    Asked by Venkat Reddy on May 03, 2013 at 10:18 AM


    We have a requirement where the user submits an application for approval. When the user submits the application, it goes thruogh a multi-stage approval. Can you please let me know if this is possible to implement using your form builder.

    Also can you please confirm all the database tables needed to support the forms will be auto-generated.

    Request you to refer this thread: http://www.jotform.com/answers/108795-Do-you-have-functionality-for-an-approval-process-through-a-time-off-request-form

    Let us know if this is what you are looking for.

    On your another question, you won't get access to DB for your form. You can integrate your form with google spreadsheet and then import the data from spreadsheet to your DB.

    Another option is, If you have PHP/MySql programming exposure you can send the submission data to MySql usin PHP. Please refer this guide : http://www.jotform.com/help/126-How-to-Insert-or-update-form-submissions-to-your-MySQL-database-using-PHP

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
