    Generate different checklists or documents based on user filled in forms

    Asked by Eddie on September 01, 2012 at 06:17 PM

    I need to create a form with a handful of questions a user fills in. That part I can figure out easily enough. Is it possible to generate different checklists or a pre-made document (word doc, pdf, excel, or whatever) based on some of the answers given? Then the user can then print out or save it. For example: Name, date, property address, date property was built....plus a few more. If the property was built before 1978 for instance, then one checklist is generated after submission. If built after 1978, a different checklist is generated.

    Basically, there are a few key questions that would either eliminate or include an item on the checklist that gets generated for that transaction. Also, after submission, all the data could get sent into a spreadsheet or something that I can use to track things. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Eddie,

    You can use Conditional Logic on the forms. Please checkout this guide http://www.jotform.com/help/57-Conditional-Logic-on-Forms on how to do it. 

    The way I see it, using your different checklist concept, you can do this by having a multiple-page form, then, using the condition logic skip to page feature, you can redicrect the form user after to the pag number after selecting from an option or a dropdown selection.

    The form have integration features, one of this is to google spreadshet (http://www.jotform.com/blog/57-Google-Docs-Integration-Send-Responses-to-Google-Spreadsheets-Instantly-) . You can find out more about the other available integration features here http://www.jotform.com/blog/

    And also, though I am not sure yet, but it seams you have not created an account yet, and currently uses a guest account only. It is recommended to at least subscribe to a Basic Free account (you make one here). Using guest account only can be susceptible to difficulty in assistance later, as it will be difficult to associate forms to guest accounts only.

    Hope this help. Please feel free to contact us again anytime should you have more inquiry or needed assistance.
