I’m currently building a website for a client that is a job posting site and have a couple questions regarding the register user addon.
* The user registers with the site (name and email).
* The user will then login and start looking through the available jobs. If they find one they like, they click on apply now which will bring up a more indepth form requesting further information (The name and email will already be pre-populated from registration). Once that’s filled in the information is stored against that user and an email is sent applying for the position.
The reason for the 2 step process is I don’t want to scare users off with an initial big form to fill out. They might not find anything they like so it’s a bit overkill.
Will user registration be able to add the additional information from the “apply now form” to the already registered user in the data base?
If the user has previously filled out an “apply now form” can this information pre-populate the next apply now form? some “apply now” forms may slightly differ due to sectors and information required so if there are additional fields can these get added against the user for later use?
Is there a way in the admin to view each user and all their current information that they’ve entered. The idea is to be able to see what jobs users have applied for, kind of like the shopping history in other plugins.
Any help with these questions is greatly appreciated.
