August 4, 2022

Send Post Data is a feature that allows you to post form data to the destination URL. You can use https://www.jotform.com/show-post-data/ as the destination URL to view the submission as POST data.

Here’s how to set it up:

  1. Go to the Settings tab in the Form Builder.
  2. Click the Show More Options button.

  3. Enter https://www.jotform.com/show-post-data/ as the destination URL.

  1. Send a test entry to your form.

You should be able to see POST data variables along with the preformatted PHP codes. Here’s a demo form to see it in action: https://www.jotform.com/213185545698973

Sample result:

Data Submitted:
Array (     [submission_id] => 5264586364403223222     [formID] => 213185545698973     [ip] => 10.146.210.44     [name] => Array         (             [0] => Jane             [1] => Doe         )     [email] => jane.doe@jotform.com     [message] => Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur. )
PHP Code:
$_POST['submission_id'];
$_POST['formID'];
$_POST['ip'];
$_POST['name']['0'];$_POST['name']['1'];
$_POST['email'];
$_POST['message'];
