Allowing Multiple Data-Set Submissions for a Group of Input Fields 


A Field Set is used to group a set of input fields together to allow columns of input fields to be configured; or also allow multiple sets of data to be submitted by the sales quote recipient.  For example, if the form is a Student Registration form for training course attendees, you would need to collect the details of each student attending.  In this case you will need to allow the sales quote recipient to enter many student details such as the first name, last name, gender of students attending a course, the form would be required to allow multiple students details attending.

 

To begin, create or edit a sales quote.

Click on the orange + Insert button located between every content block while working in the Sales Quote Editor and then select ‘Add Form’ at the very bottom.

A new form block will be added to the sales quote and a green content editor tool bar when hovering on the form block.

Click on the green + Insert button.

A selection box will now appear as shown below.

Now select the option Field Set.  (You can add many Field Set(s) in a form.)

A new Field Set Label as shown below, click on the text "Field Set Label"; delete and type your own label.  In our example we will label the group of fields "Course Attendees"

As we can see below, the Field Set now has the label "Course Attendees".

Creating columns in a field set

To adjust the number of columns in a Field Set, click on the Columns Icon below and you will notice a drop down menu appears showing the available number of column settings, as shown below.

Choose the number of columns for your Field Set, in our example we have selected three columns, as shown below.

There are now three columns in the form field set and you will notice three green insert icons.

Next, click on one of the green + Insert buttons to add an input field.

In our example below we have inserted three text input fields for first name, last name and phone number

Allowing the Sales Quote Recipient to Add More Than One Set of Data

In our example we have made a form that would allow the sales quote recipient to provide the name and phone number of students that will attend a training course.  In the real world it would be likely that more than one student would attend a course, so we need to configure the Field Set to allow the sales quote recipient to add more than one student.

To configure a field set to allow multiple data entries, click on the Cogs icon on the field set panel, as shown below.

Click on the Can create multiple entries check box as shown below.

Click Save & Preview to view the form in the sales quote as the recipient would view it.  You should notice an Add button appear top right of the field set.  This is the button the sales quote recipient would click to add additional enteries in the field set.
