    I work for a philanthrop organization who is thinking about switching over to Dynamic Forms to handle registration for a community leadership program we have....

    So far, the migration away from our old form is going well, except I am concerned that since the form is so long (we ask quite a few questions) some might start and then leave before they complete.  Our old form software had a Save data button on every page that would save the data.

    I know how to use the Form events to get it to save data and fire off an email to the user with an edit link, but how might I tie this to an HTML button (or anything) that might say something like Save and then go ahead and save the current responses.

    Any help much appreciated!

    HI, if you want to handle registration information, you would be best suited using our sister product Dynamic Registration which is built to handle user registration / profile properties. This way, even if you have a lot of fields, as long as all the fields are not required, they an simply enter anything that is required without responding to all the fields, click on "Submit Registration" or "Update Registration" and it will automatically save whatever is filled out. The user can go back to the same page and fill out more information at a later time/date,etc. -- David

    Thanks for the quick response. Just for clarification, the angle is that I would use Dyanmic Registration in conjunction with Dynamic Forms - or Dyanmic Registration would be the preferred platform.

    Actually, I've just done further research and you can also use Dynamic Forms to fire off an email for user to fill out the rest of the information. Please check out our form demo 23 for setting up email events using the EditLinkURL and ViewLinkURL tokens.

    Once again, thanks for quick response.

    I have looked at the demo you provided and got very excited with the capability. I have made the form fire off an email using the form completion events. Works awesome if the user makes it down to the submit button.

    But, if the form they have to fill out is long and time consuming, and they dont make it to the submit button - I believe they lose everything (lets say they click to another page).

    What I want to do is put maybe a HTML button (which is on the Data Springs menu) that states Save Data periodically through the form. I think this is doable, I would just need the code that I could attach to the HTML button that would do the same thing as the Submit button.

    When I mouse over the submit button, I see some javascript code.....can I just copy this over, or can you give me any guidance on what code I might be able to attach to this button somehow that will recreate what the submit button accomplished?

    Or, any other angle I might use?

    Thanks!

    HI, okay in that case try the following:
    Create a text/html field and using the Rich Text Editor "Source" option, type in something like (you know, the HTML source of an image submit button):

    http://www.htmlcodetutorial.com/for...UTTON.html

    //

    and then in the client side event under Advance Field Option, type in:

    javascript:WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions(new WebForm_PostBackOptions("dnn$ctr743$DynamicForms$lnkSave", "", true, "DynamicForms_743", "", false, true))

    NOTE: to get the correct elementID, you can VIEW SOURCE on your browser and search for the "Submit" href link and copy the actual link to simulate the "Submit" link. -- David

    This worked like a charm! Your reward for being so prompt and correct, another questions!

    Below is a link to my test form:
    http://www.tfff.org/Institute/FILPF...fault.aspx

    I have a Form Completion event that sends an email to the email address. What I would like to do is that when they click on the Send Me Registration Info it emails them, but after this if they click on the Save Responses it doesnt email them, it just saves the data.

    Any ideas on how I might do this?

    The things I have tried is to use the question event to update a field. So when they clicked the Send Me Registration button, I created a question event that tried to update a hidden field....at first this was a yes/no radio button....

    Do you have any angles for me on this?

    Yes, this is possible with some creative thinking but I do have some questions:
    1) must a person be registered on your site to fill out this form or will this form be visible to unauthenticated users as well?
    2) when a person clicks on "Send ME Registration" button, what other form completion events do you have besides the email completion event?
    3) problem here is that everyone of your "save responses" and "Send ME Registration" is simulating the form submit so all the form completion events will fire
    4) what you may need to do is create a hidden field, let's say call it "Trigger" and have it default to "Yes". Also set it to retrieve from querystring variable.
    5) In your email completion event, set it to trigger based on "Trigger" field of "Yes"; also be sure to pass along this querystring variable along with the EditLinkURL (ie: $(EditLinkURL)&Trigger=No
    6) This way, when the user clicks on the Email Link to get back to the form to continue filling out other stuff, Trigger is now set to No and the email event will not fire. -- David

    Working on your solution above, thanks! For some reason though, I cant seem to get it to Save the text value of Yes in a hidden field when they click on the Send Me Registration info.

    When I edit the form, I see the hidden field, and I see the text of Yes within the field as defaulted. But, when I click the Send Me Registration info, and then go back to view the results, the Yes is not being saved, hence the Form event never fires off.....

    Any ideas on this?

    HI, is it a Hidden Field or another field that is set to hide until triggered by a question event? Also, can you change the sort order of this hidden field and make it top of the list? -- David

    I have it set to Hide From Anonymous Users and Retrieve Values from Query String. Default value is Enter Options and set to Yes. I moved the sort order to the top, and it still doesnt retain values when I click on the Send Registration Info.

    If you would be so kind, and willing, I might be able to configure permissions so you can take a look if you so desire. Thanks for your assistance.

    HI, that won't work since users are anonymous to begin with.
    1) make sure it's a "HIDDEN FIELD" type
    2) DO NOT HIDE IT FROM ANYONE
    3) you should now see it keeping it's value on submit

    You are knocking out my issues like Mike Tyson! Your a champ!

    Ok, another issue for you...the email is now triggering off, but the link is not working to take them back with the query string variable......

    Here is the link
    http://www.tfff.org/Institute/FILPF...ionInfo=No

    Retrieve values from query string is enabled for this field.....the field name is correct.....
    Here is how it is setup within the form event... $(EditLinkURL)&SentRegistrationInfo=No

    Can you see anything wrong in this champ?

    Hi, your URL is incorrect. The first querystring should be a ? and following variables would be a &. Another words, after the Default.aspx should be a ?

    Hello! We had a pretty successful online registration season using dynamic forms.

    I am now trying to setup for next season, and having some problems with the submit code. i made a copy of the working form, which used the following code on a html button to force a submit.
    javascript:WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions(new WebForm_PostBackOptions("dnn$ctr854$DynamicForms$lnkSave", "", true, "DynamicForms_854", "", false, true))

    My question is will the above code work on the form i copied (url below), or do i need to modify the code? i recently upgraded to 3.4, will this effect anything?

    Ok, I was able to resolve a couple of issues.....I am now using the Execute submission event for a question which solved one of my issues.....

    The other issue I have left is that I have a long application form that needs a "Save" button here and there....When someone clicks this button all it does is Saves the Data they have typed in so far, and preferably keeps them on the same form so they can continue to type (awesome if we could have something popup that says data has been saved but not necesseary).

    I am currently on version 3.4. Last time the way I accomplished this was to use some Postback code in a html button (see above) which seemed to do the trick. How might I do it this time around?
