    Hi,

    Yes, it’s possible to save the data from Frontend Submission to a custom table in the same database. But please note that the field ID must match with the column key of the custom table.

    For more information, please follow the documentation:
    https://docs.metabox.io/extensions/mb-custom-table/#notes
    https://docs.metabox.io/extensions/mb-custom-table/#using-existing-tables

    Hi,

    You can add the attribute post_type to the shortcode to define the post type to save data.

    [mb_frontend_form id="cliente" post_fields="title,content" post_type="budget"]
    

    Read more in the documentation https://docs.metabox.io/extensions/mb-frontend-submission/#shortcode-attributes.
