    Can the data from forms be saved on our servers?

    Asked by Felix  on February 11, 2015 at 11:25 AM



    I want the data to be saved on our servers. Also, I want some fields to be populated from the database itself. Is your solution able to do that ? 


    We also don't want data to be saved elsewhere than on our servers, we are a government entreprise.


    thanks for your quick feedback !

    It is possible to send submission data to your server too, but I want to make it clear that data can not bypass our severs. 

    In order to send the data, you need to do some custom programming on your end(most likely hire a programmer to accomplish it), please see this guide to help you have an idea on how to send submissions to your MySQL Database using PHP: http://www.jotform.com/help/126-How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP
