    Webhooks to Database

    Asked by ducartours on August 15, 2016 at 02:27 PM

    Hello,

    Can you please tell me how to use Webhooks to get JotForm information with payment calculations into a database ...

    Excel, Quickbooks OR Access Database Manager? 

    When I open "web hooks" in Integrations ..it says to "ADD WEBHOOK" what URL would that be?

    I don't know where to start 

    Thanks

    Hi,

    It will also require you to have a bit of knowledge in programming so you can accomplish this.

    You can start by reviewing our user guide: How-to-Setup-a-Webhook-with-JotForm

    The Webhook URL being referred to must be an existing page on your website that contains the server-side scripts (in PHP)

    You can check example scripts here Webhook-PHP-Script-Examples

    The process will be complicated if there is no knowledge in programming. So perhaps its better if you can hire or ask someone that have a better grasp on the technique.

    --

    On the other hand, perhaps you do not really need Webhook to accomplish what you require. There are also other means to send your form data into your databases.

    Here are also apps that can also do the same which will not require you any programming.

    https://apps.jotform.com/search/database

    Example, if your database is MySQL, you can just export the data to your MySQL using the MySQL Export app.

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
