Hello there, I have created a form where users can upload some price quotes with other information related to it, after users search for quotes on the results page they will see some information and the price, now what I want to do and I get stuck, is to create some kind of button inline for each entry, where users will have the option to ask for more details or just select that entry, sort of add to favourite. After they have selected that entry, a set of information will have to be stored and passed to a form and a dedicated page where these offers will later be grouped and sorted. I would like to know if this is possible. Screenshot search form: Screenshot result page: Screenshot with the form that some users will use to add price offers from this form we have to get some information and display them on a dedicated page: Just as a note the users will upload this form with their details and price offers one time and then they will update the price every week. Please let me know if you need any other details as I don't know exactly how to put this in order to understand better what I need. Regards,

Can you be more specific on what part you're struggling on? Is it just being able to put a button on each line of the table or getting the button to do what you want?

Also, note that the third image in your question is the same as the second one. Maybe a copy/paste issue.

Formidable Forms can have default values set by URL parameters. you can have buttons in Views that can have these parameters filled with the desired values based contained in the data in the View.

Your View has entries from a form containing quotes. Any data element in the View can be used as a URL parameter for the button.

Here's a link to how Formidable's get and set shortcodes work:

Hope this helps 🙂

Definitely doable. Sounds like you need to have a discussion with someone to sort out the architecture of your application. Check out your options here ->

Bobby's 100% right. I've been fortunate to have engaged Formidable Masterminds for help sorting things out for me in the past. If anybody can do it, they can.

Thank you all for your answer, let me be a bit more clear on this.

@Rob LeVine So there will be two users roles, suppliers and operators, the suppliers will upload their price offer using this form ( After submitting the offers, an operator can use a custom search form ( to filter some offers depending on their needs, after search the operators will land on result page ( where the offers will be listed in a tab, here I want to add a button that will allow the operators to ask for more details or select one or multiple offers after the operators will hit the button, some information from this form ( and some informations from search form have to be saved and passed to a dedicated page for both suppliers and operators roles. Another thing is that price offers are introduced just once in the system and after the suppliers will just update their offers, so the values that are passed in the dedicated pages have to be duplicated I guess so their not affected by the weekly supplies price offers changes.

@Michael Clark Thanks for sharing that.

@Bobby Clapp I have already sent an email to some experts from there, thank you.

Hi George,

Greetings from ByteCode Labs and Thank you for the additional details.

So, the flow as we understand is as follows -

Supplier uploads price offers >> Operator Searches for offers >> Selects one or more offers and contacts Supplier for more info.

The third step should open up a form with some field values copied from the original price offer. On the form submission, the respective Suppliers will get emails.

Is the above understanding correct, if so, we can discuss further offline to kick off the project.

We can be contacted through various channels mentioned here =>

Best regards.
