    Social Share widget: How can I validate whether a user has shared my link?

    Asked by jonathantsho on February 14, 2017 at 02:55 AM

    Hi Jotform, Bronze tier user here :)
    I have implemented the option for users to share, however I'd like to display a message when the user has successfully shared my post. 
    I tried looking into the if/else options, but there wasn't one for the shared option. 

    For example, I've posted an ideal situation.

    Hello jonathantsho,

    Unfortunately, this is not possible at the moment. There is no option on the widget to set a field to validate whether an action on the widget has been shared or not. 

    However, I believe this can be a good upgrade to the widget, but I cannot guarantee that this can be implemented anytime soon. In any case, should we have an update on this matter, we'll let you know.

    Thanks.
