Advanced Quiz Scoring
We introduced the quiz module in our last update, and we had great responses from you guys.
As we are aware of the limitations, we want to break these limitations and give the best to our customers. We improved the quiz module and added the Advance Scoring in Quiz Module in this version.
Now you can assign different answers with different scores and get responses to evaluate accordingly. Sometimes there are no wrong answers to the questions; it is just better than the others. This feature can help you get more survey responses.
And there are a bunch of quiz score types available in Fluent Forms now. And they are –
- Total correct point
- Total point
- Total correct answer
- Fraction point
- Grade system
To enable Advance Quiz Score, you need to select Total Score from the Select Score Type from the input option.
Now go to the Quiz Settings and enable the quiz module; a bunch of options will appear below. Scroll down and toggle on the Quiz Questions to get the Advance Quiz Scoring, where you will find all your questions. With each question, you get the option Advance Scoring; check the box to assign different answers with different scores.
Improved File Upload
Wait, here comes another big one. This improvement was a crying need for so many users. Rather than only getting the files in the entries option, you can access them from Media Library. So, a whole new level door has opened for you; you can use the files from your leads to your website without downloading the entries and uploading them again to the Media Library.
Select the file upload fields and scroll down from the right side to get the File Upload Location Type to enable this feature. You will see two options – As Per Global Settings & Custom; if you select Custom, there are two options available there Fluent Forms Default & Media Library. Select Media Library to upload the files in the WordPress Media Library.
Improved Post Update feature
We’ve added a new field as Post Update, where you can configure the post-selection option. In the post-update form, users can previously select a post, but that option wasn’t configurable. Now you can customize it, which surely makes the post creation features more powerful.
Download PDF submissions
The name says it all, PDF downloading and sharing is now easier than ever. From now on, users can download their submissions as PDFs anytime they want. Admin can give permission to download PDFs to the users and share encrypted URLs that only the user can access. Download the free PDF addon for Fluent Forms to enable PDF options.

“So, a whole new level door has opened for you, you can use the files from your leads to your website without downloading the entries and upload them again to the Media Library. ”
– For this part I was using a filter to change the filename of files uploaded by FF so I can search easier for them later.
– Then, I was using a plugin Media Sync to actually scan for FF files and sync them to media library without the need to download and reupload 😀
But now with this update you solved a pretty big problem that now is done automatically for us!
Quiz improvement, I like that very much! Great work FF team!
