    Is this possible with Jotform?

    Asked by parentyourbest on April 26, 2011 at 06:15 PM

    I am a soccer coach and would like to create an online coaching platform with my players for mental development.  With that said, is it possible to do the following....

    create a page (form) of questions that the player has to answer...all text message fields so maybe a total of ten (one for each question/mental exercise) then when the player is finished, he can hit the submit button which would send me their answers.  HOWEVER...the page doesn't erase with their answers, so each time they login to their page, they can see their answers along with my replies.


    Is this possible?

    THANK YOU!

    Hi Jeremy,

    I can't see this being possible with Jotform, at least not exactly like what you want to achieve. What's possible is  generating a single report page for all your players' submission entries, and being able to edit those submissions and add comments of your own.

    Let me know if you're interested on this solution so that I can provide you with the steps.

    Regards,
    Neil

    Hi Jeremy,

    Watch these screencasts to learn how to do this:

    Add edit links on the notification emails - so that you can edit the submission entries to add your comments

    Create a report page - for your players to see their submissions including your comments

    Editing a submission - how to add your comments

     

    Here is the example form, and the submissions report page for your reference.

    If you need clarifications regarding the steps I have undertaken in making this possible, please let me know.

    Neil,
    This is fantastic! You continue to amaze me! Ok now for the final question
    as they say!
    Is it possible for me to create a form that has 9 statements that each have
    three possible ending choices. Each choice measures a specific attribute
    in one of three categories so for example they might be (recreational,
    competitive, elite). So for each statement the user ranks the three
    possibilities as best, better, good (or 1, 2, or 3). After completing the
    survey, the user selects submit and their answers are tallied for each of
    the three categories. So I might have answers 4 statements where the
    competitive ending was first, 2 statements where the elite ending was first,
    and 3 statements where the recreational ending was first.
    Can\'t wait to hear from you!!!
    thanks!
    Jeremy

    Hi Coach,

    Have you tried playing around with the Form Builder? I am not sure if I'm following your question but can you at least show me a mock-up form that you have made?

    Also, please take a look at survey tools. You might find them useful.


    Let us know how those tools work for you. We'll await your reply.

    Neil,

    Okay here is an example below that will help you better understand the form.

    www.parentyourbest.com/sampleform

    There are two key things to notice....

       1.  Once you select your answers, you are asked to total all of the '1's' at the bottom of each column.  So the column with the most number of '1's' is the individual's leading bias.  Can this be done?

     

       2.  So the individual doesn't figure out there is a pattern in each column, I would rather make the answers random for each statement, but still be able to create the sum total at the end.

     

    Hope this makes sense!

    Hi Jeremy,

    I apologize for not being able to reply promptly. Anyway, I have checked out your mock up form and I kind of get what you're trying to achieve. I believe that what you're trying to achieve is a little too complex for a form builder like Jotform can offer.

    First, Jotform is no built-in function to enable your users to assign scores into their choices, like #1 for c, #2 for a #3 for b. Also, it is not possible to add up those scores that they have accumulated by answering the questions.

    I have also checked out that online platform you're talking about, and to my opinion, that product and ours are way too different. It's like comparing apples and oranges. I hope you don't get offended by this post. The first solution I offered you is the best I can come up with.

    Thank you for your understanding.


    Neil
