ericssonukfso created the topic: Reload existing form data

Hi Folks,

I've read a number of posts here but been unable to find a solution. Our users need the ability to submit multiple forms, but ideally they also need the ability to edit an existing submission. I'm aware of the Joomla "Submission editable by user?" parameter, but as far as I can tell that stops the user submitting new entries.

I'm assuming that the Breezing Forms code must already include functions to pre-populate a form with existing data or the above wouldn't work. I can easily create an index page for my users to see their existing form submissions, then pull the id field from the joomladb_facileforms_records database table when they click the respective form, but is there any way of using that id value to pre-populate or pre-load the form interface with the existing data?

Ideally this may also help me with a 'save for later' button. They could submit the form part filled and return later to complete.

Thanks,
Richard

Richard,

There may be a couple of solutions for your project, depending on what you need....

1) Please read this topic till the end. Inside you will see how you can built your own "Save Form Progress" functionality.

2) If you need your users to be able to edit their past submssions you can install ContentBuilder. This component offers an option to create a View based on BreezingForms form and therefore to see list of submitted records which you can then edit.

If you have any other questions, let me know.

Regards,
Mario

Thanks Mario. While searching for a solution I'd come across the post mentioned in 1) and saving the data shouldn't be an issue. It was more the recalling of the saved data at a later date that was my concern (e.g. if our engineer lost their mobile connection part way through the form). Thanks for the tip in 2), i'll take a good look at content builder, it sounds like that should solve our problems.

Hi,

Great that you like ContentBuilder !
It could be the tool you need for your project.
As it has a bit of a learning curve I'm sure you will have more questions about it, so please let me know if you get stuck.

Regards,
Mario
