How to connect forms with your own database

123FormBuilder is a professional web form builder that not only creates user-friendly contact forms but also covers them with many features that you might find useful.

A new highly requested feature is now available on our platform.  It was possible to connect your forms with a CSV file, however, we facilitate the process. Now you can also send form submissions to your own MySQL or MariaDB database.

Starting with our Corporate plans you will be able to make the connection. Once upgraded, go to Settings – Applications and look for the green icon listed with DAT.
