Brian Gasperosky asked 1 year ago
The title above pretty much says it all. I need to create a bulk-edit front end form. Specifically, I need to create an inventory management form. For example, say IT receives a pallate of 20 monitors that are being assigned to the same room. We currently have a single entry form they can use, and we allow them to create imports. But what they would like is a form like the single entry form, except for the serial number field, they would like to be able to scan/type in a comma delimited list. When they hit submit, the form would generate 20 entries, where everything is the same on each entry, except the serial number. Is there an add-on or a way to assemble this in Formidable Pro already, or do I need to dust off my PHP knowledge and get to work on a custom plugin or extension?

Bulk editing will take custom code.

Alternate Option: You can enter the details once and then have a button to duplicate an entry and then set something like the serial number to unique so that would be all you'd have to change. I've incorporated a method to print out labels with a QR code and apply them to IT equipment. Then you can scan the QR code (a url back to the asset page) and then add support or notes there. You'll need a quality label printer though.
