    ability to store these documents .

    Asked by Ray Musumeci on May 15, 2012 at 03:04 PM


    I used 1an1 to build a site, but their form was limited and had no ability for the user, my customer to attach / upload a file or document. They referred me to you, and I created the submission form in Jotform.

    That said, Jotform records the submission and I can run an Excel report behind the scene. but what I was looking for is something more live , not a static report, hence the idea of MySQL.

    My site will be basically divided into two pieces. On one side my customer submits an assignment which may include a document or photo. On the other side, my employee will retrieved the assignment, completed it , and send back to the customer. here lies the need for a database , and the ability to store these documents .

    any ideas?

    There is a workaround already for what you are looking for, or at least, it can give you an idea if you will definitely use a MySql database . Please check this guide

    However, I think that if all you need is to send an email to an specific address (your employee's) once it is submitted, you can create one or more notifications and then setup a conditional logic for it

    Hope these hints helps you.

    Thank you for choosing Jotform
