This is what I'm attempting to accomplish.
The first step would include the necessary fields to create a user. I would like the user to move to step 2 and have his account automatically created. Users cannot view the remaining steps unless they are registered/logged in. I would like a welcome email (with user credentials) to be sent once they move from step 1 to 2.
Here is the path I'm going down now, am I over complicating things?
I have created two separate forms:
Form One (Registration):
I've created one form that includes all fields to register a user. This form redirects to a page with the second form (The application)
Form Two (Application)
This is the entire application (multi-step). This form requires a user to be logged in to complete.
How do I get the user to be automatically logged in when they proceed to step 2. My redirect takes them to the application page but it wants them to login to see it.
Some of the application includes fields they created in the registration form, I would like to pass this user info to auto populate these duplicate fields.
Can this be accomplished using a single form? Am I going down the right path above? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
