Creating a Product Survey

  1. Before we jump in and start working with GF, I'd like to make sure this would work and is a good solution.

    We need to associate a survey (a couple of Likert prompts and a few text fields) to a few hundred products (made from custom types) to create a rating system. I just want to follow up here and make sure that:

    1) form fields like a dropdown of products (or a hidden field) can be set based on the page/product it appears on


    2) can each product programmatically create its own form from a survey template?

  2. Anything?

    If I could get a response to either question, we would shell out for the Dev license right away. The lack of response is sort of disheartening.

  3. So, it's been a week.

    Should I assume that's a no to both and move onto another plugin?

    Sorry about the delay. The answer to both of your questions is no, though.

    You can't programatically create a form currently, and it would require custom code to load each drop down based on the page you are on.

  5. Thanks for the response.

    If it's okay, a followup question/clarification. I'm okay with some custom code for the templates we are creating.

    I suppose what I'm asking is if a query param could be used to set a hidden field or select an item in a dropdown within a form. Just want to make sure there's nothing that prevents that outside nudge.

    Yes, you can detect what page the form is on, and depending on the page, you could have it load different options into a dropdown or a hidden field using gform_pre_render.
