This help desk is no longer actively support. We have switched to a ticketing system to more smoothly manage support, and free up development time. Your newly created tickets won't be available here. You will instead have an email history of your new tickets.

We are working on moving everything current and helpful from public tickets into the docs. This will be a long process and in the meantime, public tickets will remain searchable.

Enable Filtering by Parent ID for Views of Forms with Repeating Sections

The limitations to using the frm_stats short code described here: https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/add-field-totals-and-statistics/#kb-limitations result in the creation of quite a bit of additional work (and code) when you want to provide aggregate data related to a submission. The frm_stats short code is very useful, but this limitation in its functionality is very frustrating.

Hi --

A parent_id param has been added to the frm-stats shortcode, so you'll be able to filter stats by parent entry id or key.

You should see this in the next release.

That's great news! How will that need to be configured in a detail view that gets dynamically generated?

Thank you!

Carla

Hi, Carla --

In a Detail View of the parent entry, you'd add a param like:

parent_id=[id]

to the stat of a child field.  Then the stat would only be for child entries that have that parent's entry id.

Awesome! I look forward to adding this to several of my views.

Wonderful!
