What's Cooking in the JotForm Kitchen

August 02, 2013
Hello everyone! If you are a fan of Jeanette's weekly newsletter you probably already know that the JotForm Team has been kind of silent in the last month. Well, we have been busy improving our API and building real apps on top of it. 


Apps

We are not ready to release these apps. They are still in the works. I just wanted to share some of them with you. If you are interested in being a beta tester for an app post a comment and your wish shall come true.


Android App: Browse your submissions in your Android phone and get instant notifications.

jotform android app



Mysql Export: Get Mysql export of your data for any form. 

jotform mysql output


iPhone App: A brand new iPhone App that is prettier and faster than the old one. 

jotform iphone app



Poll: Create polls for your websites. With beautiful reporting for the poll results. 

poll tool from jotform


Google Contacts: Integrate your JotForm forms with Google Contacts


Submaster: A new way to review your submissions. Charts and all. 



Daily Digest Email: Get a daily email with all of the submissions you received in the past day.



Browse Your Uploads: Browse all of your uploaded files in a gallery.


Download All Files: Download all of your uploaded files to your computer with a single click of a button. 

Combine Your Forms: Merge submission data from multiple forms in a single CSV file.

Survey Helper: Process results for a survey to determine the percentages.

Answer Comparator: Compare current entries to old submissions when filling in form.

Populate Form: Take any form and allow users to create urls with GET vars to populate any field without searching through the markup

Import Excel: Import data from excel files to your form submissions.

Submissions Widget: Create custom web widgets for your submissions. Edit an HTML template to make your submission data to look the way you want it. 

We are going to release these apps in the coming weeks. If you'd like to be an early beta tester for one of the apps post in the comments below. 


What's Next

More Apps. Our team will continue building apps this month as well. We  are basically dogfooding our API to make sure it works well. Want an app? Post it in the comments.  

JotForm API Competition. We are going to launch a competition for developers to build apps using JotForm API. We hope to get many useful apps for JotForm users this way. There are going to be cash prices so if you know any programmers let them know about it. Do you have any app ideas you wish existed? Post in the comments below and we will make sure it would be suggested in the competition. 

JotForm Apps. After the competition we are going to launch an App Store for JotForm Apps. You will be able to install mobile apps, setup integrations with 3rd party services or use services directly in the App Store. 

JotForm Community shared almost 3000 form templates. We hope the same will happen with JotForm Apps. We hope that many people in the community will make apps or get their vendors to implement integration with JotForm.  

We need your help: If you have an app idea post it in the comments. OR if you would like to be a beta tester for one of the apps above, again, let us know in the comments. 

Exciting times!

Great! Please make sure to include which apps you want to be a beta tester for.

Most apps are not complete. We will contact you when the app you'd like to use becomes available.

Thanks!


   
Rahul (August 02, 2013 at 11:52 AM)

Hi ,

Thank a lot for all your Work to make our work much productive and faster.

I would like to suggest the inclusion of the option to edit and add comment and add up new extra fields and edit submission in Jotform Table Report link.this must be enabled with Auto save option and this link can be shared easily.So this helps us follow up with all customer in form Submissions and note down their reviews simultaneously and get auto updated when we edit or change the entry in the links.

This option is provided in CSV report , But such changes cannot be made in the link.only those changes made in Google Drive submissions are visible in this.

So , a link with option to edit the submission online would be great in overall.

I would also like to suggest "Zendesk Integration" which will enter tickets directly into Zendesk with custom field/tag mapping.

And for the Android app, please include the ability to ignore notifications for submissions from certain folder/form.

Hello!

I'd love to be a beta tester for all of the apps, if possible! I'm so pumped!

There is a feature or app I would like. When downloading submissions to Excel, you can control which fields go to which cells. That'd be AWESOME!

Thanks,

To add on to my last post, another great feature would be an integration with Google Maps. For example, if a client fills out the address box, then Google Maps will find the address and make sure it is a valid address so that you won't receive submissions with invalid mailing addresses. This would help a BUNCH!

bhanukaran (August 07, 2013 at 02:58 AM)

I want to be a beta tester. My first preference would be android app and also the mysql export.

New feature request: If you can store the edit entry links in the same database along with the entry. That will be great. This will help us refer and re-share the edit entry link with the users in the case of contests or campaigns.

I'd like to test the MySQL export.

As a side note, it would be nice to see the form exports include the Recipient Email list.


   
MEGSSS (August 08, 2013 at 10:15 PM)

I would like an app that exports chosen submissions (we could exclude certain individual submissions) and only specific chosen information (e-mail, address) to a google maps setup, similar to a report that could be published online. The idea would be that our student's families who would like to carpool could find folks on their own without our involvement.

jteamer (August 11, 2013 at 11:53 AM)

I have another request feature.

Maybe there can be a way to label submissions, like "Cancelled" or "Accepted" or "Pending", etc. And then when you export it, the label would be included in the excel spreadsheet or pdf. This would be very helpful to us.


   
bizdata (August 11, 2013 at 01:25 PM)

Keep up the good work, folks. Do you have a countdown app that you can integrate with an event registration form? Reason 0- to learn how many more spaces are left for an event/class/etc. Thanks.

I'm happy to beta test any/all of the apps (except the android one since I don't have that platform).

Also, I'd love to see an app that let's me take the forms portable so that the app holds the data until I reach a wifi spot and it can upload all of the form submissions at once.
