    Passing values from one form to the other

    Asked by TitusN on February 14, 2014 at 05:11 PM

    Hello Tom, 

    This is the continuation of the thread. 

    Please add you comments below and I will proceed to complete the project. 

    Thank you for your patience through this - It would also help if you would share a desired turnaround time - I certainly don't want to delay your project. 

    Thanks

    That is great! 

    Only a few small things now:
    1) Instead of the displaying the duration on the first form, could that display the price instead?
    2) On the Terminal field, the values need to be 'Please Select; Terminal 1; Terminal 2; Terminal 3
    3) The State/Province field, is that something that can't be removed?
    What happens once you click submit? (Could that be changed to 'Pay Now') does the customer receive a message with a reference? As well as the email confirmation that needs to be sent.

    Hey Tom, thanks for the additional details. I'm certain my colleague has received a response from you as well that we get from replies to threads. You can expect a reply from him about your request as soon as he has something further for you and thank you for any patience you can give us until then.

    Hey Tom,

    That could certainly be arranged.

    It will make it difficult for you to edit the prices should you need them to change, but it can be done.

    The state/provice field can be removed

    Here's the form now: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/40423544023947

    From what I've gathered, here's how you want things to run:

    1. Calculation form gets the difference between two dates - then applies the price for the duration, displays it to the user

    2. Second form collects more details in three stages, then charges the form respondent through paypal - no need for an address field, right?

    The requirements might have evolved since we started this.

    In addition to that, that would carry the price through to PayPal wouldn't it?
    Cheers.

    Hey Titus,
    1) Yes that's correct.
    2) Once you click submit (Could that be changed to 'Continue to Payment') would that then take you through to PayPal where the user can then insert card details without logging into an actual PayPal account if they didn't want to use their PayPal account?Also, will the price be taken through to PayPal?

    Hello Tom,

    I've been backed up for the last couple of days - we have a lot of people to serve, and sometimes there's a lot to work on.

    Sorry about the delay - I will work on the demo over the weekend and send it.

    Hello Tom,

    Well, I think I got it down to functionality and a little design - still some work to do, but we need to put both form on your pages/test pages so that the behavior can be tested:

    Quote Form: http://jotformpro.com/form/40402149197957

    Payment Form: http://jotformpro.com/form/40423544023947

    For the two forms to be linked, we would have to place them onto the requisite pages and then add the conditional rules that will connect the two forms by prepopulating values.

    If you do not mind, I will copy the source code from your website and run the tests.

    Hi Titus,
    That's awesome mate, on the quote form that would just need to say 'Book Now' rather than 'Get a Quote'.
    My site isn't live at the moment, this one has just been created in Muse, would it be possible to use Business Catalyst and host it as a Temp site?
    Once the Make Payment button has been clicked, would that take you to PayPal?
    Cheers,
    Tom.

    Hello,

    My apologies.

    Right now, you need to have a test location where we can embed the forms, I would reccomend your live site on some obscure test pages like yourdomain/testlocations/001.html -  or something like that-We can add a 'no follow' statement to prevent Google from crawling the test pages.

    If you have that, please advice.

    You can clone the forms into your account to begin the tests.

    When you do, please open a new ticket - and we shall advice on how to achieve a working set of forms.

    The reason why this is important is because URL prepopulation depends on the domain which your website will be located, and a live test would be great to make sure that all possible quirks are addressed.

    Looking forward to your response.

    Hi Titus,
    I can pay for hosting now and upload the site using FTP to 34sp.com?
    Then create some test pages on Muse?
    Cheers.

    Hi Tom,

    I suggest you also start setting up and uploading the form in your new website.

    Then open a new thread about the new inquiiry.

    Make sure to mentioned here the new thread you created so that our colleague TitusN can easily find it and respond also.

    Thanks.

    What do you mean by setting up and uploading the form? I don't have access to the form?
    I will create a new thread.

    Hello TomCrellin,

    I believe that my colleague meant is that you should clone the form in your account and upload it in your web page (test location) as suggested by TitusN.

    Here are the forms:  http://www.jotformpro.com/form/40402149197957
