Building online quizzes with Knack

02/27/2015 Posted by Brandon

With our recent form upgrades it’s now possible to create multi-step processes using forms and other views.

With each form you can redirect to a child page that works with the same record. You can continue to create a path to work with the same record using as many forms or other views as you need.

This is perfect for quiz apps where you can ask a single question on one form and then redirect to a child page to show whether the answer was correct or not.

A menu can then link to question 2. You can cycle like this through all of your questions until you eventually hit a “results” page to show a final score.

We built an example quiz to show you how it can work.

We also added a walk-through with some animated GIFs of how we built it:

Knack now makes it easy to build simple quizzes like this. Throw in all the extra features Knack provides and you can start to build some very complex multi-step processes.
