Help with Formset (I think it is formset I need)


I am trying to create a form with a check box list for Tags associated
with an Appointment.

Please list tags for this Appoingmen _ Work
_ School
_ Other

I need to design this so users can add additional tags later.

Appoitnemts and Tags are M2M related:

class Appointment(models.Model):
name = models.CharField(max_length=64)

class Tag(models.Model):
name = models.CharField(max_length=64, unique=True)
appointments = models.ManyToManyField(Appointment)

My Forms Class:

class TagForm(forms.Model.Form):
tags =

widget=forms.CheckboxSelectMultiple() )

class Meta:
model = Tag

In my view I have also tried:

TagFormSet = modelformset_factory(Tag, form=TagForm)
tag_form = Tag = TagFormSet(query =

This looks right when the form is displayed, exepct the form is
duplicated once for each Tag in my Db, and clearly this is not pulling
or saving to the Db correctly.

I have looked through the Django documentation, but cannot figure out
how to implement the formset correctly (I think it is a formset I need

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
