    For my next form, is there a way to copy fields and then edit it a bit further in the form?

    For example registration forms have more than 1 child, can I copy the fields I created for child #1 and duplicate for child #2,  #3 and #4?

    Hi!  Fields can only be brought over from the field section on the left.  At this time there isn't a way to copy a field in the body and paste it somewhere else in the article.  

    What many of our churches do is copy the text that they enter into their fields and then paste it into each field that they bring over from the left.  We hope this helps!

    Hi, is there a way to include Grade level in a form?

    Hi Chris!

    Great question! Yes, you can. Fields can be brought over from the field section on the left of the Form. The Dropdown field gives form respondents the option to select one option specific to the field.You can include the Grade level in the form by using the Dropdown field to select a grade. 

    Hope this helps! :)

    Hi Emily,

    I have a dropdown field on my existing form for grades, however, I don't think those fields associated with the database grade levels, are they?

    Thanks, Chris

    Hey Chris - You'll need the name to match exactly with what's listed in the profile fields.  So, for instance, if you use "Grade Going Into in the Fall" for your form dropdown, it won't match to the profile field, because that is just called "grade". 

    The best solution for this (if you want to keep it called something other than 'grade') is to temporarily change that form field name to 'grade' while you're associating the profiles.  Then you can change it back right after. 

    Hope that makes sense!

    Hi!

    I need help with a form I'm designing:

    I want to create a form containing 10 one-hour shifts that are limited to 8 people per shift. Is it possible for people filling out the form to see which shifts are no longer available and which still need to be filled? I really need people to see what slots are available when they look at the form. I have not be able to figure out how to make this work.

    OR would I need to create a separate form for each date and time slot (which seems like a LOT of forms).

    Thanks for your assistance!

    Hi Dana!

    While you are right you can use our forms for signups, within  Breeze forms there is not a way for others to see this information or what others have signed up for or what spots are still available. Sign-Up Genius is a great option to allow more flexibility on your side and less confusion for the volunteer side.  Another idea is you could create something like a Google Sheet that you can share in a link with all of the volunteers and allow them to sign up for the times that are available. You would then need to transfer that information over to Breeze but it would help centralize the process and connect everyone in one place. I wish I had a better news but I hope this is helpful! :)
