composer created the topic: Saving Information in DB on each MultiPage Step?

I want to build a multipage survey. I want to store the data in the database everytime the user clicks next. If the user somehow doesn't want to fill in the next screens, I still want to have the results of the first screen(s). Is this possible with BF?

(I also posted this question in a 2 year old thread, but since I don't see this thread popping up, I also start a new topic).

The answer to your question is located here:


Hi,

in the breezingforms' menu item, there is an option "user editable forms". If you enable it, it will make it possible to continue unfinished forms. This will only work with users that are logged in.

For the "fill in and come back later" requirement, you need to add a custom submit button, to
advanced => more options => action => check "custom" => check "click" => click "create code framework"

Inside the generated function, right after "case 'click':", add this
ff_submitForm();

This will submit the form and turn off all validations. While the regular saving button will fire the validations.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, users that fill in the form are not logged in. So I guess the answer to my question is no. And the only way to get the results from separate pages is to create separate forms and link them together. Correct?
