    Data management and Jotform

    Asked by RainbowChorale on March 07, 2014 at 08:48 AM

    We are looking into a data management / group management for our community choir. I have been using jotforms for a number of months and am very happy. Plus you keep improving the service.

    Is there a wayto integrate the forms into a custom-made database system (like MySQL)? We have hired a group of students to develop the database, but I would still like to use jotforms.

    Hello RainbowChorale,

    Yes, it is possible to send submission records to MySQL database. There are actually multiple options to achieve your requirement: 

    1. Zapier Integration: You can take advantage of our recently released Zapier integration. Take a look at here: http://apps.jotform.com/app/zapier_integration

    2. You can directly download the sql file of your submissions and import them in your MySQL database:  Check this app: http://apps.jotform.com/app/mysql_export

    3. You can write your own custom code to save submission records in your MySQL database. Please check this related thread: http://www.jotform.com/help/126-Form-to-MySQL 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.
