Send form submission data to CMS

I'm not sure why this function does not exist yet, since it seems so simple.

The basic idea is to port/forward/link Webflow form data to a CMS collection. So people can send information to the CMS based on a Webflow form. This is greatly beneficial for anyone that makes a platform out of their website.

Currently I'm using a work-around through Typeform & Zapier, which is a hassle, since it uses two other (paid) services. If I'm paying for a CMS website, imo this should be included in the basics.

    I'm not sure if i got this right.. There is currently no way to directly insert, update or remove records into the collections database via form submission? Even if i export the code and run it on my own server, there is no way to get direct data exchange with my database server?

    Please tell me there is a way. I thought i found new gold for web building but without db support it's just some kind of modern FrontPage.

    This is so frustrating and disappointing, I might be forced to leave Webflow and find another solution, you can't build complex stuff without this functionality. And really why is it so hard?

    First when using Zapier you have to pay 240 dollars per year and it's such an unnecessary time consuming thing to connect to your Zappier then to Webflow, second whenever you are using multi reference field, this whole thing becomes a total mess.

    Webflow we need this right now.

    I am new to webflow, I have been building my websitea/apps without a builder for the last decade. I am very impressed with the platform, training and documentation. However from day one I have been looking for a solution to this exact problem.  I want to keep using Webflow, but the need to build the CMS outside the platform to enable user specific data management keeps steering me away.  I am spending all my votes on this feature.

    Having to use a 3rd party platform to connect to your own CMS is idiotic.  I can't believe WebFlow hasn't come up with a solution yet, since WebFlow already does connect it's form data to the CMS, which you can view in the editor and settings.

    I have clients I am considering moving away from WebFlow due to the increased monthly cost for using 3rd party apps (such as Zapier) and others. $45US/month for form file upload and then $15US/month for Zap. Other wen building platforms can facilitate these options for less.  It's 2020 and I feel this problem shouldn't exist. Hope there is a solution soon.

    When you are wireframing for clients, it would really help to show what is going to happen with the form data so you can see a results page.  Vote up!

    @webflow what happening here, seems to be in high demand. 

    This is a deal breaker for a lot of scenarios

    Lol, almost 2 and a half years later since the original post, people still upvoting it to this day. Safe to say this isn't being added? Very unfortunate.

    Totally agree with others comments here and would also upvote if I had any left. Seems like a no-brainer to me and very much needed.

    User generated directories of any sort.  So much capability that takes Weblow from brochure site into a web app / MVP space... Bring it please
