    Create condition that will go to external web page address

    Asked by ctphoto on December 14, 2016 at 01:30 PM

    Is there a way to create a conditional that when someone selects a choice in a drop down list it will go to an external web page in a new browser window? Preferably as just a pop up so when they are done on that page they can close that browser window and continue on with my form.

    There is not currently a way to automatically pop-up a window or force users to go to an external page when a selection is made.  This would cause all sorts of security issues.

    You can, however, show them a specific link in the form when a selection is made.  The link can open in a new tab or window. The links can be set up in Text fields.  Here is an example form:

    That is how I have it set up now, it "shows" when they pick a certain choice in the dropdown, but then they forget to click on the link.

    You could add some sort of verification like a checkbox field form them to check stating they have visited the link.  Though there would be no way to truly check if they had visited the link.

    You could also embed the web pages directly to the form using an iframe widget:

    And conditionally show those.
