    Does Jotform have an API to export data to a database for analysis? The only integration I see is too manual, exporting form data as a SQL file to upload to the DB, is there an API to make this automatic once a form is submitted?

    Thank you,

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out to us!

    Yes, this is possible using the following three methods:

    1) Enable the "Send Post Data" feature in Form Settings, then redirect to your own thank-you page where you can read the submission data and save it in your own database.
