    How to send forms submission data to my database?

    Asked by schiang on May 13, 2015 at 03:34 AM

    Hi Techsupport


    it seems I am in dilemma that I wanna to keep thnkyou page but I also want to post form data to my server. 

    Before after posted, the webpage will receive a reply from my server and shows the result . I don't wanna customer to see the replied code but just only ThankYou.

    I did tried webhooks that I was hoping it can deliver the URL out and the other hand it still can show Thankyou Page. 

    unfortunately the URL doesn't work out with webhooks. My server doesn't receive any from webhook. I am guessing it might be due to XML format in URL.


    Please advise your previous opinion.

    Hello Steven,

    I am not sure if I have understood your requirement correctly.

    Do you want to past your form data and save it in your DB? To achieve this, you will have to enable the "Post Form Data" preference of your form and then set the "Custom Thank You URL". Once the form is submitted, user will be redirect to your own thank you page where you can read the post data. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/51-How-to-Post-Submission-Data-to-Thank-You-Page 

    Alternative method is by taking advantage of our Zapier integration app. Please take a look at here: http://apps.jotform.com/app/zapier_integration
