Being a happy user of GF I am now looking into using your product for a rather extensive client project. Therefore I need to sort two main things out:
A) Multiple Step Forms (weeks/monts time in between)
Our contest-registration process is divided into three steps where each form needs to act separately (form completion triggers email-notification) but the data collected is meant to be combined into a single data-set.
Is this possible? I checked the forums and stumbled upon this post –> http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/multi-page-forms-2
Regarding the soultion with separate forms (see last post by Chris):
- Can I provide the user with a link to the next form and carry on the entries made? How? Is it safe (= practical enough) to use query strings attached to a link in the notification email?
- Wouldn't this result in duplicate entries meaning having to sort three different forms which actually belong to one user / one entry? Can I delete the first-step-form upon completion of the next one?
B) Field entry verification through externally generated field values (via database
Our contest-registration incorporates a user-registration on the main site. The site doesn't run WordPress, so there is no easy option to combine the data sets. Because we would like to limit the entries to the second form to registered users we'd need a (text-)field which is fed by our main user database and verifies the entries made by simple comparison. Optional add-on: Do not allow duplicate entries.
Would love to hear from you. I am aiming for the Development Package and am sure this can be done with GF – I just need to know for sure.
Thanks & Regards,
