    Multiselect Grid: Reset the grid for each submission

    Asked by monsterscore545 on September 09, 2016 at 10:34 AM

    It states with the API KEY: DO NOT DELETE. What happens to all my other forms if I do like you tell me?

    I want to use the Multiselect grid for 500 students working for me to give their availability weekly for the next 3 weeks.

    Hello, the workaround given on the other thread you replied to may only apply to that user.

    Yours on the other hand will depend on what you're trying to do, and what your workflow is.

    But to answer your question, no, it won't affect all your other forms. What will happen is that it will only affect WIDGETS that were previously added to your existing forms prior to the deletion of the API key.

    And as explained on that thread, re-adding the widgets would fix the issues (if any) since it will re-generate a new API once you re-add the widgets.

    Moving on to the Multiselect Grid widget, the sole purpose of this widget is to allow you to know which grids/cells were already selected. It works like a reservation tool, that will NOT allow other users to pick a cell/grid that was already previously selected by other respondents.

    If you need something that will allow your users to pick a slot/schedule as many times as needed, you may consider trying our Appointment Slots widget. This will allow you to set the limit per slot from 1 to unlimited (depends on what you need).

    Lastly, for us to better assist you, please provide the following if you have followup questions:

    1. What's the form you're currently working on?

    2. What is your workflow or rather, what is it that you're trying to achieve?

    We'll be waiting for your response.
