Sending form data to mySQL

    I just read the user guide article on how to do this.  I have already set up a webhook integration to point to a php file on my web server to receive the data.  IS there a benefit to doing it using your method instead of using Webhooks?

    Hi Pete,

    You must be referring to this article/user guide 

    -How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP  compare to using Webhooks instead.

    If you go via this method, you will have to code everything outside the Form Builder. You will program your entire PHP script (interface) on your own. Meaning you will be more hands-on and can control the entire aspect of the interface.

    While if you use Webhooks, the extensions are readliy avaliable. You can use them immediately. But since some of the extensions are hard coded, you will not be able to modify them if you need to.

    But I can say the difference is really very minimal. Either way, the benefits will be determine only on how the approach was made.

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
