    Is there a way to create a “Premium” listing versus a basic listing, that would automatically show different fields?

    For example, we want to offer a premium listing to business that join as members.

    The Basic listing will have business name and contact info. The Premium listing will also have the website link, image, logo and bio.

    Right now we have to just manually turn off or on each of these fields in the record in change it to a Basic or Premium listing.

    Maybe there’s a way to do this, and I’m just not aware of it in the plugin or an extension.

    If not, it would be a really useful feature to have way to create different types of listings, that can control sets of fields being turned on or off automatically all at once.

    Sorry, no, there is no support builtin into Form to limit which fields are displayed to which user.

    I’d have to take a look at the code to refresh my memory, but… I suppose it should be possible to add a filter which could be hooked into where you could choose which fields to display based on user role (since most membership solutions use roles to separate).

    Steven,

    Thanks for your reply.

    But to clarify, I don’t want the fields displayed to differ based on the user. Everyone should see the same view.

    The difference would be whether the business listed is a member. So some listings will be Basic and some will be Premium. The difference would be in the listing itself, not the viewer/user.

    I do understand not per user. I was saying per user role. Sorry I was not more clear. Every membership plugin I am familiar with uses user roles to determine what the current user has access to. IN this case, which fieldset in the Form addon.

    We want people to be able to submit all the fields for their listing in the Form add-on, but then administratively make them public or not based on whether they are a member. So the Premium listing with all the fields is an incentive for membership. So the function we’re looking for isn’t in the Form add-on, but in the plugin itself for the moderator, to have groups of fields that can be made public or hidden as a group. Right now we’ll just have to manage each field individually.
