I am trying to create a simple View of webforms to display a list of currently available jobs.

This is what I am trying to accomplish:

I thought webforms would be a decent solution considering I can add/remove them once the job listing is expired. It is also very easy to go through submissions.

Only issue I am having is that the contact form I have is also a webform.

So I am getting some unwanted items in my view query. I am having a difficult time figuring out a simple yet robust solution to filter the different types of webforms.

The only filter criteria available for a view of webforms are Webform: Node & Webform: Status and I believe neither will help me accomplish what I need.

Anybody got any ideas of what I could do to differentiate between webforms for views filtering?

  • So, I'm not sure that webforms will do what you want. I think you want a custom content type of Jobs, which are easily filtered in views.

  • @nizz0k users need to be able to attach resume' and cover letter and I need to be able to go through all the submissions, need to send confirmation emails and limit user submissions. And I don't want to have to reinvent the wheel or have 50 modules when web-forms handles 99.9% of it. Unless you know of a simple solution that falls under that scope i believe webforms are a better solution overall.

  • You don't need 50 modules. I'd say you could do this with a "job" content type, a flag, and a single webform for submission. So, you have your jobs content type, users flag the job/jobs they are applying for, and finally submit through a webform which has the job/list of jobs. Same basic concept but doesn't make you generate tons of separate webforms for each job.

  • if you think that will work, I can give you more details on the implementation and the tiny little custom module to get a list of the flagged jobs.

  • Not 100% sure how but I have the option to filter by two more options: Global Combine Fields, and Fields Comparison, but I don't think those are helpful to you either.

You can enable Webform functionality on all the different content types. You don't have to use the Webform content type which comes pre-packaged with the module.

Make a new content type, and go to: /admin/config/content/webform and enable webform functionality on the new content type you created. Then add the webform to it.

Then you just need to filter by content type on Views.


Take a look at the webform view module, this module let's you place a view in your webform.

    Can you elaborate on how this addresses the question about create a view of webforms and not place a view in a webform?

  • I'm not sure the functionality op is looking for is possible, I am suggesting a parallel development that would achieve the sAme end
