    There 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?

    Yes. 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.

    That'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.
