Price Quote Example, Tutorials, Suggestions?

  1. In November I'm going to start building an ambitious quote tool for a client and was hoping that some examples, tutorials, code-snippets, etc might be out there or others willing to share to help expedite the learning curve (as I did with the auction concept I did here -

    Specific questions / thoughts / functionality I'm looking at / for:

    1. I've done a proto-sample to calculate a total price with the separation of field name / value - but it uses hard-coded form element names which does not scale. A javascript function or other method that would tally all fields such that client changing the contents of their form won't destroy the calculation process
    2. Methods that allow multiple forms to leverage much of the code base - if a quote system per product line for example.
    3. A 'build-on-the-fly' invoice that as the user adds / changes their selections, separate line items are shown to provide a concise breakdown of which options they chose caused what price increment. Bonus points for a style that follows the user down the screen like the add buttons menu of the GF admin interface does.
    4. Any ways to track info from abandoned submissions. One method I have done previously is an initial form to capture contact info that passes connecting entry ID via redirect to hidden field on subsequent form. Hoping there might be some other method that would capture clicked activities for the subsequent form even if it doesn't get submitted
    5. Fantastic examples of Google Analytics event integration might answer the above I suppose.

    Is there such a thing as best practice examples for Gravity Forms yet?

  2. Gravity Forms v1.5 will be released in beta at the end of the month. It does pricing calculations and has pricing fields you could use for this.

  3. SWEET! I'm more than happy to help test when it drops. Will it be available on the downloads page or must one jump through magical hoops of fire to acquire said beta.
