Formidable Forms + MySQL Database [Plugin] – Develop CRM


The Formidable Forms MySQL integration plugin (Formidable DB) saves entries to the MySQL database. It saves data to MySQL’s separate tables and columns. Each form will save to a separate table.

The column name is based on the input label or placeholder. We can change the table or column name by filter hooks. It helps you to save submissions to an internal or external (remote) MySQL database.
