    Many, many, many events :)

    Asked by guest_23103395543045 on November 06, 2012 at 10:08 AM

    Hello!  I've been looking at many online form creators and am not having any luck finding exactly what i need, but I'm wondering if I'm just not seeing how to create what I need...


    I am trying to create a form that I can embed in an e-mail for parent to respond to.  I am creating a sign up for a swim meet.  I need to have the swimmer's name and have them let me know if they're attending the next meet or not, which I easily understand how to do. 


    However, I also need swimmer's to sign up for their events.  Events are broken down by age, male & female and stroke, so there are many.  I need them to be able to select 3 (sometimes more) events.  This next meet has 193 choices - swimmers are used to looking for their age group and events, so I'm not concerned about the number of events in the list, but I don't want to have to type or cut & paste each individual event.  That would take more time than an online entry form would save in the long run.


    I have a list of the events simplified in a google doc spreadsheet and would love to be able to just copy & paste the list into the form creator and add checkmarks or dots to each line.


    After that, I need to be able to pull that info into a spreadsheet for the coaches to approve.  It helps them to have events along the top of the spreadsheet with names running down the sides.


    Before I spend any more time playing on this website, I'd like to know if any of what I'm asking is possible!


    Thank you for your time!

    Hi there,

    Thanks for looking into our form builder!

    You can accomplish all that you have mentioned and we would be glad to help you put it together.

    However, forms are usually disabled by most e-mail service providers.  So the best practice would be to e-mail an invitation with a link to your form.

    I am sure I can put something together for your consideration in a short period of time. 

    Simply let us know the breakdown of the form.  All the choices and please describe the functionality that you would like the form to have.

    We'll look for your response!
