Looking for form to table

Post by willowtree » Wed Apr 10, 2019 10:40 am

Hi,

For our club website I'm looking for a way that members can enter details into a form, and that will generate a 'leaderboard'

It would need to total up the points that have been entered.

It's for our dog club, so each member might have a number of dogs.

The final table wants to have 5 columns, member, dog, grade, height, total points. (The height and grade would be fixed for the year

I could do it with a google form and sheets, but I can't see how to embed these into the joomla site.

Is there a free extension that would do this for me? (It's a non-profit club so I'm trying to do it at no cost for them)

Thanks,

I would say stick with your last idea, use google forms / google sheets, and embed the resulting sheet into Joomla with https://extensions.joomla.org/extension ... cs-viewer/ (Free)

I'm wondering if there's a component I can use, perhaps a leaderboard type component.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

OK, I found a couple that may help:

* https://extensions.joomla.org/extension/leader-board/
* https://extensions.joomla.org/extension ... aderboard/

Perhaps they can be adapted. [ Edit....or perhaps not; they both look rather ancient and don't seem actively supported ]

* If these are not suitable, you could create your own, e.g. with Fabrik
https://extensions.joomla.org/extension ... ms/fabrik/

The ideas is you can create the forms for data entry, and create reports from the submitted data in the db tables you specify and build your own reports and SQL queries. There's a learning curve, so be aware of that.
