Saving Data into any desired database table

    Is it possible to save the entries of a gravity form into any desired database table in a wordpresss database? I did not find a documentation about that yet.

  2. Gravity forms will store the submitted data in its own tables. However, you can also write values anywhere you want using the gform_after_submission hook which is documented here:

    http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_after_submission

    The hook will run after the entry is stored in the Gravity Forms tables, but you can write a function which will write the values you want to the table you want.

    This isn't really a Gravity Forms thing, but instead a requirement of PHP knowledge. If you look at how to save data to a database in PHP, the hook we have shows how to grab form data, and then between inserting data into a mysql table and our hook, you should be able to do what you want.

    If you don't have experience doing this, and want a customization that requires saving form data to a special database table, I suggest hiring a developer on our job board, or on sites like jobs.wordpress.net

    All my best!
