Based off of customer's needs for calling to data outside of iForm within the iForm app, we are working on a brand new element! The HTTP Request element requires wifi or cellular connection and will query APIs and store results as a JSON object. The data will be able to be parsed out into separate elements as needed. This would allow for live, current data to be used in a form. Scenarios it would be helpful are:
- Scan Data for Lookup
- Get Current Weather Data
- Get Street Address based off of location
- View Site History
- Check for Unique Values
- Lookup Previously Submitted Records
We are starting with development for Webforms/Public Links and will then work on the development for Android and iOS. Would love feedback and insight on the development.
Here is what we have thus far.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
