    Sending submissions to database

    Asked by goquote on May 02, 2015 at 06:49 AM

    Is it possible to have the notification email sent as JSON or .xml data? (for the purpose of backend database integration.)

    If you do not offer such a feature, would it possible to hire a third party programmer to do it as some sort of a add-on feature?

     

    Many thanks

    Ben

    It is not possible pass data values using email notifications. However, you can use POST method so you can send submissions to your database using PHP and MySQL.

    You can also use Webhooks, please check this guide: https://cms.jotform.com/blog/85-Send-Instant-Submission-Notifications-with-Webhooks

    Yes, you can download the full form source code and hire a developer to assist you on what you want.

    Hope this helps. Thank you.
