How to Send Data to Other Apps in Jotform Tables

February 22, 2024

With Jotform’s Action Buttons, you can manually send your form data to other apps. It’s helpful when your form data go through a series of reviews before they are sent to 3rd party app. With just a click of a button, your form data is sent to the other app in no time.

First off, you have to open your Jotform Tables and do the following steps:

  1. Add a new column by clicking the +Add button at the end of your form’s Jotform Tables.
