How to Integrate Jotform With Other Apps Through Make

March 20, 2024

Make is a no-code automation development platform that makes it easy to visualize and create automation. You can connect Jotform to other apps by creating a custom workflow with Make.

With Jotform integration through Make, you can configure the following Triggers and Actions.

  • Trigger:
    • Watch for submission — This trigger works when a new submission comes in, which fires the scenario automatically.
  • Actions:
    • Create a New Form — Add new forms with questions, properties, and email settings.
    • List Form Questions List all questions of a specific form.
    • Add Questions to Form — Adds questions to the specified form.
    • Get Form Submissions — Get all submissions of the specified form. 
    • Get User Submissions — Get all submissions of the user’s account.
    • Get Monthly User Usage — Get the number of form submissions received this month. Also, get the number of SSL form submissions, payment form submissions, and upload space used by the user.
    • Make an API Call — Performs an arbitrary API call to the endpoints listed in Jotform API Documentation.

Getting the Jotform API

To connect your Jotform account to Make, you must first obtain the API key from your Jotform account. Full Access permission is required to use Jotform modules in Make that write data on your account. For example, Create a New Form and Add Questions to a Form.

Activating your scenario

That could be a lot of steps, but you’re now ready to start the integration. To activate, you need to go back by clicking the back arrow at the top-left side of the flow, and on the Diagram tab, toggle the On/Off button. Ensure it says On, and that’s it!

Triggering the Integration From Jotform Tables

The Watch for Submissions trigger is set up to create a webhook in the form. You can use this webhook to manually trigger the integration in the Jotform Tables of the selected form. To trigger, add an action button column in Jotform Tables to Send Data to Other Apps.
