CF8 Save Data Help

andybeck 15 Mar, 2024
I need some help with the setting up the Save Data action.
I haven't used CF since version 5, and I'm having trouble setting up the Save Data function.
I've set up a simple contact form. and everything works except for logging the data. I've added the "Save Data" action at the end of the Submit tab, but I'm not sure how to configure it. (see attached photo)
It's not critical that I have it, but would like to use the feature.
I'm using ChronoFormsv8 on a Joomla 5.0.3 install with PHP version 5.32.1
Any help is appreciated.

Hi andy

First you can enable the form Log setting and that will save the form data to the logs table if you just need to browse the form logs, which I think is what you are trying to do

if you need to save the data to a form table then you should NOT use the "_datalog" table as in the screenshot, you need to create a new table (using Chronomyadmin extension or phpmyadmin) then use the Behaviors > Data source in the "Save data" to map your form fields to the table fields

Did you try ChronoMyAdmin for managing your Joomla database tables ?

Thanks for the reply Max.

I tried it as you instructed. Log Data set to yes. No Save Data action. But still no log data.
I'm including Debug info as well.

See attached images.
