How to Save Elementor Form Submissions in Database?

September 10, 2020Tutorial

Elementor Pro offers a great Form widget for making forms on WordPress sites. This widget can make forms that look good on any device and even send an email when someone fills them out. However, it doesn’t save the form submissions in a database. So, if you want to keep a record of the submissions, you need additional solutions.

To overcome this limitation, you can use Form Vibes. It’s a handy plugin that works seamlessly with Elementor. It does what Elementor’s Form widget doesn’t—it saves all the form submissions directly into your WordPress website’s database. This means you won’t miss any important leads or sales opportunities because you’ll have all the contact information stored safely.

With Form Vibes, you can easily access and manage all the submissions right from your WordPress dashboard. So, if you’re worried about losing track of who’s filling out your forms, Form Vibes has got you covered.

What is Form Vibes?

Form Vibes is a simple plug & play plugin to save Elementor form submissions into a database. Once you install it on your WordPress website, no other configurations are needed. It works as a submissions manager for your form builder plugins like Elementor Pro, Contact Form 7, and Caldera Form. It also comes with the Analytics feature to track the performance of the forms.

Installing Form Vibes

The first thing you’ll want to do is install the Form Vibes plugin. Once installed, be sure to click the Activate button. And that’s it. All the leads that your Elementor Form will be captured will be saved directly in DB.
