it is when you ‘submit’ the data on any form that it sends that data into the database (ondemand or onpremise). so if you are able to design your form and never need to ‘submit’ the data you could do this and not store any data on our servers.

You could set up a connection action to your database using ‘INSERT’ to send the data in from the first stage’ , another SELECT action to read the data from your database into a new (blank) form, UPDATE action to then update that record as you collect more data for that form instance.

Your challenge though will be in terms of how you are able to identify the data stored in your database from the first ‘INSERT’ to read back into your forms for future stages. And of course as you are not ‘submitting’ the data you will not be able to use any of the workflow functions (notify audience etc).

So technically it is possible, but practically it will probably be hard to work with.

Is there a specific reason why you do not want data stored on our servers ? The data is very secure but if you have specific concerns, please let us know and we can see what can be done to assist there
