I have a simple form used to submit one image at a time but users may need to submit up to eight. I need to return to the form so they can continue their submissions.

That is, unless you can tell me how to use one form with eight entry fields which will create a new record in the db for each submission.

Thank You, Jeff

Hello,

If I have understood correctly, you want the user to submit up to 8 pictures, but it musn't be recorded as one submission, but as 8(or whatever the number is) separate submissions?

In which way would you like to return to submission? By default, user will be returned to the form after submission, but if you wish to keep the form data here is what I can suggest.

If you create a menu item for the form in the Add Form tab you can set "Submission editable by user?" to "Yes". That way, after submission, when the user enters the form again or is redirected to it, his data previously entered will be shown.

Note that in order for this to work, user has to be logged in each time when he fills in the form.

Let me know whether this resolves your issue.

Regards,

Mihaela

Mihaela,

Thank you for the response.

You say: " By default, user will be returned to the form after submission, "
That is what I need only. I must have something configured incorrectly because after they submit the form it returns to a blank page where the Breadcrumb says it's still on the form. But the form is not present.

Note: the page is a BF form, but I do have CB installed. The form is not in a view.

Hello again,

Can you please tell me how you have published the form? Did you create a menu item for this form?

Yes, that is correct. I can try using it in a view if suggested. Jeff

Additional: I tried setting it up as a view of the form and referring to the view via the menu. I get basically the same behaviour.
