    Asked by Michael Kyle  on February 10, 2016 at 12:51 PM

    i am looking for a tool that will allow me to create a form, and the take the data to some form of data base to create a membership directory.  Is this something I can do with your product?

    Yes, if you are looking for a simple form with a membership database it's possible to create a form that can send submission data you receive into an external database for memberships.

    However, if you plan doing more advanced things such as trying to pull that back in to the form that will be much more difficult to do unless you are willing to get your hands dirty with some advanced programming outside of jotform and the form's source code since our system is not really intended to act as a hosted admin|membership directory. For that you might consider getting our Memberkit Engine instead as another alternative.
