multipage web form

Question

Is there a way to create a mutlipage Datapage webform.

I am replicating a job application and there is a lot of information, free text, etc. It would be nice if I could collect it over three pages or so.

If not then I would like to be able to lay it out more like a paper form but didnt' see how to do that. I did see how to insert HTML blocks but I am not sure that will do what I am looking for.

Please advise.

BTW: This was extremely easy to set up and use for a none programmer.

Hi Swilliford,

To build a multipage form, follow the steps below:

1. Create a table will all of the fields you anticipate in your forms. All of the forms that you will build will be linked to this table.

2. Create an "Add new data" WebForm DataPage. This DataPage should not be password protected. The first form is usually the registration form where users would enter their personal information.

3. Create a "Modify existing data" WebForm DataPage. This DataPage should reside inside a folder and the folder should be password protected (authenticated). The authentication could be any for the field from the first form. This form is the second form of your multiplage form. You can to configure the first form to go to this form after the first form is submitted.

4. For each additional form in the multipage form, just create another "Modify existing data" WebForm DataPage and link it accordingly.

John:

I followed your directions and that worked. My multipage form question is a bit different:

- I don't need the 2nd page of the form to be authenticated. My new member registration includes 3 pages:

1) Page 1: general account and user info form

2) Page 2: additional fields if user elects to upgrade membership (the user shouldn't have to log in to access this form

3) Page 3: preview page, which should include all the field data from Page 1 AND -- if the user enters data on Page 2 -- all of the field data from Page 2.

On Page 3 the user will be presented with two buttons: Back (to make edits to Page 1 or 2) and Submit (to complete the member registration).

I'm also not sure how to redirect the user based on the fields displayed in the Preview page. If a user doesn't elect to \"upgrade\", then the Submit button on the Preview page should take the user to a Thank You page. If the user does \"upgrade\" then I want the same Submit button to take the user to my PayPal form to pay for the upgrade.

Any and all help will be most appreciated. I've searched through the Help docs and didn't find any info on how to do this.
