    Page Breaks Without Requirement to Fill In All Fields

    Asked by rfkrfk on February 13, 2017 at 12:29 AM

    Is it possible to insert a Page Break/Next button without the requirement to have filled in all fields on a current page to move on to next page?

    What you can do is add the Form Tabs widget to your form. This widget allows navigation without validation.

    Then, just hide it with CSS so you're left with your usual Back / Next buttons. Your respondents will see the errors as they navigate each page but they CAN go back and forth anytime they want. Just keep in mind that even with this widget, ALL fields on ALL pages will still be validated at the end.

    The key setting here is the Allow navigation without validation option:

    Lastly, hide the tabs with CSS:

    Here are the CSS codes:

    #tabs-list {

         display: none;
