Importing old website's database into Jotform

    Asked on January 16, 2014 at 12:02 AM

    Hello there,

    Got two questions:

    My prior website would take information people entered into a form and put that into a database. I have gone into PHPmyadmin and downloaded a copy of that database (in a variety of formats, .sql .csv etc.) 

    The new website is using Jotform to collect this data. Is there a way for me to import my existing data into the database that Jotform is now collecting information into?

    I'm also looking for a way to have Jotform sned out an email with a daily report of information/resumes collected.

    Thank you very much for the help.

    You can definitely try this solution:

    As the app states you can import  submission data back in to your account from Excel and CSV files.

    Do let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.

    Thanks. We’re looking for the opposite. Is there an App that will send the form data to us in .xls or .csv format rather than, or in addition to, as an email?

    1. You could try with an Excel report

    2.Or you can download the Submissions as Excel/CSV/PDF

    3.You could  also integrate the form with Google spreadsheet that way, you can get the Excel from Gdocs
