send submission data from your form through our Webhooks integration:
