[closed] WISHLIST COMMUNITY (NEXT RELEASE)

    Hi guys, I intend to make a list of improvements that we wish for the next release (be clear and concise)

    -Send Email entry (highly important!) (in manage_entries area and email field)
    -Search (in view entries)
    -Duplicate form (to save time :-) )
    -Random Button Field (a hidden field with random number) (this can be useful to make a request forms and tracking)
    -View individual entry (without login)(this could be useful to share information)

    And I can think of many more... but is not a christmas petition! :-)
    We need make requests that can be useful in general to everybody.
    Yuniar, when the next release? tell us, we are impatient!

    Sorry, I can't give you any date yet, but feel free to post any ideas here.

    I can't promise to implement all request but feature which is requested by many users is most likely to be implemented :-)

    Thanks!

    yuniar, I have a request. I just created a form for a contest that Blogcritics is running. The contest is for the U.S. only, but I still want to use the "Address" form object. I notice every form field on the page gets its own ID, so I have used CSS to hide that from field. However your field labels do not have their own ID either. So I cannot hide that with CSS. Could you add an ID to the field label DIV tags just as you have for the field DIV tags already? Here you can see how I have hidden Country but cannot hide "Country" here:

    http://meancode.biz/client/forms/view.php?id=3

    Being able to duplicate a form would be nice too. It would have saved me a bit of time today.

    Thanks,

    Ken,

    You are right, that DIV should have its own ID. Sorry for this.
    For now, I can only suggest to modify the php code which generate that address fields.

    It should be around line 1312 in includes/view-functions.php file. Here is the snippet:

    <div class="right">
    	<select class="element select medium" id="element_{$element->id}_6" name="element_{$element->id}_6">
    	{$country_markup}
    	</select>
    	<label for="element_{$element->id}_6">Country</label>
    </div>


    Simply add an ID to that DIV, and you can use $element->id as part of your id.

    Ability to duplicate a form is definitely coming for the next version.

    Another suggestion. In the automated emails that get sent out, could you add, in the footer, a link to the MachForm login page?

    Thanks.

    I'm actually thinking to provide a simple template system, so you can customize the content of the email from admin panel easily.

    Our 3 wishes would be:

    1. In the address to also have a COUNTY field
    2. In the TIME making SS (seconds) optional
    3. Ability to make a multi-page form.

    Example for #3. A car insurance site that splits the questions (form) into multiple pages (helps with longer forms)

    A client has asked me for a multipage form, so I'd join in that request.

    2. Access to HTML surrounding form
    3. Select all submitted entries at once for deletion

    Here are the top 3 items I am interested in:

    1. Multipage forms
    2. Branching logic based on answers
    3. Multiple, "repeatable" sections (for example, adding multiple "jobs" to a resume, or multiple "children" to people in your family

    1. Multipage Forms
    2. Search (from the front end allowing visitors to search the form's Db and be presented with a search results window)
    3. Ability for users to edit their own entries (using their own U+P)

    I see my multipage forms suggestion is really a popular suggestion. I really need a county field in the address if possible also for our Job applicants.

    1. Preview page for user to preview before submission.
    2. Auto responder option - after suder submits, the get a 'Thank You' email with the details of their submission.

    Multipage-Forms

    Wenn can we expect the new version?

    Posted 13 years ago #

    1. Email templating for users after submitting (this is technically possible with a hack currently, but would be useful).
    2. Option to POST form to another address (so forms can be used with other APIs): This would allow connectivity to some CRM's and other systems. This could be extended to provide control over the INPUT element generally.
    3. Chained forms. Instead of having multipage forms, or branching logic, combine the two allow forms to be chained together based on logic. This could be a simple "Form A => Form B => Form C" (multi-page form) or a more complex "A=>B or C or D=>E" logical structure based on field entries.

    Its still a great product, even without these enhancements, however...

    What about multilanguage ?
    I believe that would attract more customers.
    Maybe using some kind of centralized text & messages config file that can be chosen somewhere in the form create/edit script.
    I volunteer to translate it into spanish...
    anyone for french/italian/german ?
    Thanks for your time

    I'd like to have the following features added:

    1: The ability to choose to have attatchments sent as 'an attatchment to the email' that gets sents after someone uses the form.
    2: The ability to copy a form.
