How to Create an HTML Table Listing Report

How to Create an HTML Table Listing Report

Would you like to share a nice table-based submission report? Check out the HTML Table Listing.

The report can be shared using its direct link or by embedding it on your website. The latter may be useful if you want to share the submitted data between your users.

Let's start creating your first HTML Table Listing Report.

  1. Go to the My Forms page.
  2. Select the form you want to generate a report from.
  3. Click the Reports menu.
  4. Then click Add New Report.
    My Forms Reports Menu
    My Forms Reports Menu
  5. Select HTML Table Listing on the Create a new report modal pop-up.
    Create New Html Report
    Create New Html Report
  6. Next will be the HTML Table Listing Report setup page, which is divided into 3 sections.
    Create Html Report Select Fields
    Create Html Report Select Fields
    1. Report Name - type the name of the report that will be shown under the Reports menu on the My Forms page.
    2. Fields - include or exclude fields and other information such as Submission ID, Submission Date, or IP address.
    3. Report Configurations - enable or disable additional report settings to your preference.
      • Password protection - an optional but added layer of security.
      • Display photo instead of a link - enable this if you want to show the images uploaded on your form instead of just showing them as a link.
      • Display images in a modal window - when someone clicks on an image in the table, it will be presented as a modal popup (or a lightbox as shown below).
      • Show edit URLs - with this enabled, a new column will be added to the table that will show a link to edit the respective submission.

    Click the Create button at the bottom to finish the setup.

  7. After clicking the Create button, you will be prompted that the HTML Table Listing Report is ready. On the same pop-up, you will see the link to the HTML Table Listing Report that you created and a button to copy that link. (a)  There is also the iframe embed code that you can copy to embed the report to your website. (b)  The Open Report button will open the report on a new browser tab. (c)
    Create Html Report Ready
    Create Html Report Ready

    Click the close (X) icon at the top-right corner to close the pop-up.

    Hi there,

    There was a comment from a couple years back and I'm wondering if there's been any update on it.

    "The most unbelievably useful feature you could provide to improve JF is the ability to be able to format the HTML table in terms of colours and fonts. The current version is fine for back of house but simply doesn't fit our brand and style at all (which utilises Google web fonts)."

    Would be great to customize field colours and fonts, along with column widths as well.

    Is there a limit on how many entries this report will display? I have over 6,000 entries and they are not all included in this report. I would like a search feature and a pagination feature to break up the forms with a significant amount of entries.

  • tabernacleseminary

    After generating the report in html. I am not able to share the table using the link. I seem to be the only person who is able to view the report but only if I am logged in to Jotform. Otherwise I receive an error that says "Not authorized to view" or something like that.

    What is the problem?

  • eatballard

    Hello. Has any formatting capability be introduced for these table reports? We need some recommendations of tools we can send submissions to for a more advanced way of presenting the results. Maybe using Zapier as interface. Can you help? Thank you!

  • Mower

    We are looking into using your form builder to let the salesman enter the orders and select the components that are included in the order to use as a display in the shop.
    Salesman answers pertinent questions and completes the form.
    Report is made on a recurring basis (automatic) and the screen in the shop updates the orders at that time.
    When an order incurs a completed step, we need the information in the shop to be editable as in "completed".
    What would be the best export for the information to then be used for another purpose such as this.?

  • adminassist

    The link to the example result doesn't work.

  • ClassicFlights

    This is awesome.
    I wish to make one of my pages which is a table widget print out landscape... rather than profile because I want to present this report with all the type in the comments box...
    This particular comment box will display nicely in the submissions page but not in the report page....
    I need to know the right code to expand the columns? or is there a landscape print option for must one page within the report?

    Is it possible to set up the embedded table so that it only shows data relevant to the user? I would like a work log system where trainees can view their approved cases and supervisors can see their own cases they have approved.

    I set this up and it appeared to work great on my computer, but then it didn't work for other people at our event - it gave an error "you're not authorized" to view the bids. Maybe they have to be logged in? It would be great to include that information on this page.

  • OldBuckAirfield

    Feature Request - The ability to change fonts/ colours of the table would be fabulously useful, as well as being able to order submissions based on data entered, rather than just by submission date

  • BOUVIER Jean Pierre

    Is it possible to sort a table before display ??


  • BRTC

    That link does not answer my question.

  • BRTC

    Is there a limit to the number of form entries/records JotForm will store? How far back will JotForm store report results?

  • cosourcingrecruitmenttracker

    Hi How can i disable the link downloading instead of downloading it just need to view the attach pdf file or doc file in the form?

  • buchangrant

    Is the html report a snapshot of the data or a dynamic report? So if I create a report and then more orders are placed after its creation, will they show up on the report?

  • genierose

    I want to make a form like the comment box that I am using right now to make my comment to you. I can see everyone else's comment and there is even a place for an answer.

  • lagedor

    The iFrame of my report I embedded on my website display's only parts of my table. How can I create a report that displays a full listing?

    How can I customize the html table?

  • welsweb

    It looks funny for longer text area and text box content to be centered instead of left aligned. Can I change that style somehow?

  • fivetownhoopdreams

    Thank you!! This is what I needed!!
