Multiple forms that link from a 'progress' page

  1. Hi, I have just purchased developer license and I am looking to fulfill the following brief and wondered if you could suggest the best possible way to go about it:

    My Client wants a site (to be available on ipads at an expo). A user goes up to the ipad, registers their details, logs in and are then taken to a page that contains 5 mini-surveys. They dont have to to fill in all of the surveys (but would be nice if they did) and at the end of each mini survey it will take them back to the page where they can choose another. What I don't want them to do is to submit a survey more than once, and perhaps once they have completed, say, Survey 1. it redirects them back to the main page and marks Survey 1 as been completed/disabled. Can you let me know if this is possible or is there a hack way around it?

    Would each survey link just be a link to a certain page in a multi-page form?

    Many thanks for your time.

  2. These would need to all be individual forms. I'm thinking you could then use a tutorial created by gravitywiz.com to limit a user submission:

    http://gravitywiz.com/2012/11/06/better-limit-submission-per-time-period-by-user-or-ip/

    So you can have a page that lists the links to the survey pages and upon form submission sends them back to that main form list url. If they try to click on the same survey page it will show them the "limit" message specified.

    This tutorial works for registered users on the site, which sounds like that wouldn't be an issue since you mention they will be logging in.

  3. Thanks Rob - I actually have been giving that a try. Do you think there be anyway to give a class or something to the links when they are redirected back that shows their progress through the individual forms?
