Ability to select dynamic data in forms fields select/dropdown


#1

Could you guys PLEASE add the ability to get choices from collections in a form select list, or dynamic forms in general. (even better)

When making a CMS website I often need the collection detail pages to have a review form or booking form or contact form you name it, but that would result in showing the exact same form on all detail pages.

So let's say I have a Hotel booking CMS website and a user gives a review through the form on the specific detail page, for me there's no way to know on which room/hotel that review was given.

Thanks in advance!

Hi @SidneyOttelohe, thanks for the post. This is a great idea for sure. One solution may be to use a little javascript to save a cms field variable using the dynamic embed, and set a hidden form field with that value using jquery, letting you know which record in the collection submitted the data, is this what you are trying to accomplish?

Hi @cyberdave, Thanks for replying. That is for sure on of the things I'm trying to accomplish, but I would also need the ability to get the choices for a select field from collections. e.g. a CMS Artist booking website has a contact form at their "bookings" page where you can select all the artists in the collection "artists", I'm sure this can apply for a lot different things.

Hi, sure @SidneyOttelohe, I can completely understand, that would be super helpful. It is a great idea for the wish list and more widgets will be updated with cms capability. Stay tuned!

That would be GREAT, is there a (rough) time-frame on the other widgets being updated? :grin:

Hi @SidneyOttelohe, at the moment I do not have an ETA to share, but widgets and dynamically driven features are a high priority. When and update is made affecting to this feature, we will update this wish list :slightly_smiling:
