    Is it possible to embed another form into the html field of a new form?

    Asked by cheekyface on March 25, 2013 at 11:13 PM

    For examlple I have a quote form and for one of the questions I'd like to give users the option to complete a short survey before they continue with the form (or at the end of the quote form).

    By creating the survey within the existing form it is more likely to get people to do the survey than asking them to do more form filling after a quote form has taken up some of their time.

    I thought I had read a similar question a while ago and it was possible to insert a form using the iframe embed option but I tried that and it didn't work.  The code just disappeared after I saved it.

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated as a work around.

    Cheers,
    Danny.

    Hi Danny,

    Yes it is possible to embed your form within the "Free Text (HTML)"  field. Please follow these steps:

     

    1. Add a "Free Text" field in your form where you want to embed your other form.

    2. Select your Free Text field

    3. Click the HTML button found at the toolbar on top

    4. Paste in your other form's embed codes using iFrame embed method

    5. Click "OK" and then save your form.

     

    Please let us know if you need further assistance on this and we are happy to help.

    Thanks,

    Sidharth

    OK thanks.  I guess it wont work if you enter the embed code directly in the html field by clicking on the html link in the tool bar on the field itself??

    This is what I did and it didn't save it.  Will try adding the html to the text/html window at the top this time.

    Is it possible to make the form oopen in a new pop up window when an option field is selected?

    For instance...

    Could you take a minute to complete a quick questionaire?
    select YES and the new form opens in a pop up.

    We can try a workaround if you are okay to use full source code embed method. Let us know and we will help you on this.

    Thanks,

    OK thanks.
    For now I'd just prefer to stick to the form without embedding.  I made a pop-up with a link to it in a html field but I'd  rather have it as an option field.  In any case I'll just stick to the iFrame for now.
