    Request for a payment progress widget on form

    Asked by pictureperfectalbums on January 29, 2015 at 03:55 PM

    How to create a form that keeps track of payments?

    Hi there,

    Is it possible to create a form to collect money for someone that`s getting married?

    I would like to set the gift amount, let's say $500. 

    Then when people make a payment the amount is reduced all the way to zero. 

    I think I know how to achieve this manually. But is there a way to do it automatically? 

    Thank you.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    If I understand this correctly, you are looking for an option to show the payment/donation progress. Unfortunately, this is not currently an option at JotForm.

    It might be a nice idea for a form widget, so I have escalated it to our developers.

    We will let you know when we have any updates.

    That's even better than what I had in mind!

    Great to hear that.

    As my colleague Mike had mentioned, he has already raised this to our developers to take a look at and as soon as there are any news in regards to this, you will be updated about it through this thread.

    That's great. 

    Actually, would be better to call it a crowdfunding widget and give it all the features of a simple crowdfunding site.

    i.e. How many people donated, donation amounts, the possibility to edit how many people have already donated, etc


    Thank you again.
