    Asked by sameerbijjur on July 25, 2016 at 07:01 AM

    Dear Team,

    I have designed a form https://form.jotform.me/62013387373454 using jotforms it really easy and user friendly,

     

    However, since i would like to publish it on my company intranet (for local usage only) and I do not want to save the information on my jotform account or over the internet as data is sensitive.

     

    Please help me on how can i use the this form and database without saving the data over the internet.

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to bypass the JotForm storage for the submissions received. This data can be accessed by the account holder only when logged into your account unless the data is shared. It is required to connect to the internet to access the form and to receive the submission data. However, if you do not want to store the data with JotForm you'll need to delete the data from the forms manually.

    We have an app to auto-delete the submissions from the forms. However, this app cannot delete the files received through the forms.

    Before you delete the data, you may store the submission data to your own MySQL database by following the guide below:

    You may also create a fillable PDF form from your JotForm, so that the forms can be saved with the filled information.

    You may also take a look at our Encrypted forms feature though the data is stored with JotForm. The encrypted submission data can be viewed only after uploading the private key. Please see the guide below that provides more information about encrypted forms.
