Overview and Implementation

    Was trying to see if this possible with Gravity Forms

    Overview
    - 4 pages
    - page 1, all users will have to enter info
    - page 2-4, users will be provided an option if the information is relevant to them. EXAMPLE Do you have a car? Yes or No. If yes then all 20 fields related to that form will be displayed if no go to the next form.
    - page 3, repeating a form. EXAMPLE. Say the user has multiple items (cars). Would you like to add another car? Yes or No If yes, user fills out page 3 again and repeats the process until the answer is no which takes the user to form 4.

    thanks and appreciate it

  2. Gravity Forms doesn't do form repeating as you have described. It can handle everything else, except the repeating form fields and repeating form pages.

    Carl,

    Thanks for the reply. Could you suggest another way to accomplish the page 3 option? Would the 1.6 be able do it?

  4. Depends on what Fields you need to capture as far as Car information goes.

    Gravity Forms v1.6 has a new List Field that lets users input a list of items. It supports either a single input, or multiple columns of inputs like a data grid/spreadsheet where you configure how many columns and what the name of the columns are and the user can add rows.

    Other than that... there isn't currently a way to accomplish this.

    thanks carl. I think upgrading to 1.6 might be the way to go for adding fields dynamically.

    When is the expected 1.6 final release expected?
    Any major bugs in 1.6 beta?

    Carl one additional related question.

    Using the table feature in 1.6 can you the cell as one of the available fields? Ex like pull down menu or multi-select or is text input fields only allowed?

  7. I am using the 1.6beta2 and it's pretty solid already. I cannot recommend it on a production site, but if this is a site you're in the process of building, you should try it out.

    With the data grid/table/list field, the fields are all plain text with no option to embed another type of field in the grid. It's a grid of text fields.

    Chris, thanks for the insight.

    Having the list field support embedded fields would be very useful to allow users to add content dynamically. Hopefully that can be integrated in a this or a later version.

    Form repeat possibility - Is it possible?
    • with gravity forms is the workflow only linear or can the form loop back to a page break when you click on another button?

  9. The List Field does have an option to use a hook to change an input in a column into a drop down field. We also plan on enhancing this hook to support other field types in the future. So it is possible to create a multi-column list where some of the column inputs are drop downs.

    There is a next and previous button when using multi-page forms so users can move forward or backward when filling out a multi-page form.

    Carl, you said: "We also plan on enhancing this hook to support other field types in the future".

    Has this been implemented yet? If not then any idea when?
