Support » Fixing WordPress » Forms to collect data

  • Hello Support … I am looking for advice on data collection having tried many form plugins.
    I can capture the data via a form plugin but not quite in the format I require.
    We need to collect racing data from our clubs who need to input their top 5 positions each week.
    We would collect data from 10 clubs and download the combined data as a csv file for input into the result software.
    If a club only had 1 position to input that would be fine but as they need to input 5 positions 1st to 5th per race then this is the problem as the data is not in the correct positions.
    We collect Members Number, Name, Finish Time
    A csv file outputs as 1 complete record for a club (combines all 5 positions) when I would require 5 records per club.
    Not sure if this is possible but hopefully someone will guide me.
    Thanks

    Many thanks Corrinausso
    I did look at Gravity Forms but could not work out how to get the multiple lines of records in the form so turned to a spreadsheet idea but still looking for a solution.

    Most form plugin allow for only 1 line of a record but I need up to 5 lines (like 5 rows on a spreadsheet) to capture all the records and then that needs to saved (submit form) and then when all clubs submit results all combined in 1 download of csv or excel.

    Will re-visit Gravity Forms and thanks for the help.

    Just to add … Sorry but I do not know the technical name for what I am trying to create.

    I suppose its a spreadsheet that a Club would input the data on a webpage but in the form of a Form.

    I have looked at a number of Gravity Form videos but not yet found an example but will keep looking.

    Thanks again

    Exactly like that Corrinarusso

    I did look at some sports sites as well but what you have shown me is perfect.
