form starter widget?

  1. I'm not sure the exact terminology here, but I'm looking to have a widget that starts the form process and then sends the user to a page to finish it up. The main form would be a booking form, so basically I'm looking for a way to have the widget ask for travel dates and then the customer would pick their dates and click on the "book now" button. When they click the button it will send them to the full form on another page, where it asks from the rest of the info. Does anyone know of any way to do this with a plug-in or anything else? Open to suggestions.

    have you looked into the "conditional logic" feature on the advanced tab of each field? you can make certain fields show or not show depending on a previous answer. hope this helps

  3. That won't work, b/c the bulk of the form won't look good or work well in a widget. It's basically a 5 page form and I would want the first page to show in the widget, and then go to an actual page and get out of the widget... does that make sense?

  4. You can accomplish this with two forms. Capture the minimum amount of information with your widget form, then pass that data on to the full five page form. Allow those fields to be populated dynamically in the five page form, and use the Redirect option with a query string for the Confirmation of the widget form.
