    Can I make it so that the submit button has a pop-up?

    Can I create a button that when it is clicked, a pop-up comes up requesting the information from the user and then they submit from there?

    You can use the lightbox feature to make this happen. 

    You can get the lightbox code when you do the following:

    1. Edit your form
    2. Click Embed Form
    3. Click Lightbox
    4. Copy the code and place it in your web page.

    Now, instead of using the link. You can change it into a button.  Simply find the <a ...> tag and replace it with a <button ...> tag. 

    Here's an example of the button that will pop-up a form when clicked: http://liyam.comuf.com/jotform/lightbox_button.html
