    I'm creating a new member form and want to copy and paste fields I've created for multiple people in the family. Is that possible?

    Is it possible to set up a form for new database entries, and then email that form through a mass email client where each recipient can fill out and submit?

    @Shannon you could absolutely create a form in order to easily create new database entries from, this is a great idea! While Forms cannot be embedded directly into an email, allowing your recipients to fill out and submit the from the email, you can certainly share the form you created through a link in your email, that recipients can then click on to access the form, fill it out and then submit. Hope this helps!

    Brand new to Breeze. We're taking it for a test drive and comparing it to CCB. 

    How would we capture info like a person's ministry fit, i.e., spiritual gifts, passions, experience, interests, etc.? Would Forms be the way of getting at that? Or are forms for some other purpose?

    Hey @jaybeuoy, 

    Welcome aboard!  That's a great question!

    It depends on who's stating the spiritual gifts.  If the person is assigning their own spiritual gift, you can set up profile fields and then set up a form with the exact field titles as the profile fields.  When someone fills a form, Breeze will give you the opportunity to update a person's profile with their answers.

    However, if you're assigning the spiritual gifts, you can just set up profile fields and track them from within a person's profile.

    Here are some articles you may find helpful:

    I hope this helps!

    Is there a way to print the form once it is created?  I know how to print when it has been filled out by someone but don't see a way to print it blank?

    Great question, here! Thanks for taking a moment reach out. 

     

    The best way to get a blank print out of the Form is to print it once you View it! Your Form will have options View Form Entries, View Form or Share Form. You will select the option to View Form -- This will allow you to print your blank copy from this area. Just Right-click and select Print!

    I hope this is helpful for you!

    Is it possible to copy and paste fields I've already created to save some time? Can a field be copied from one form and pasted to another form? Copied and pasted within a single form? Once you make a big list in a drop down or multiple choice it would be nice to be able to copy, paste and edit instead of recreating for a second family member.

I should also mention that due to the number of ideas we get from our subscribers, we're not able to provide further updates about the status of your submission here. I recommend subscribing to our blog to stay updated on future feature releases!

    Is it possible to change the size of the form? For example, to be able to put some fields side by side, instead of on top of each other?  The current way makes some of my forms 5 pages.

    Hey @info,

    That's a great question!  As it turns out, there's no way to change the layout of the forms.

    I hope this helps!

    Is there any way (or are you looking to add this ability) to resize the edit window for form creation?  I have fairly lengthy forms and the editing window is quite small - it would be nice to at least make it full screen, if not resizable.  Thanks!

    @kmhagen95 I feel your pain on this one! I have several very lengthy forms at my church too and scrolling up and down so many times becomes very un-breezy! This is a great suggestion you have! Unfortunately, there is not a way to resize the edit window at this time. We currently don't take feature requests on this platform but would love for you to submit your idea here

    Is there a way to set limits?

    We want to use Breeze for home group registration. Each home has a different number of people they are able to accommodate.

    Is it possible to show the number of available spots as well as show when a group is full?

    Also, is it possible to duplicate forms? Once I create one the others will be basically the same other than Host, Facilitator and Number of spots available.

    @ssmithcanopy You can set a limit of Max Entries by

    1. Navigate to "More > Forms."
    2. Click to either create a new form or edit an existing form.
    3. Click the "Go to Settings" link in the bottom left.
    4. Click "show more options"

    This will limit how many forms can be accepted. You can see more about editing form settings here. However, you may run into a hiccup if you are allowing multiple people to register on one form. 

    You can easily duplicate a form by: 

    1. Navigate to "More > Forms."
    2. Click the "duplicate form icon (the two sheets of paper) to the right of the form that you'd like to duplicate
    3. Change the title of the new form
    4. Update the Host, Facilitator, and Number of Spots.
    5. Click "Create Form."

    Hope this helps! Please feel free to reach out to support Monday - Friday, 9am - 6pm (Eastern) by phone (888.320.6030) or email us here.

    I'm creating a form to register kids or people for an event. Is there a way to make an "Add another child" button that generates a new section in the form for more children in the same family? Thanks for the commitment for continual improvement! We're starting to use Breeze for so many things!

    The answer to your question is, Yes. Thanks precisely how the Forms are made to be used! The Form URL can be shared multiple ways in order to best get the form accessible to the public. See here: Sharing a Form

    When you are creating a multiple-choice question, is it possible to have an "other" option that people can fill-in?

    @Tim

    Great question! As of right now, a "fill in the blank" option isn't included within the choices, however, you could create one using the Text Box field. We know this isn't super "Breezy" but it's the most useful workaround in this case! We would love for you to request this a as Feature Request - Submitting Feature Requests

    Thanks!

    I'm trying to allow people to sign up to help at an event.  I have three types of jobs available.  I've created a radio button selection for the three jobs.  I only need 2 people for Job1, 2 people for Job2 and 10 people for Job3.  I see that I could create a limit on the number of form that are accepted, but that doesn't quite address my problem. 

    Can I manually delete Job1 from my form, once I see that I have two people signed up, without affecting their submitted form?

     

    Thanks!

    It sounds like what you're needing to use is our Sign Up Sheets in Volunteer 2.0! Forms wouldn't give you the flexibility to do what you're trying to do. Check out this link:  Volunteer Management 2.0 - Invite Mode (BETA)

    Cheers!

    Is it possible to share a link to a Sign Up sheet on our App or Website? Or are notifications sent strictly through email and text?

    Great question! Unfortunately, This Functionality is not available in Breeze. The sign-up sheets are sent out individually so that people cannot respond to them via their unique identifier. This is how breeze Interpret who is actually responding to the sign-up sheet. Also this functionality does not exist, I highly recommend submitting it as a feature request: Submitting Feature Requests
