    FormCentral Capabilities...

    Gary_Sanders

      Hello:

       

      I have a client looking to offer an on-line promotion for a few months.   They look after a "club" and they want to offer random club non-members a free weekend promo offer at "no charge" to entice them to join.  Here is basically what my client wants to be able to do:

       

      -   We will put a link on their club web site (for this promo) linking to an on-line form (on FormCentral, for example).

      -   Once on your secure site the person will complete an on-line form (collecting such data as name, address, phone numbers, etc.) and then submit the form.

      -   Upon submitting the form the person would need to be forwarded to a page offering them the "promo coupon" to be printed so they can utilize it for the "promo" at a later date.  

      Things required:

      -   We realize we will have to "build" the on-line form on your site using the FormCentral interface.

      -   We will want the form submission and data collection process secure.

      -   The club will want full and secure access to the collected data.

      -   The "promo coupon" page would need to be linked to and stored at the FormCentral server so only people who fully complete and submit the "form" can get access to it.   They will need to be able to print the form once they are linked / forwarded to it (after successful form submission).

      -   The form must have a disclaimer / waiver area that the person must "check" that they "agree to" before the form will allow for success submission.

      -   I can only guess but the maximum form submissions will probably be less than 3000.

      I need to know if FormCentral can provide this service and what the costs will be to do so.

       

      Thank you in advance.

          Hi Gary,

           

          Let me go through each bullet point.

           

          - We will put a link on their club web site (for this promo) linking to an on-line form (on FormCentral, for example).

          - Once on your secure site the person will complete an on-line form (collecting such data as name, address, phone numbers, etc.) and then submit the form.

          - Upon submitting the form the person would need to be forwarded to a page offering them the "promo coupon" to be printed so they can utilize it for the "promo" at a later date.

           

          This workflow is supported by FormsCentral.

           

          Things required:

          - We realize we will have to "build" the on-line form on your site using the FormCentral interface.

           

          Correct. To have FormsCentral host the form you must author it using our service.

           

          - We will want the form submission and data collection process secure.

           

          Please refer to the following document: http://forums.adobe.com/docs/DOC-1384

           

          - The club will want full and secure access to the collected data.

           

          Access to the collected data requires that users sign in using a FormsCentral account ID. Users that are only accessing the collected data can use a free FormsCentral account.

           

          - The "promo coupon" page would need to be linked to and stored at the FormCentral server so only people who fully complete and submit the "form" can get access to it.   They will need to be able to print the form once they are linked / forwarded to it (after successful form submission).

           

          Hosting the target of a post-submission redirect is not something that FormsCentral supports. You have a couple of options if you don't want to host the page that contains the promotional information:

           

              1. FormsCentral forms allow you to present a confirmation message to people who complete the form. You might be able to use this feature to present the promotional information.

               2. FormsCentral forms allow you to email a submission receipt to people who complete the form. To do this you must have a field on the form that collects the filler's email address. You might be able to use this feature to present the promotional information.

           

          - The form must have a disclaimer / waiver area that the person must "check" that they "agree to" before the form will allow for success submission.

           

          This is accomplished by adding a "Single Checkbox" field to the form and making it required. Users will be prevented from submitting the form if the checkbox is not checked.

           

          - I can only guess but the maximum form submissions will probably be less than 3000.

           

          If you expect more than 500 submissions, you should sign up for a FormsCentral Plus account. The pricing details can be found here:
