    Hello atabisco,

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to create such form with our builder. We do not have such feature. To create something similar, you will have to interact with DB and fetch the details based on tracking number. Our forms are primarily designed to collect information and it is not possible to fetch data based on a query.

    You may like to build a small web application which will fetch data from your database. One possibility is that you create form where you can input the tracking information for every tracking number. You can integrate your form with google spreadsheet which will copy the submission records to your google account. If you have custom programming exposure, you can use write your own code to send data to your MySQL database.

    Once you have the data in your own database, you can write your own code to fetch and display information based on a tracking number.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
