    Can my form data save to a database?

    Asked by Lauren on March 03, 2013 at 02:26 PM

    Hello, I use JotForm for so many of my customers, it works great! What I am looking for is a setting to have the form data automatically save to possibly a spreadsheet, or some kind of easily read database so that all of the entries are secure and accessible at once.  One of my customers is having people register for an event with multiple data fields submitted for each person who signs up; so having that information organized would be great.  Is this possible?

    Thank you in advance!

    Yes you can achieve this with JotForm. Please check the option avaiable mentioned below:

    1. You can export the submission data to spreadsheet. Refer this guide: Export Form Submission to Excel

    2. You can also send the submission data to google spreadsheet instantly. Refer this guide on Google Docs Integration guide
