can your plugin allow for conditional forms to be filled out? what i mean is i have one gravity form, one of the questions allows for the person to select up to 7 check boxes, each check box would correspond to a different pdf. The form then goes through a series of questions, these questions would be populated on the various pdf’s that were selected.
Surely hope your solution will do this for me, i have been looking everywhere for this.

Yes, you can use the checkboxes and Formidable’s conditional logic to determine which of the plugin’s shortcodes are presented for a download link on a page, post or the body of an email. However, sending PDF’s by email may be a little more difficult to accomplish, we would need to know the complete workflow to determine if PDF attachments would be possible.

ok so here is a little more detail
i have a one form, i will create this in formidable pro, which i just purchased
question 1 on this form is a checkbox selection type field, each of the checkboxes relates to a specific company. the form is to complete employment applications for each of these 7 companies. so if a user wants to apply for a job at company 1 he would check that box, continue through the form and at the end when he hits submit it would merge the details to the employment application for that one company, however if the user checks more than one company the employment applications will be completed for each of the companies who was selected by the user.
then when the user hits submit, each of the completed application forms should get emailed to me, i will then forward to the specific company the form is completed for.
i will be buying your software plugin tomorrow morning, but need to make sure we can accomplish this. if it requires extra coding of any sort i am willing to pay extra for this to be implemented or coded into my sites code.
thank youSeptember 20, 2017 at 5:32 pm #16781adminKeymaster
The easiest solution is for the email to have links for you to download the applications that have been selected.
In order to attach the selected applications, you’d need to create a different form for each application and have the user complete and submit them separately, which could be made to appear seamless by changing the SUBMIT button text to NEXT>, but is a lot more work to setup.

ok so if each form is set to a different pdf employment application, most of the fields on the one form i have is identical on all of the forms and i am trying to get the user to only have to complete their information one time
so if i set it up like you are saying, is there a way to make the fields form one form populate into another form, this prevents the user from having to complete their information 7 different times

also, what if the user only selects 3 of the 7, or 2, on the NEXT button would it just continue to go through all 7 forms or would it know to only do the 2 or 3 or whatever number the user selected?
seems like just being able to code some conditional logic into the plugin would be best
this plugin here has that option but works only with gravity forms, not formidable, and it does not allow the signature option…..https://wisdmlabs.com/gravity-forms-pdf-word-document-automation-solution/documentation/ . scroll to the bottom where it talks about Conditional Mapping of PDF Templates
