Forms: save to database for logged in users

Hi,

Your Forms extension is amazing but I believe that it lacks one important feature: a "save to database" option for logged in users (either for each question or each time the user goes to the next page).

Thanks for your consideration!

Hello,

Thanks for your suggestion, we will consider it
This option might work for you (multi-page only)

Thank you very much for your answer! :)

However, it only saves locally, not to database, and this would really be a "must have" feature for me.

I would be delighted if you'd consider this even as a custom development, and would gladly pay for this development.

Please keep me posted!

2 forms? 1 only for registered to access, which will save to database and 1 for guests, which will not save to database.

Hi,

I'm not certain I get your proposition - I don't think that creating 2 different forms will allow to save to database when clicking on the "next" button prior to submitting the whole form.

But please correct me if I'm wrong.

This is a great idea!

You need to create 2 forms. One form with saving data to database display only for registered users, and another form (without saving to data base) display for non registered

If your page builder doesn't allow to set permissions for page grid items as it possible in Gridbox :whistle: , you need to create 2 custom HTML modules to each module add Forms shortcodes, and in module settings set permissions - For registered and public :)



And add to page these Custom HTML modules with your forms.

Hi Artem,

Thanks for your message.

I believe we are not talking about the same thing: the issue here is that I have a long form (let's say 10 pages) that registered users have to complete.

Since this form is long, users may not be able to fill them in one single session and may want to resume it at a later time, and sometimes on another computer (or smartphone).

Since the form does calculations based on different fields, it can hardly be split.

And users usually don't click on a "Save" button anyway on a web form.

Therefore, it would be great if the component could save data to the database, at least each time the "Next" button, which allows to proceed to the next page, is clicked.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.
