    Hi there,

    Yes it is possible to send data from a form to some other web application.  You could do this by posting the form data to a custom thank you page. 

    You would need to create the thank you page in such a way that it can understand the data being sent to it.  I would recommend getting a web developer to help you if possible since it is an advanced feature.  If you are trying to send data to an already existing web service then you would probably need to use your custom thank you page as a proxy.

    Have a look at this link to see a detailed explaination of how to set it up:
