I have a variety of sharepoint forms for office 365 that upon submission kick off a workflow created in sharepoint designer. These forms follow an approval process and trigger emails based on statuses of a drop down list inside the form. At the conclusion of the workflow i would like to have that form submit to a external database. How would this be completed.

1 solution

Add small piece of javascript (easiest with jQuery). Collect the data and call web service to save to external database.

In Sharepoint 2013, you can create external content type that links directly to the database. Then use CSOM to access it as any other list.

Finally, you could do event receiver that will intercept the submit and do whatever custom action you need.
