    The database side of jotform is automatically managed by our system, users don't have access to database configuration and tables only the submissions sent by the forms.

    If you require to send the data to a custom database of your own, you need to redirect the form to a custom thank you page and enable form POST data in the form preferences

    This guide will show you how to send this post data to a custom PHP page for your manipulation
