Event Submission Form

Recommended Posts

When you scroll down a page to fill out all of the fields in a Trumba submission form and hit next, you are sent to the approval screen, where you have the option to submit or go back. The problem is that if the form is long, you will not be able to see the submit button or any of the text on that screen. Could you fix that so when someone hits the next button, the anchor is the top of the form on the next page, similar to when you click an event on a calendar spud and go to the detail page? You always go to the top, the event title.

Have you tried changing the height of the event submission form on your page? It is currently "height: 775", however it is hard to know what the height should be as you will no idea how long the submission will be based on the contents of the Notes field. I see you have some instructions below the form and you may want to put these instructions within the event submission form, possibly in the Before Submitter Section. Another idea would be to place the event submission form within a DIV tag or iFrame and possibly use scroll bars?

Thanks for the reply Steve. I may try putting the form on a separate page. Although, I would like it better if the user was placed at the top of the form after submitting. I think it is just a matter of putting an anchor at the top and having that be the location once "Next" is clicked.

 

By the way, not sure if you saw my other post here: http://forums.trumba.com/index.php?showtopic=1824. None of my required fields other than than the submitter info is validating. All the others are being allowed to be blank.

 

 

thanks,

Joe

I moved my form to a different page and increased the size, so now it does show the entire form. So that is good. However, if you submit the form with not much filled out and click next, you are so far down, you do not see the info you are supposed to verify on the next screen. You have to scroll up. So if you never used the form, you wouldn't know what to do. It would be much better if when they clicked the "next" button, it would take them to the top of the form where they can verify. It would be the same as when you click the "next" button from the bottom of a calendar spud to get to the next group of events. It always takes you to the top of the page.

And on a side note: It takes a bit of time to load because of my custom fields. Any reason why the submission form does not load with an "in progress" gif, similar to the ones used for the calendar, promotion and control spuds? It would definitely help to let people know that there is a form on the page, rather than close the page before it loads.

The dev team is aware of the event submission form issue where it does not scroll back to the top of the next page to review the event submission. This is on the list of features to enhance, however they have quite a few other feature enhancements that have a higher priority at this time. Also, I added your request for an loading progress icon to appear as well as the event submission form loads.
