    Our forms store data each to its own separate database, which means that multiple forms will be placing their collected data in multiple databases - one database per form.

    There are no ways to have submission data from multiple forms displayed in a single database within JotForm. When viewing your submission data on JotForm, it will always be in one database per form. You can always view your form's submissions by following this guide:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/269-How-to-View-Form-Submissions

    If you want to combine data from multiple forms into one CSV file for download, you may want to use our Combine Submissions app:

    If you want to send data from multiple forms into your own single MySQL database, you can do that as well, but it will be a little more complex to set up. The following guide explains how to achieve such requirement:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/126-How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP

    In the above method, you would point each of your forms to a PHP page on your website that would then process/forward the data to your MySQL database.
