    Hi!

    I’m interested in your form software and have a question regarding entries. Is there a possibility to use the saved database entries and display them for my users?

    I want to make a form where the user will fill in information that I request, afterword I want to display the data at their user area although not all of it just bits and pieces from the request form. It can be things like status


    Regards
    Mathias

    Mathias,

    There are two approaches to achieve your goal. One is by creating an html or grid report and  embedding it on your site. The other is by enabling your form to send submission data to your database via HTTP POST method.

    The first approach is limited, as there is very little customization options in a report. Also, while you can choose which fields to display, all entries will make its way into the report.

    The second approach provides you the freedom to customize everything but you'll have to do your own custom scripting to achieve what you want the form to do.
