    We are looking to create two things: a form for collecting data and a web-searchable database that we can display via our own webpage.  Do you offer any tools that could help with this project?

    Hi Brandi,

    For that, we have an article in our guide -How-to-Insert-or-update-form-submissions-to-your-MySQL-database-using-PHP .It does require knowledge of PHP and MySQL

    You can also download as CSV the form's submission reports. Then, afterwards you can easily import the downloaded data into your database. Example, you can download all CSV into a pre-define locatin or folder, then use cron or scheduled tasks (MSSQL or MySQL have such tools) to automatically parse the files/data into the database.

    Hope the idea help in some way. Please inform us if you have further inquiry.
