Using the J1 Mapping Tool for Internet Submissions


Information and features vary according to the roles to which you belong and the permissions associated with those roles. For more information, contact your module manager or your campus support team.

FormFlow gives you powerful tools to process your form information. You can use the J1 Mapping Tool to send form information to the Process Internet Submissions window in the J1 Desktop. After information is reviewed and confirmed, it is updated in the J1 database.

How it Works

When you create or edit a form, the J1 Mapping Tool is accessible from the Tools menu. Clicking the J1 Mapping Tool option opens the Internet Submissions Mapping page, where you can select a form type and see the database tables that can be mapped to it. Only the tables associated with the selected form type are available for mapping (e.g., you cannot use the tables associated with the Admissions Inquiry form type if the Housing Application form type is selected). After the form type and mapping table are selected, you can map your form questions to columns in the selected database table.


The J1 Mapping Tool uses the Jenzabar Web Application Services Data Access Layer to connect back to J1 Desktop. It cannot target any other database.

The default mapping tables are associated to form types via data provided by the installer. If you want to map data for a specific form type to a custom table, use the J1 Desktop Manage Mapping Tables window to set up those relationships.

Form Templates with Default Mappings

Several form templates are already set up with form mapping, and you can add additional mapping connections or update the mappings based on how you've configured your form.
