    Is it possible to use discount codes?

    Asked by wyracrew on May 30, 2012 at 10:51 PM

    Is it possible to use discount codes? I know you can't change the price of a registration according to dates, but what about issuing coupons? For instance if you pay by March 1, use the code MARCH and receive 10% off. Pay after March 2 and the discount code will no longer work.

    Also, I have a waiver on my form which is rather lengthy. I couldn't figure out how to put it in a small but expandable or scrolling box, such as the one I'm typing in right now. The only way I could put it on the form was to put the whole thing at the very end. Is there a way around that?

    Unfortunately,  such feature to add discount codes or coupons to our Payment tools is not available .

    Regarding to the Waiver, you can use a  Tex Area box that you can grab from our form tools menu , this box will expand as long as the user is type, you can resize it by grabing the lower right hand corner in order to increase or decrease its size

    I hope this clarifies your questions, let us know if you still have doubts

    I tried the Text Area Box before but it doesn't work because the USER is the one who enters the data. In my case, I need the same properties of the text area box, but I need to be the one who enters the waiver info. The only way I could get it on the page was by using an HTML box but it doesn't collapse down. It still takes up a huge amount of space.

    I don't know if I understood properly you need user to enter the data. The text area box will expand as the user keeps writing. But you also say you need same properties, but you need to be the one who enteres the waiver info. If I understood we are talking about 2 boxes.

    One could be hidden for you to enter the waiver info. This can be accomplished by inserting a CSS code to the element {display:none;} , though there is already a hidden box available under power tools .

    At any rate, a hidden box, will only appear on your excel report.

    Sorry, but you're not understanding me at all. Do you have an iTunes account? In order to get one, you first have to read Apple's terms and conditions which are several pages long. To save screen space, the terms and conditions appear in a smaller box that you can scroll through so you can read everything. Or, I guess some sites might have a box that you can expand so you can read through to the bottom. That's what I need. The only thing I need the user to do is read the terms and then check a box underneath that says they agree to them. I've already figured out a way to add that box. I just need a box that can be scrolled or expanded so the user can view the waiver. Therefore, I have to make the waiver visible so the user can read it. Does that make more sense?

    Ok, I see

    In that case you can easily accomplish that by using a Free Tex HTML field and add  something like the following code


    <div style="height:120px;width:250px;font:16px/26px Georgia, Garamond, Serif;overflow:scroll;">

    </div>

    See the example here

    Just grab the Free Text field from the Power Tools menu and then Click on the HTML button , located at the top  toolbar, as shown below . Add the text between the <div> and </div > tags


     

     

    You would also need to add a check box to make the user to accept the terms and conditions

    Hi again Julie!

    I have added the checkbox to my example and have made it required. This way the user won't be able to submit the form without accepting the terms

    For the checkbox field, grab it from our form tools menu , you will see 3 default boxes,  delete the unnecesary ones. Then make it required.

    Cheers!
