What you should do

There are few do's and do not's to keep in mind while using AllForm Pro. What you should do is listed here.

1). Read this User Guide in it's entirety before creating any forms. You will be glad you did and it will make for a smooth and enjoyable experience with AllForm Pro.

2). Set your Preferred Default Settings before creating any forms, in particular, the Admin Email address, Admin Name, Website Name and the Website Template. This is because it is these Settings that are copied over to each new form you create. If you plan to only create 1 or 2 forms, this is not so important, however if you plan to create more than a few forms, setting the Defaults will save you time.

3). When adding additional file upload fields, make sure the name of the field is "FILEx" where x is any unique number and FILE is in uppercase. For example if you wanted to allow up to three file uploads in a form, you could use:

<input type="File" name="FILE1">
<input type="File" name="FILE2">
<input type="File" name="FILE3">


You can use as many as you think your server can handle.

4). When adding Custom form fields to any form, use descriptive field names and underscores instead of spaces. This is because the Preview Pages, Error Pages and Admin Section list the filed names adjacent to the data entered by Customers. For example, lets say you had a required field in your form that requested the Customer's Country of Birth. We suggest you use this:

<input type="Text" name="Country_of_Birth">

This way, if the Customer forgets to enter their Country of Birth, the Error page will display:

Error you forget to enter the following fields

Country of Birth

The form processor will replace the underscores with spaces. If you had entered,

<input type="Text" name="countryborn">

the error page would display

countryborn

which may not be very helpful for the Customer. So keep the form field names short but descriptive. Being concise is the key.

5). When adding Textareas (large text box fields), append "TA" to the form field name. This is so AllForm Pro's form processor knows they are Textareas and retains the line breaks in Plain Text email, HTML email and when viewing Admin Section Submissions. This does not apply to the "comments" field. For example:

<textarea name="comments"></textarea> good

<textarea name="BioTA"></textarea> good

<textarea name="Bio"></textarea> bad

<textarea name="InstructionsTA"></textarea> good

<textarea name="Instructions"></textarea> bad

6). Send us your feedback. If you purchased AllForm Pro, you have an email address to get in touch with us directly. You made quite an investment in your Multi-Page Form Handler and we want to be sure you're happy with it, with it's performance and it's usability, integrity and stability. We encourage all feedback and suggestions for improvement.

What you should not do

There are few do's and do not's to keep in mind while using AllForm Pro. What you should NOT do is listed here.

1). Do not change or alter the fname, lname and email form fields generated by AllForm Pro. They must be in lowercase and must be in your forms. They can be placed in any one of your Multi Paged forms. If you remove them, Customer Auto-responders will be sent to Admin with "No Name" as the name of the Customer. You can remove the FILE1 field and comments fields generated. These three fields have synonyms used by AllForm Pro which are displayed on Error Pages, Preview Pages and in the %%%ALLFIELDS%%% marker.

2). Do not ignore any of the pointers given in this section and the section immediately above.

Managing Single Page Forms

Viewing and Managing Single Page Forms forms is accomplished via the "Single Page Forms" page, which is the first page you see once you log in to the Admin Section. Functions available are listed in sortable columns. Click on the desired links in the row associated with the desired form.

How to redirect Single Page Forms

You can redirect the Customer to a generic Thank You page after a Single form has been successfully submitted. This can be achieved in one of two ways.

1). Enter the absolute path (starting with http://) to your Thank You page in a hidden tag in your HTML form. E.g.

<input type="Hidden" name="redirect" value="http://www.google.com">

2). In the given Form's Settings, under the "Miscellaneous" tab, in the "Redirect User to" setting, enter the absolute path to your Thank You page. E.g.

http://www.google.com

Viewing Form Submissions

Viewing Submissions made to Single Page Form is accomplished via the "Single Page Forms" page, which is the first page you see once you log in to the Admin Section. Click on the Numbers in the Submissions column in the row associated with the desired form. This will load a complete synoptic History of Submissions for the selected form in chronological order (most recent Submission last). Click on the Date of any given Submission to view it's details. Remember, the order of fields in which these Submissions are displayed is governed by your Preferred Form Field Sorting Order.

To Top

To edit a Submission made to a Single Page Form:

1). Click on "Single Page Forms" in the Admin Control Panel.

2). Click on the Numbers in the Submissions column in the row associated with the desired form.

3). Click on the Date for the desired Submission in the Synoptic History.

4). Apply desired edits.

Managing MultiPaged Forms

Viewing and Managing Multiple Page Forms forms is accomplished via the "Multi Page Forms" page, which is accessed via the Admin Control Panel. Functions available are listed in sortable columns underneath the Form Combiner tool. Click on the desired links in the row associated with the desired form.

How to redirect to next form

It is important to note that when using Multi-Page Forms you must set a value for the hidden redirect field in the HTML code generated for your HTML pages. This value must point to the next form in your Multi Page Form series. E.g.

<input type="Hidden" name="redirect" value="http://www.google.com/form2.html">

If you do not set a value for Multi-Page forms, AllForm Pro will display an error message after the form has been filled in instructing you to do so. Be sure to enter a value in the "redirect" field for each of the forms in your MultiForm series, except, unless desired, for the last Form in the series.

The redirect field must point to the HTML page you created for the next form. For example, let's say you create a 2 page series of forms. You copy the generated code for the first form to a HTML page you name form1.html and the generated code for the second form to a HTML page named form2.html

The hidden redirect field in your first form in form1.html must point to form2.html and must begin with http:// like such:

<input type="Hidden" name="redirect" value="http://www.YOURWEBSITE.com/form2.html">

Viewing Multi-Page Form Submissions

Viewing Submissions made to Multi Page Form is accomplished via the "Multi Page Forms" page, which is accessed via the Admin Control Panel. At the bottom of the "Multi Page Forms" page is a list of all Multi-Paged Forms you have created. Click on the Numbers in the Submissions column in the row associated with the desired form. This will load a complete synoptic History of Submissions for the selected form in chronological order (most recent Submission last). Click on the Date of any given Submission to view it's details. Remember, the order of fields in which these Submissions are displayed is governed by your Preferred Form Field Sorting Order.

How to add custom form fields and file uploads

When adding additional file upload fields, make sure the name of the field is "FILEx" where x is any unique number and FILE is in uppercase. For example if you wanted to allow up to three file uploads in a form, you could use:

<input type="File" name="FILE1">
<input type="File" name="FILE2">
<input type="File" name="FILE3">


You can use as many as you think your server can handle.

To Top




How to require fields

If you want some of your forms fields to be required, for either Single page or Multi Page Forms, then you specify those field names in a hidden field. Separate each field name with a comma but do not add any spaces. For example, if you had three fields you wanted required:

<input type="text" name="email">
<input type="text" name="address">
<input type="text" name="city">


....then you would specify these as required fields using the following hidden field:

<input type="hidden" name="required" value="email,address,city">

Note that in Multi Paged Forms, each form in the Series must have it's own hidden "required" tag that lists the required fields found in that form.

Download / Export Form Submissions

Exporting your submissions is achieved via the Export Wizard. Click the numbers in the Submissions column for either Single Page or Multi Page Forms. This will load a History of Submissions for the Selected Form. At the top of the page, beneath the Admin Control Panel, you'll see a link titled "Export CSV file". Click the link to load the Export Wizard.

The Export Wizard lists the fields found in your first and last Submissions. If there are additional fields in other Submissions (for example fields you have removed from your forms since first creating them), you can enter those field names in the spaces provided. The default order of fields shown in the Export Wizard is governed by your Preferred Form Field Sorting Order for the selected form.

To Export your data:

1). Enter the column position for which the fields should appear in the results.

2). Remove any fields from the Export Wizard which you do not wish to Export.

3). Scroll to the bottom of the Export Wizard and select either "Print to Browser" in which case the results are printed to your Browser window, or "Export CSV" in which case a CSV file is created and then loaded in your browser.

If Printing to Browser, view the resulting page's source code and save the file to your hard drive. The source code has each record on a separate line.

If Exporting to CSV file and you have MS Office installed on your computer, the results are loaded in an Excel Spread Sheet inside your browser. You must then save the file. If you do not have MS Office or MS Excel installed, a download dialogue box will appear asking you to save the file to your hard drive.

If the Export Wizard points you to a 404 error page or to http://www.yourservername.com/, you need to edit the afp_key.cgi file and enter your actual domain name in the $ExportURL variable on line 34. E.g.

$ExportURL = "http://www.YOURSERVERNAME.com/psjs_datalogs/afp$FolderPass/data";

The markers themselves are replaced with Customer Submitted data, allowing you personalize and customize e-mail notifications, Website Error Pages, Preview Pages and Thank You pages, including the ability to link directly to files uploaded, print just the file names and print the server paths to uploaded files.

A full list of available markers is available from with the Admin Section. Log in and click on any of the Settings links. Scroll down to the "Admin Notification Template" and click on "Full list of Markers" to pop open a new window with instructions on using the markers.
