    How to send submission data to local server?

    Asked by SimonAllevio on July 10, 2017 at 11:55 AM
    Hi there - 

    Is there any way for the form's results to be sent directly to our local server so that we can maintain them locally?

    Hello SimonAllevio,

    Please note that there is no built in feature to send submission data to your own server but with a little workaround it is possible to achieve your requirement. Here are the options available:

    #1. You can post the submission data to your own page by enabling the "Send Post Data" in your form preferences and then redirect to your own thank you page. In this thank you page, you can add your own code to read the submission data and save it in your own database. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/213-Send-POST-Data-From-JotForm-Using-PHP-in-Custom-Thank-You-Page 

    #2. You can take advantage of our Zapier integration app as well. Take a look at here: http://apps.jotform.com/app/zapier_integration  You may also like to check this which should help you: https://zapier.com/zapbook/jotform/mysql/4061/add-jotform-submissions-to-mysql/ 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
