Remote Form Entry for Customers
My company would like to create several service request forms that our customers could fill out on the web and which would then automatically be imported into our FMP database. In other words, John Doe could fill out an electronic form on our company website, and that form information would then appear as a record in our database so that we may use it.
How do we go about this? I saw an option for importing XML data via HTTP requests, but I have no idea how to use this function, or even if it is what I'm looking for.
Thank you kindly.
Why not just publish the database to the web using Instant Web Publishing?
That way, the users can access the forms through their web browsers, but when they click "submit", the data is automatically committed to your database.
