How can I use a section of the form for up to six times?Asked by jimbrand on April 01, 2014 at 04:43 PM
I am using the Arts and Crafts Fair form to create an entry form for our Fiber Arts Festival. On the entry form we need to collect name, address, email, phone#, and then information about the item being entered into the festival. Artists are allowed to enter up to six items. For each item, I need the classification (quilt, weaving, etc), the title of the piece, a description of the piece, a price if the item is for sale and a photo of the item. If the artist has multiple items to enter, I would like to return to the portion of the form below the artist name etc., for each item. I need to count how many items because the fee for entering items into the festival is based upon the number of entries. How can I do this?
The checkout page would include a count of items and a price dependent on the number of entries (noted in the sub title). I would also like to be able to retrieve the information that the artist enters in a .csv form to use in printed items used at the site of the festival.
And I would like to send an email confirmation of the entry(ies).
I could see that you have started the idea already on your form http://www.jotform.us/form/40905275652153
Your are on the right track on this. So, you can use the page break and tab header widget to have multiple sections on the form (in your case you need 6).
I expanded the form using your idea http://form.jotform.me/form/40906873705460?
It would be better also if you can use Calculation on th form and then summarize all calculations on the 6th page/section which could serve as the checkout page.
The form user can easily navigate to each product's section using the tab navigation on top
The only downside on this is, you cannot set this up as a payment form. It can only be used as an Order form.
This is because you cannot tie up the product calculations into the payment field (although it can be done also, but would require separate programming using the form's source code)
Hope this help. Please inform us if you need further assistance on this.
I must be really dumb, but I can't see where you made a change. How do I set up the form like you suggested. I would also like to be able to send the user to a specific page when a 'yes' or 'no' button is pushed. The way I see things now, page one (tab one) is 'ARTIST INFO' and '1st ENTRY' will go to page 2 (tab 2) and so on, but I can't seem to figure out how to do it. I understand the need for a calculation to send the user to the correct dollar amount but again I can't see haw to do it.
You can clone my test form http://form.jotform.me/form/40906873705460 to further check for details.
The change I did was just added more page break field, and then position the Tabs widget at the very last page break field
