    sub-forms, popup forms, miniforms - Ideas needed

    Asked by riksaga on April 11, 2011 at 02:29 PM


    I have multi-page forms for student registrations that is databased AND emailed for printing & signing.   The Form data I am having trouble with is "StudentMedicalCondition".

    2 issues:

    1. Only display form fields if a medical condition exists. (20 optional fields need filling)

    2. Only submit the fields via email if the medical condition exists.


    Parents are lazy so they need to complete registration in 1 session and they will skip any secondary forms given the opportunity.  (a redirect to a secondary form always gets skipped).


    What I think I need is  some kind of sub-form / popup-form / mini-form that interupts the  the main form is sent seperately.


    Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

    1.  You can accomplish this by using the Conditions Wizard to show form fields when a condition is met. For more information you may visit this page - Conditional Logic on Forms

    2.  Again, this is possible via the Conditions Wizard. First you need to create notification emails, and then set a condition to only send that particular email when a certain rule is followed.

    I think there is no way to implement a pop-up from within a form. You may instead create a mini-form section within form, hide them by using Conditions and make them appear if a certain condition is met, like for example, if a field is filled out.

    Let us know if you have more questions.
