    Can your tool be used to collect data to integrate into a database, or is email notification the only option?

    Hi Matt,

    Thank you for your inquiry.Yes it is possible to indirectly integrate your JotForm form submissions into your Mysql database in 2 different ways:

    1. Use the Send Form Post Data feature to add the data to your database indirectly. You will need to write some PHP (or other programming language) server side code to insert the data to your database. We just added a new guide on how to Insert or update form submissions to your MySQL database using PHP, click here to view it.

    2. Export your form submissions into an Excel/CSV File and import it into your database. For instructions on how to export submissions in JotForm, please click here.

    We hope you find this information useful. If you have any other questions or concerns , please let us know. Thank you for using JotForm!
