    I have a client who wants me to use FormAssembly because it can submit data directly to a database. It is much more costly, plus a really like Jotform. Can Jotform do this as well?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    We have an alternative to FormAssembly HTTP Connector feature, you can send the form Post data to 3rd party script with us. Please take a look at the following article:

    Also, we have plans to release our API this year, so it may be helpful for similar tasks.

    Alternatively, you may consider our Licensed solution to host the App on your own servers.
