What is Post Data?
Post Data pushes a copy of the record data out of iFormBuilder to a user-defined web page (while maintaining the original record on the iFormBuilder database).
This action takes place every time a new record is successfully uploaded to the server, or an existing record is updated.
How do I create a Post Data endpoint?
To create an endpoint, please follow the instructions located HERE.
What is Trigger Post Processing?
Trigger Post Processing allows you to re-run data to your Post Endpoints. This can be useful if data did not make it successfully to the endpoint or if a new endpoint has been set up after data collection.
PLEASE NOTE: You are only allowed 5 Post Process Triggers within a 24-hour period per Server. If the last trigger post process has been more than 24 hours, it will restart the allotment.
