    How can I create a counter for workshop registrations?

    Asked by nanmoo on May 19, 2012 at 11:34 AM

    I have a workshop registration form and their is a minimum number of attendees for the workshop to "make". Is there a way to place a counter on the page that has the link register?


    This is where I would want the counter to appear.

    page with link: http://www.ctm-sa.org/registration.html

    This is the page with actual registration form

    Thanks for your request. First, you need to insert a unique ID field in your form. You can find it under the Power Tools section of the Form Builder.

    Name the ID to something like 'Products submitted' or 'Entries Submitted'.  This label will be displayed in the form as the title of the counter.

    Unique ID should start at zero the first time it is added to a form, meaning, previous entries will not be counted.

    Then, create an HTML Table report for your form:

    1.  Go to My Forms

    2.  Click on the specific form where you want the counter to appear

    3.  Click the Reports button in the toolbar then choose Add New Report

    4.  Choose HTML Table Listing from the options then click Next

    5.  Check only the Unique ID field to display on your report then click Next

    6.  Get the iFrame code for your report

    7.  Edit your form. Insert a Free Text HTML field in your form. This tool can be found under the Power Tools section as well

    8.  Click the HTML button in the toolbar then copy your report's iframe code. Change the height and min-height to 59px. You may adjust the width as well to your preferred value.

    9.  Copy and paste this code before your report's iframe code

    <div style="width: 100%; height: 100%; top: 0px; left: 0pt; position: absolute; z-index: 100;"></div>

    For example:

    10.  Save and test your form.
