    I have two questions.

     

    1. How can I export formdata to a external database?

     

    2. I choose the dutch version but the "previous" button is not in dutch. How can I change that?

    You can use FTP when you need to upload your submitted files directly to your server. What I have mentioned you earlier, was to send your form data to your database.

    What I am looking for is that the data of the forms is stored in a database.
    Right now I use contact form on wordpress with the plugin “ contact form DB”wich stores the data in the database of wordpress.
    Do you have something like that.

    Hello Marc - I'm afraid we don't. The only possible way to do this is to come up with your own script to process the submission data with PHP and MySQL (the first suggestion of my colleague).

    In case you're wondering why we don't have a readily available feature similar to this, it's because all JotForm accounts have their own respective databases. Your Submission Data are collated on your Submissions Page and are displayed in a data grid (similar to a database).

    Another recommendation is to try with a middleman (i.e. Zapier) that will bridge the connection between JotForm and your external database. I'm assuming you're using MySQL.
