Forms are they database supported?

  • # January 7, 2013 at 11:00 am

    I am a relative beginner to forms, I was wondering I am trying to make a registration form for my company, for an upcoming event.
    I see a lot of solution out there like jotform, wofoo… I see they all send out an email when user hits submit button, is that common practice, or do I need to capture data to database?

    Usually this services store the data registered on their website and notifies you via email.

    As you have an event you can leave the service collecting the data from the attendees and after close sign up form get the data from the service.

    Usually they offer this data as a Excel Worksheet, a table in other words, that if you want can be imported on a database with ease.
