  • The API has rich information about the forms and submissions that cannot be accessed through the portal.
  • Handles large numbers of responses robustly.
  • Ability to download data from surveys with many responses.
  • If you have ever received more responses than expected to one of your forms, you might have experienced downloading the data from the portal fails. The API can access all the data more easily, giving you all your data in one go.
