    Does the data go into a database ...

    Asked by Thewad on April 17, 2013 at 10:44 PM

    that we can interrogate later.  If we set up a membership data collection form will this allow us to slice the data later against a particular answer i.e ethnicity or gender etc?)

    Using integrations and submissions downloads, there are options you can take to collect data for slicing purposes.

    1. Download the submissions data into Excel,CSV, or PDF format

    2. Integrate the form to Google Docs Spreadsheet. You can use the spreadsheet data collection to slice the collected data.

    3. Post the submissions data to MySQL database. Use this guide How-to-Insert-Update-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP


    Hope this help. Please inform us if you have further question.
