- bgoldsteinAsked on April 21, 2010 at 09:44 AMThere is a field on the form that says "Send Post Data". What does that do? Is there a way to capture the form data into a database?
- JotForm FounderaytekinAnswered on April 22, 2010 at 06:59 AMYes. To see how it works:
1. Create a "test.php" on your site and put this code in it:
<? print_r($_POST); ?>
2. Go to "Setup & Share" -> "Thank You" -> "Custom URL" and enter http://domain.com/test.php
3. Enable the "Send Post Data"
4. Save and submit your form.

- JotForm FounderaytekinAnswered on May 10, 2010 at 03:36 AMThat's something you would need to implement yourself. You can probably hire a developer to do that. This is really an advanced feature for advanced users.

When you say "Create a "test.php" on your site and put this code in it"...are you talking about creating a page on our website titled "test.php"?...or something else?

Hi, the answer is Yes.
"Create a "test.php" -- the test.php page will be in your website.
