    can jotform be used for registrations

    Asked by Jenifer Tanis  on January 21, 2016 at 10:43 AM

    We require a system for online registration, confirmation, invoice, payment, receipt and can also send the info/merge/integrate with our existing database. 

    I used the External Data tab in our database to import a jotform excel file. It created a new record- but I want to connect to existing records. Also, I was limited to the personal information fields so our database objects would have to be changed to make it work. 

    Can I use jotform for online registrations that will import to my database?

    Then create your PHP script:
