    What database software works well with Jotform?

    Asked by PensacolaMESSHall on October 22, 2015 at 11:05 AM

    We have members, donors, and program participants. All fill out forms on JotForm. I am interested in getting all of these folks in a single database (a CRM, Microsoft Access, MySQL, etc). I have some specific reasons:

    1. We offer member discounts on programs. Currently, we just ask on the form if the registrants are members, but then have to manual check that they are. Can JotForm automatically check the database, or is there a good way to do this?

    2. I would like to know which members go to what programs, if someone has come to multiple programs but is not a member, etc. 

    I have some other, non-JotForm related things I'd like to do, as well.

    What sort of database software is best for the above issues?

    Thanks.

    You can automatically send your form submissions to your MySQL database. You can use our Send Post Method. Here's our guide for that:

    Then you can create a script and call it in the form. You can embed the form using our source codes method so you can add your custom script there (http://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form). 

    Should you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

    Thanks
