    Can these forms be set up to send data to a MySQL database?

    Asked by Tory World on December 23, 2014 at 02:49 PM

    Hey,

    I've used your services before and that's why I'm back! I'm thinking about doing an app fpr my local music scene. I would like to create a few forms:

    1. User form - sign up for customers and to gather info

    2. Band form - Bands can upload some pictures, music, and bio info. Would also be able to later edit this info

    3. Venue form - Venues can unload pictures and stuff and would later be able to edit this info

    4. Backend form - sed for me to edit the info

    So, the question is, can your product interface with an outside database?

    Hi Tory,

    Based on the mentioned above the simple answer would be yes, you could create all of the jotforms from above as well as make them send data to your database.

    I would suggest next few guides that will help you on setting it up:
