    I would like to be able to retrieve data from the form into a query (php) on my site. How do I accomplish this?

    Hi there,

    You can use the Send Post post feature to transmit data and use it
    on your own script.

    To see how it works please do the following:

    1. Create a "test.php" on your site and put this code in it:
    <? print_r($_POST); ?>
    2. Go to "Setup & Share" -> "Thank You" -> "Custom URL" and enter http://domain.com/test.php
    3. Enable the "Send Post Data"
    4. Save and submit your form.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
    Mliz
