    Can I have my website users select choices from page to page with a prepopulated form at the end?

    Asked by Swags on June 22, 2011 at 01:40 PM

    I am not an expert web designer by any stretch of the imagination.  I am using a program that does not require code which is making my life a whole lot easier.  I am making a website that allows my users to completely customize a patio and submit their proposal to my company.  I want them to choose their preferred pattern from a drop down menu, click a button to send them to the next page of the website where they will chose their preferred texture from a drop down menu, and so on....

    At the very end, I want the thank you screen to have a form with their choices prepopulated in their respective places, that way they can edit them if they feel like it.  I cannot for the life of me figure out how to do this.  I have not published my site to the internet yet so it does not have a URL (I will be publishing it withing a day or 2 so enable hyperlinking between pages).  Is there any way for me to do this?  Simple workarounds would be ideal but at this point I will settle for any help I can get.  Thank you!

    Hi,

    I apologize for the delayed response but looking at the other questions that you have opened, it appears that you were able to implement a solution for your form's pagination, and that is by using Page Breaks.

    With regards to the thank you screen with the prepopulated form: I think it can be made possible by using a php page that will fetch the submission ID and form ID from the form, and use those values to redirect the user to the form's edit link.

    See this sample form to see what I mean. Upon testing with a clone of your form though, I found out that the edit links do not work as it should on fields that are conditionally hidden. So I removed the conditions in your form's clone and it worked perfectly fine.

    Let me know if this solution would be good enough for you so I can give you the instructions on how to implement it.
