If you are running a promotion or a challege or you just want some more info about your entrants, you can use the multiple field feature of InLinkz to get it.

Create a collection as you usually do!

Click on the “extra fields” button

it will immediately change and provide you with another button to manipulate those extra fields.

Click manage

… and a popup will open.

Fill in the info

2016-07-20_14h02_31
  1. the name that will be displayed when the user sees the extra field
  2. Type of the input field (text, Date, number or choice)
  3. If you want, you can put a default value to be inserted and the user can then edit it. You can always leave that blank
  4. If the “Required” checkbox is checked, then the user must enter this info.

Clicking on the add field, adds the field to the bottom list like so:

You can click on the red minus dots to remove the fields.

When inserting a choice field, you separate the different options by comma (1)

That’s it!

Just click apply when you’re done and that’s it! Just use the collection as you already do with normal ones. The collection will understand that has more fields to require and present the user with a different entry form

The entry form as seen from the entrant’s side

the no.1 fields, are the same as the ones shown on normal collections.
the no.2 fields are the fields we set at the advanced options dialog. You will notice that the choice entry “Children” is represented by a drop down box, filled with the entries we set.

While the collection seems like a normal collection, the collection owner now has access to the data entered on the extra fields through the dashboard.

Click on the “csv” link and you will be prompted to download a .csv file with all the data added, even the extras!

You can use this feature, to ask for addresses for promotional purposes. Or you can use it to collect more sensitive information like prices, phone numbers or whatever you wish!

Simple and effective!!!
