    Online Application Forms

    For our sixth form we are looking at implementing an online application form for new students. The information needing to be put into it are such details as address, contact information and other secure information, was just wondering if anyone did something similar and had a secure way of storing the data.

    Why not create a form on your CMS that emails an account the details when input.

    Thanks for the quick reply, forgot to mention that SMT believe that emails are not secure enough to handle such delicate information.

    then in that case, it could go to a secure database on your webhost, but thats just as safe as emails (nothing is 100% safe when it comes to computers)

    I suggested emails initially but got shot down. May i be cheeky and ask how i would go about setting up a secure form that went to a database?

    Set up a database with the fields you need such as

    Firstname
    Surname
    Address
    Postcode
    Telephone Number
    Mob Number
    Email Address
    Courses
    BLAH BLAH BLAH

    then create inputs for the form to correlate with those table headings
    then create a button to submit the data into the database

    You can do this all with a Google Form, the details all get entered into a spreadsheet. You can optionally get an email when someone fills out the form.
