    What database type is used for storage? i.e. MSSQL.

    Can forms have required fields with character/number validation ?
    Can you create a URL string with parameters from the form submit?
    Can you retrieve data back to the form for edit/save actions?

    Hi, thank you for reaching out to us.

    To avoid confusion, we have moved your other questions to a separate thread. We will respond to your questions to their corresponding thread shortly.

    As to your first question, the data received are stored on our servers. The data is encrypted and secured to safeguard our data.

    It is possible to integrate the form submissions data with different services like Google Drive, Dropbox, Box.net, Google Spreadsheet, send to FTP, send with Webhooks, etc.

    Alternatively, you can send submission data to your own server by using a custom PHP code. However, you will need some PHP/MySQL programming to do this. Please refer to this guide: How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP


    I hope this information will help. Let us know if you have further questions.
