    Hello,

    I am about to purchase a plugin for my website that would let Clients/User login/Register to make a reservation.

     

    I wonder how would I connect the form to the plugin on my website, so my clients would not repeat typing in some info on the form? I also wonder if it is possible that every client under his account would be able to view previous submitted forms/Reservations? So, after submitting a form, a copy would be saved on his account.

    http://www.nyroyal.com/reservation/

    the form

    http://form.jotform.us/form/42854152064149?

     

    best,

    Hello ahmedaallam,

    Please let us know which plugin is that and we will take a look.

    Please be noted that it is not possible to get the data from any external sources. One possibility is that you create a new page and then read the data form your plugin. You can then take advantage of our "URL Parameter" feature to pre-populate your form fields with this data.

    I also wonder if it is possible that every client under his account would be able to view previous submitted forms/Reservations? So, after submitting a form, a copy would be saved on his account.

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. "Under his account" - do you mean to say the account which will be created by the plugin? There is no in built feature to save the data to any external source but do get back to us with the plugin details and we will take a look if there can be any workaround available but I would suggest you to not be too optimistic.

    We will wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    Hello ahmedaallam,

    Well I do not think that without adding custom page and custom code in your WordPress site, it will not be possible to populate your JotForm fields. If you are comfortable with PHP programming, it is possible to achieve your requirement.

    Thank you!

    It would be nice if Jotform has a paid service to complete some tasks.

    Thank you though
