    Hi,

     

    I outsource my web development and my developers are struggling to complete a 2 part form for me.

    You can can see an example at the following landing page www.furfrenz.com/fbt1oct/

    The intent is to capture the results of the form fill (part 1 and part 2) in one email that is sent to DropBox.

    The problem I am having is that my developers are treating it as two forms and the data is sent separately, where I can not match the name and email data with the information collected in part 2. 

    I want to design a form that

     

    1. Has two parts (less data collection at part one for higher conversions)

    2. If the customer fills in part 1 but not part 2 then it sends part 1

    3. If the customer fills in part 1 and part 2 it sends both sets of data in one email

     

    Can you please look at my page and advise what changes ares needed and or send me in the direction of a tutorial to do this please?

     

    Regards Shaun

    Hello,

    Have you considered using the page break tool?

    This tool allows to split one form into pages, in your case you would use page 1 for your current first form and page 2 for your second form.

    If you want to allow your submitters to send only the fields from the first form, all you need to do is set the fields on your second form (on page 2) as optional.

    Please take a look at this demo form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/42877235383968 and feel free to clone it to adjust it to your needs.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Thank you!

    One question; in the case where the customer fills in page one of the form, but abandons the form before filling page 2 how do we capture the data in page one iof they have not hit submit?

    In my form this is there name and email and captueing this data is important.

     

    Regards

    Unfortunately, using the solution provided by raul, there would be no way to capture the data if the user abandons the form.

    An alternate solution would be to create two different forms, with the 2nd form set as the 1st form's thank you URL.
