    database

    Asked by Loribella on July 28, 2011 at 07:23 PM

    I want my sign-ups to be as automated as possible:  they fill out the form on my site, pay and submit through the form, they get an autoresponse email and the data they entered is stored in a database for me.

    Is there any kind of feature or add-on that will store the info entered into my forms on a database?  Or would you recommend something that will work well with jotform?

     

    Thanks,

    Loribella

    Hi Loribella,

    Thank you for your interest and welcome to JotForm - the world's fastest online form builder!

    JotForm may work for you depending on how you want to use the data and up to what extent do you want the system to process it. With JotForm, you can create forms that collect personal information from your users. You can receive these responses through email (via email notifications), your JotForm account (through the submissions pageof each form), FTP, or DropBox. 

    May we know what database are you using? While there is no direct solution available at the moment, it is possible to indirectly integrate your JotForm form submissions into your database in a number of ways:

    A) Use the Send Form Post Data feature to add the data to your database indirectly. You will need to write some PHP (or other programming language) server side code to insert the data to your database. 

    B) Export your form submissions into an Excel/CSV File and import it into your database. For instructions on how to export submissions in JotForm,please click here.

    C) Purchase the JotForm Application License.  This way you can have complete control over your data.  You can also customize the source code according to your needs. 

    However, if you want users to be automatically signed up to receive your monthly newsletters for example, JotForm may not be sufficient to handle this at this time.

    We hope you find this information useful. If you have any other questions or concerns , please let us know. Thank you for using JotForm!

    I don't currently use a database or know anything about them.  I was hoping you had a feature that stores in a database on your server, the info that my customers enter into my web form.  Or I was hoping that you could tell me of an easy database for a novice to integrate with your forms.

    Yes, we do store your form submissions data into our server which you can access anytime you're online. You can also download these submissions into an Excel or CSV File which you can save as your own copy, further process and import into your own database (i.e. MS Access, MS SQL, etc).

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    @loribella,

    In addition to what allanftd has mentioned, you can access your form's submission by going to My Forms, selecting the specific form then clicking the Submissions button in the toolbar

     

    Hope this helps.

    It should be possible to Export collected data from JotForm, and then Import the data into Filemaker Pro.

    Please take a look at this link.
