    Form That Displays Multiple User's Input?

    Asked by Nirav on March 15, 2013 at 10:28 AM

    Hello,

    Is it possible to create a form for the following situation.

    For example:

    There is a web page with an embedded form. There is a group of ten people whose names are listed on the form in text boxes, and alongside each name there are two radio button options: "not available" and "available". Anyone from the group can go to the web page, and next to their name update their status by selecting "not available" or "available". The form on the web page reflects the updates. So then anyone who goes to the web page can see the current status of others in the group.

    multiple user create a form name status next

    Hi Nirav,

    Its possible to achieve this but you need to have the programming knowledge of PHP/MySQL. You need to create a table in MySQL and update that table from your form.

    Please refer this guide on How to Insert or update form submissions to your MySQL database using PHP

    Once the data is stored in MySQL, you need to retrieve it to display in your JotForm form. Please refer this guide on Prepopulating the fields to your JotForm via URL parameters

    Hope this helps!!

    Thanks,

    Sidharth
