    Form submissions to database automation

    Asked by salesthinwarenet on March 26, 2015 at 02:22 AM

    Has anyone figured out how to automate getting form submissions into a database?


    We are currently just manually downloading a CSV from each of our 3 forms and importing it into our order processing database several times a day. This works, but it is sure getting old.

    Yes, here's a guide for that: http://www.jotform.com/help/126-How-to-Insert-Update-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP. There is a sample php script provided but it requires basic knowledge of PHP to edit the field names on the script. If you need help with that or if you are stuck with any of the steps, feel free to let us know here.
