Is there a way to link form entries to a users profile? We have a subscription that needs to store certain dates from the form and I would like the information to be in their profile.

You can get data from the user filling in the form by writing the following as Value of that field:
$user =& JFactory::getUser();
echo $user->name; ?>
That way you can have a form in your form filled in with wanted user data so that the submission is connected to the user.
You can see an example and explanation how to get more user data here .

Also, what you could do is you could write an SQL query in the End Submit pieces to update specific data in a Joomla database table if that is what you want.
You would fetch the username and the date from the form and change value in database table.

Let me know whether that is what you want to achieve.
