    I am hoping to have a backend database to collect our form submissions. Can that be done?

    Hi there,

    There are several ways to do that. First option is using PHP in your custom "Thank You" page. Below, you will find instruction about how to do that:

    Alternatively, you can send your submissions' data to your MySQL database by using PHP again:
