Creation of data base and bookletAsked by Geodesyxyz on August 09, 2015 at 09:00 AM
Hello! My question is - I have form, which requires filling of several fields. I want to save this information in appropriate format for later use. I need to use only some of the required fields in order to create a booklet for a conference (like name of the participant, reporting author, scientific field, etc.) Is there a possibility to gather and filter the information automatically from the registrations form (which will be several hundreds) into a booklet with the conference programme? Thanks!
All submitted data is saved into our database, from which you can export your submissions as Excel files, or even partially download form submissions as Excel, CSV, PDF.
If you want to forward your submission data into your own database, such as a MySQL database on your own server, you can do so by using a custom Thank You page with a PHP script in it. We have a guide that better explains this process:

I would like to clarify if I understand you correctly. As I understand it, you seem to be talking about the following - your form is asking 5 different questions, such as: name, email, address, subject, experiments. Now, you only wish to have 3 of those 5 answers forwarded for your booklet, since you have no need for the address and email in the booklet.
Is this the correct assumption?
Yes, you can filter only some of the entered fields, and have only these selected fields exported into Excel or CSV files. When it comes to putting this information directly into your booklet, you will have to contact a person who is creating your booklets to see if they are able to include data directly from Excel or CSV files.
If this is what you are looking for, you can achieve it by setting up an Excel Report. You will be able to select which fields will be included in the exported Excel file of your submissions:
If I have misunderstood your question, please clarify, and we will be happy to assist you. I hope this helps.
Thanks a lot!
At the moment I will study the possibilities and decide which one will fit best to my needs!
On behalf of my colleague, Boris, you are most welcome. Please do not hesitate to get back to us if you have any questions doing so and we will be glad to help you anytime. Thank you.
