    Linking from One Form To Another

    Asked by stmca on May 14, 2012 at 05:40 AM

    Hi I am trying to create an online purchase order system but I would like to link from one online form to another

    At the moment we have a ten iten form as this only fits onto a single a4 paper when printed,  but if ther person whants to add more item to the order at the moment they need to start the process again from the beginning

    What I would like to achieve is - If ther person fills in all the order form  and they want to add more they pick from a drop down box I need to add more items or something similar,  That form is then submitted and the order and supplier details move to the new form.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks Paul

    Hi STMCA;

    Thanks for contacting us. This can easily be achieved by creating condition and 'skip to next page' features in form 1 that will reditrect users to consecutive forms.

    Kindly follow the guidelines in the following links for previously answered question;

    I hope these information helps.

    More materials in addition to above;

    Look at the example form below where  Next buttons have been renamed to Go, and it is also possible to hide the Back buttons (here is tutorial https://www.jotform.com/help/119-Page-Breaks-How-to-Use-Them-Like-a-Pro)

    Example:

    You can Clone my example form to check how it is made.

    This answer was given by my colleague Mike_T on an ealier post.

    Anyway to do this via separate forms via some sort of selection requirement/gateway?

    The problem with this one form approach for us will be that we have multiple "rates" for our services that are adjusted/discounted/raised on a per unit basis based upon high and low seasons as well as customer selection for duration of our service agreement.

     

    for example, we offer hourly, daily, weekly and weekend rates. anything less than 5 days and more than 3 hours rental is calculated on a daily rate basis. 7 days gets a discounted weekly rate. weekend gets a high season rate increase on a per day basis which means each rental day involving a saturday or a sunday will cost $x "weekend fee" more. it will get too complicated with conditions given all the other conditions that we already have to setup that I'm not sure they will be handled properly... or even there is a way to make it all happen in one single form.

    Please review this article. I think this is what you were looking for.

    Here is the sample form for that http://www.jotform.me/form/22562702027446

    When using payment fields in your payment form, you can also add a lot of payment options on it.
