Individuelle Anpassungen der Webformulare

General information

The standard web form content resembles the data structure in the local TOM database and should therefore not require major adaptations.

However, in the same way as TOM's local resources can be adapted through form templates and other text elements, the web forms' multiple choice boxes and dropdown menus can be customized from within TOM. You cannot at this time edit the arrangement of fields on the web form, nor the labels attached to the fields, without help from the Jovosoft php developer. Of course if you are experienced in php you can make those changes and are eligible to do so, but still you have to consult Jovosoft because some of the changes may affect the intake of data from the web form into TOM.

 

Procedure

Go to User settings | ProjManagemt | WebForms

The text elements in your web form are stored in separate text files (".list") in a sub-folder within the php folder on your web space. You can now retrieve the contents from those files into a TOM field one by one, edit it and send it back to update the web content. To do so:

Set the parameters as follows:
1.URL: the path to the php folder on your web space (must end with /php/  [or the folder name containing the TOM web form php code] )
2.File: select from a list of file names, e.g. "specs" for the selection of specializations or technical fields that you want your applicants to choose from
3.Language: in case your web site is multi-language, choose the web form language from dropdown list

 

If the parameters have been set correctly you should now see the content from the selected file in the little web viewer underneath the parameters section. You can then continue to edit it:

 

Click - the contents is picked up and shows in the editing field.
Edit the list: Make sure there are no empty lines in the editing field!
Click

 

Now select the next File you want to edit (see above) and do the same for all text elements that are adaptable this way.

The web viewer on the right displays the current web content at any point. (Note: The web viewer may not always display the list elements as separated by returns.)
