    How to send submission data to my own database?

    Asked by shalynn pickens  on May 04, 2017 at 01:24 PM

    I'm interested in store data onto a database verses receiving information through an email.  By any chance, do you have any resources/products?

    Hello shalynn,

    Please note that there is no built in feature to send submission data to your own database but with a little workaround it is possible to achieve your requirement. You may like to take a look at the following guide which should help you:  https://www.jotform.com/help/126-How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Hello shalynn,

    Please note that if you do not want to receive submissions in email, you can delete the notification email alerts from your form and just view the submissions in your form's submission page. The following guide should help you:
