How to show submission reports in the CMS Console

  1. Create a report at JotForm. (For a sample report, please read how to create Grid Report.)
  2. Make a note of the shared Grid Report's URL (e.g. http://www.jotform.com/grid/13543556789)
  3. If necessary, create reports of other types such as HTML tables, visual reports, Excel spreadsheets, CSV reports and make a note of their respective URLs.
  4. In Orckestra CMS, in the Content perspective, select the JotForm Reports element and click Add JotForm Report on the toolbar.
  5. In the form that opens, specify the Title and one or more URLs in the respective fields for the reports you have created in steps 1 and 3.

Now that the report has been added, you can select it and click one of the "Report" buttons on the toolbar (for example, "Grid Report"). Grid, Table and Visual Reports will open in their views in the right part of the cosnole. Excel and CVS Reports are downloadable.

Note: If a report of a specific type is not available, you will see a message about that. In this case, you have to create a report, get its shared URL and specify it as described above.
