Linking of two forms

Hi,

We have two separate forms - goods distribution and record attendance (who
has received goods).

We want to open goods distribution form and then start recording attendance
for same distribution multiple times.

Is there any way we can open ‘record attendance form’ from ‘goods
distribution form’ multiple time (user will select add new form as select
in repeat group item)

For our workflow, we cannot put record attendance form inside a repeat
group.

Please advise.

Thanks,
Vipin Gupta

Hello Vipin,

Unfortunately I think the only way to do this cleanly would be to put the
questions from the record attendance form into the repeat group. Repeat
groups cannot open and submit forms repeatedly, however their functionality
is perfect if you could include the questions from the form in the repeat
group itself.

One idea is to have a repeat group that opens child cases for each of the
’record attendance’ forms. You could then have a module that has all the
outstanding ‘record attendance’ cases that need to be filled out. You could
set the form navigation to navigate back to the case list of attendance
forms every time one is completed so that the user could see exactly how
many were left to complete. This might create that nice circular workflow
you are looking for with the repeat group without including the record
attendance form questions in a repeat group.

Cheers,
Claire

Hello Claire,

Can you explain more when you say “You could set the form navigation to
navigate back to the case list of attendance forms every time one is
completed”.
How I can perzonalize the buttons that appear after complete repeat group:
“Go Back”, “Add Group” and “Do Not Add”.

I mean, you are suggesting this:

Repeat Group:
Question 1
Question 2
Question N

After complete all record attendance cases User needs. I can show to user
the complete list of cases he has completed…
So, he can be sure he have completed all records. And maybe he can add one
more if he needs.

Thanks.
