    A form that reflects the datebase of a website

    Asked by Sandy  on April 25, 2014 at 12:15 PM

    Hi. I got a question.

    I am looking for a form that could reflect the database of the website by the submitted queries.

    What I wanna do is routine. It's just a simple form where the users can submit their query (which is about the determined amount of money) and then submitting it through the form and upon submitting , the datebase would add their invested money to their userpanel.

    Are your forms able to do so ? Is there a scripting option for this type of thing ?

    What should I be doing to sort this out ? (can you walk me through it by some guideliness )

    Hi Sandy,

    You want to insert form submissions to your database, i.e. MySQL Database. If that's the case, that is possible using our Send Post Method. Check this guide: How-to-Insert-Update-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP


    You can also create a PHP script that would capture form submitted data and insert it your database using Webhook: How-to-Setup-Webhook-with-JotForm.

    Both are belongs to our advance features so if you need assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us.
