    Multiple Spinners, Multiple Pages

    Asked by dougboccabella on March 06, 2015 at 11:56 AM

    Can you have 40 different spinners over 40 different web pages that calculate? 

    Essentially I want to create 40 different counters (which I have done), but just have 1 counter show up on one page and the other 39 on the remaining 39. 

    Is this possible. 

    Also, they all have to calculate at the end.

    The goal here is to have 40 different "product" pages with a spinner on each. The spinner would need to move from page to page but with a new heading. 

    So, 40 spinners over 40 pages. With the "back" and "next" functionality not only moving the form but also the webpage itself. 

    Think of it this way… School supplies. 

    Web Page 1: Pencils - Spinner Count 7 (web page shows pencils) 

    Web Page 2: Pens - Spinner Count 3 (web page shows pens) and has Counter of 10 

    Web Page 3: Rulers - Spinner Count 22 (web page shows rulers) and has counter of 32

    …. 

     

    So the form needs to move WITH the web pages in unison. But only show the spinner with which the subject heading pertains to. EG. Pens on the pens page. 

     

    Total at the end.

    Hi,

    You could use our inventory widget to keep track of the totals left in stock:

    http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/inventory

    As long as the same form is embedded to all 40 pages, the inventory widget will count down whenever one of the forms is submitted decreasing the count.

    You only need one form with one counter.  You would then embed this one form into all 40 of your pages.

    If you need different ones displayed in different pages, you would need multiple different forms to accomplish this and it is not possible to link them together.

    I hope I am understanding what you are trying to do, if I am not, let us know and we will be happy to assist you further.
