Creating a mileage log?

Post by cvma274webmaster » Mon Jun 11, 2018 1:48 pm

I run a members only board for a motorcycle organization. The organization tracks members mileage to various events throughout the year. The members are awarded for various levels of mileage at the end of the year. What's the best way for the users to enter their own mileage for each event and a total mileage be calculated as the year progresses?

Thanks in advance!

Obviously if your members are entering the data themselves there will need to be a degree of honesty from them.

One way would be to have a forum for the year and each member created their own topic where after each event they would enter their mileage, and then at the end of the year you would go through and add them all up.

Another option could be to have one topic where each member would have a reply which they could edit with their milrage.

There is nothing within phpBB that would automatically calculate the annual total - for that you would need an extension.

or, you could create a custom profile field for the mileage. the member would need to go to his/her profile and enter the mileage in the form. not sure if you can create one that would automatically keep track and update totals etc. so
you might have to do the extension as was said.
