Form with a multi-tabbed layout?

  1. Michael

    Hello,

    I've been asked to create a form that spans across tabs on a page. The multi-tabbed layout is useful in our business as it makes long form surveys less daunting, and the entire
    layout more use-friendly. Is this something that is possible with Gravity Forms? If so, what do you recommend for achieving it?

  2. There's no provision to do something like this out of the box with Gravity Forms, but with some effort I'm sure you could pull it off. I've seen a few really complex form layouts that people have implemented.

    I can't recommend any one way to do this, but you'd probably want to go with some type of jQuery plugin like this one. It looks like it has a lot of options on how to implement it and is pretty flexible, even allowing custom html.

    This may be a bit easier once the 1.3.13 version is released with the inline HTML block capabilities. Again, I haven't tried this at all so I can't really tell you how easy it would be for sure.

    If you're looking to do a multi-page type form (in my opinion a much better choice than tabs) one of the forum members has put together a script that will enable you to do that.

    If you do end up needing help getting something like this implemented, I would recommend getting in touch with David via email at david@ounceoftalent.com. He does some pretty amazing stuff with Gravity Forms and I'm sure he could rock it out for you.
