Use multiple gravity forms attached to custom post types to submit to Freshbooks

  1. Gaslight

    Hi there,

    this is my first post in the support forums, I just purchased the plugin and so far I'm quite impressed by it - I already implemented in no time in some websites I manage; however, now I'd like to try thinking of some more advanced use I could make of it

    I will explain briefly what I want to achieve. It's close to a shopping cart but it's not (no checkout, no need to save finalized submissions for the user, no need for the user to be registered/logged in). Basically I'd like to produce a detailed quotation request from multiple gravity forms and when finalized, send it to Freshbooks as an Estimate.

    With different custom post types I have several posts which include certain custom metas, such as prices, options, details. For each of these posts I would like to attach a gravity form where the user can express his preferences, including other data, and submit the form to a sort of cart. The cart would summarize user choices and eventually update them, then, when ready, user can fill in his contact details and then submit the final form. The submission would be sent to Freshbooks / emailed / recorded in gravity forms or perhaps I could make other uses of the data. That's it.

    I'm not sure if this is achievable only with Gravity Forms or I need some cart plugin or yet I have to think of a customized solution / ask someone.

    Any advices?

    Thank you!
