    registration form, best way to handle families with multiple kids

    Asked by Lakeway_Soccer on April 16, 2015 at 09:42 AM

    Hi

    fairly new to this.   have created several forms over the past year on site that post results to a google spreadsheet.    the registration form I am working on now will often have families that have multiple kids playing and like to see if a way to avoid them entering all the info again?    need an entry in the google spreadsheet for each child - curious if a way to have this when they submit the form either for their to be an option to enter another child and it prefill all the fields expect child name and birthdate or if a way to have a link on thank you page that goes back to the form the just submitted with it all filled in except the child name and birthtate.      

    best way to accomplish this?

     

    thanks,

    Lindsey

    Hi,

    What you can do is to create a set of conditionally hidden fields for each additional child that are the same as your initial set of fields:

    Create a checkbox to give your users the option to add another child, then add a form collapse below that field to separate out that section:

    Then copy your your the fields for the children's information below:

    After that, setup the condition to show that set of fields if the checkbox is checked:

    Then once you have that set up, you can update the second set of fields, based on the data entered in the first:

    Just match up the first field with the second field of the same name for each one.

    Here is the resulting form with the first child setup and the parents name passed along:
