  1. Hi, I'm hoping to use Gravity Forms as a survey. I'll have two multiple choice questions and one form field for comments. After someone has completed the survey, I'd like to display the results of all previous form entries, letting people know that 5 others voted for choice one, 3 for choice two, and then a listing of comments.

    Does anyone know how I can accomplish this? Thanks in advance for the help.

  2. This isn't currently a built in feature. You'd have to write this functionality from scratch by querying the entry data. Displaying entry information and reporting is a feature we plan on adding via an Add-On in the future. Right now it's only possible as a customization.

  3. If I do this on my own page where I pull the results from the database, where can I change the text that displays after the form is submitted. After thanking people for filling out the form, I'd like to add "see results here" text that would link to a separate page.

  4. That wording can be found on the "Confirmation" tab of your "Form Settings."

  5. Chris,

    In this post http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/conditional-logic-to-display-results you had mentioned some specific places you could point me in answer to that question. Do you have some links to help with what I'm trying to accomplish?

    Thanks

  6. I too would LOVE to have this functionality. When do you guys plan to develop the add-on for this, if I may ask? I would probably buy it without hesitation.

  7. Hi,

    I just purchased Gravity Forms and this is exactly the functionality I need: I am going to ask a series of yes/no questions where yes=0 and no=1. After they answer all the questions I want the confirmation screen to show the total count of their answers. i.e. if there were 8 no's then the total result would be 8.

    Since this question above was asked outside of the main support form, I do not see where the thread was continued on the inside. Please help as I am planning to publish this in a few hours.

    Thanks!
    Scott

  8. Scott, I replied to your other topic, but I will respond here as well since it's a regular support topic 'on the inside."

    I did what I think you want to do, here:
    http://gravity.chrishajer.com/leadership-iq-test/

    It grades the submission and returns the score and an interpretation of that score.

    Here's an explanation of that code:

    Let us know if you need help.

  9. Scott, here's another really good example of what can be done:

  10. Excellent Chris. Thank you. This is the type of functionality I'm talking about. So is that form your created, a template I could just use so I don't have to do a ton of extra coding (which I'm no expert at...)?

  11. The XML form I exported is a copy of my form. You can use it as a start. The code would go in your theme's functions.php. They are both starting points.

    You don't have to do a ton of coding or any coding really. Just edit what's there and ask questions if you have any.

  12. This is awesome Chris. Sorry for getting back it late. But it's just what I wanted. Thanks!
