I am starting an Auto Glass business and my local competitors have online quotes on their websites. I feel that in order to stay competitive I should have the same option. Here is one of the sites I am referring to: www.unionautoglass.com On the right of each page you see a drop down menu to receive an instant online quote. Is there a way to do this with yola? If so could someone please give me a hint as to how? Or I'll even pay someone to do it for me!! ;) Thanks guys

Hello Matt,

Thanks for providing a reference to the kind of thing you would like to have on your site. The good news is that this is really easy to accomplish.

Please have a look at http://jotform.com which is an online form creator that will allow you to achieve this within minutes. It is a very straight forward facility to use and I think that you would get the feel within moments. It's free for a fairly large number of monthly submissions. Forget exactly what the numbers are but it's documented on the Jotform FAQ.

If you would like some assistance by all means let me know and I can work with you. I'm happy to direct you or if you prefer to do it for you.

The form can reside on your site as it does on the site you've referenced. Once a customer submits the form then it will be sent to an email address that you specify. You can also have it direct to a Google spreadsheet or an online invoice system. It's very functional and something I am confident that you will enjoy doing.

Good luck Matt and I think the concept is fantastic. Think you have a winner with this one .

Thank you for the quick, and very informative reply. However, it seems that the jotform.com forms don't let me build the database like I need. Is there somewhere where I can build a database, and link it to a dropdown menu like the one in the site I referenced above? Thank you again.

Yes. You can still use Jotform and link it to a Google docs spreadsheet. The spreadsheet then would be your database. You could then subsequently manipulate the data any way you need.

Jotform have the facility of dropdown item selections, so it really is all there.
