    Is it possible to related one form to another form.

    Asked by huggysh on June 16, 2011 at 04:34 AM

    Hi

    My scenario is as follows...

    Scenario 1

    I need to present a very basic registration from.  Depending on how this form is completed I need to re-direct them to another form... However, the new form should contain the basic details which was submitted previously PLUS present them with another list of fields which need to be completed.  

    Scenario 2

    Once that information has been received and the SUBMIT button pressed, that data should then be (a) Stored in my online MySql database and (b) another email sent to others depending on which email address the user has submitted.

     

    Is JotFrom able to complete the above scenarios?

     

    I thank you in advance for your feedback

     

    Regards

    Hi Steven,

    First off, we'd like to thank you for taking interest in Jotform's services. Now, let me answer your questions to the best of my knowledge.

    Scenario 1

    Redirecting to a different form depending on the information filled can be made possible by using Conditions that will validate rules that have you set before changing the Thank You url.

     

    Take a look at this sample form which redirects the user to another form depending on the option selected.

    As for passing the values from the first form to the second form, you would need to create a PHP bridge page which will fetch the data entered on the first form and then pass it onto the second form using query strings.

    Click here to view a sample form that does that effectively.

    For more information about that topic, please visit this thread.

    Scenario 2

    A can be accomplished by taking advantage of the http send post function for the forms. Data entered in the form will be sent using http post to your customized PHP page that will dump the information to a MySql database. Please be aware that this will entail a lot of work, especially since it requires you to do your own PHP programming.

    B is possible, again, using conditions.

     

    When a notification mail is involved in a condition that you have set up, it will show up in the emai alerts list like this:

     

    Hope I was able to answer your questions. Please let us know if you have further questions regarding this matter.
