FP 2k3 and forms (changing what a form looks like and what it will do) probably a SIMPLE fix ???
Posted on 2004-11-17
Hi: I have a FP website hosted on the web. Inside of my site, I have a web form that is working JUST fine. Getting that form to work was another issue all together, but it is working fine now.
What my question is (actually a four part question):
#1: I have a field inside my web form that 'asks' for the DATE to be typed in. Is there anyway to have this field automatically 'populated' with the correct date, so that the end-user does not have to worry about typing it in (or worse typing in the wrong date)? Also, can the 'exact' time of day be a field along with the DATE too?
#2: When an end-user fills out the form, the results of the form are emailed to me directly. This is what I want it to do, but I would like for the SUBJECT line of the email I receive to have the NAME of the person who filled out the form (ex. the name is one of the 6 or 7 fields I have inside the form).
I would like this because once I receive the email; I have to OPEN it up to SEE whose name is inside ... If this was PART of the SUBJECT of the email, I would save myself a lot of time consuming steps.
#3: How do I make a FIELD inside the form 'mandatory' to be filled out; otherwise, the form cannot be sent?
#4: I noticed inside my form (when viewed LIVE on the web) that some of the fields BOXES have a YELLOW background to them. I've also noticed this yellow background on other forms that I've filled out on other websites. I've just recently started seeing these yellow 'boxes', and I was wondering if they were any indication of something
Thanks in advance for your time and any reply.
