    Thank you for contacting us.

    You might be referring to the process on how to POST then INSERT your form data into your own database? This guide should help you on how to send your data to your database http://www.jotform.com/help/126-Form-to-MySQL.

    To style your form so you can have the colors and design of your old form you can use the custom CSS to do that.

    I search Parse.com and found this on the documentation


    Specifically, you can probably use the PHP parseQuery method described here


    I recommend you seek assistance about it to the support at Parse.com. I am sorry, but our knowledge about it is also limited since it is outside JotForm already.

    On the JotForm side, you can Send Post Data of the form submissions using PHP and Custom URL thank you page. Here is the guide


    The data in the Post method can be parse by Parse.com.

    Hope this help. Inform us if you have further inquiry.
