Form tools a viable option?
#1
Hey Guys, I came across form tools today when I was looking for a script for a current project and believe it could be a good solution for what I'm needing, although I've looking through alot of the documentation I can really come to a solid conclusion on whether it would work for my purpose and figured I'd ask those here, instead of digging through the code itself.

Here's the scenario: I have a client who I'm building a site for who's intended purpose is basically a document creation and courier service, clients can register, create a document or use a pre-made template, upload additional media files, pay a fee and that document along with the media files would be delivered to the intended recipient.

On the surface it seems like much of the functionality I need is already built in, but I'm not 100% sure about that. The base site is being built on WordPress as the client wanted something cheap and easy to update, and I'm essentially building a plugin that can handle the majority of what we need to do..

Would I be able to build, with the current API, a section where the user can log in, look at their orders, modify form data if need be, or upload additional files. As well as populate order and document data into the WP dashboard via the API?

I just don't want to spend a ton of time sifting through the docs and code if this isn't something that's a viable option.. Any info is appreciated.. Thanks!

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the post!

You can actually already do this with the Submission Accounts module. What it does it convert a form submission into a simple user account, so users can log in, update whatever form data they need, upload files etc. Precisely what information, form fields etc. they see entirely depends on you.
http://modules.formtools.org/submission_accounts/

I'd definitely give that module's documentation a read over - sounds like it may fit the ticket!

Good luck. Smile
