    HI,

    I currently operate with 4 different forms.  Is it possible to create a 'Landing Page' from 1 web link and the page has 4 boxes each directing the user to a specific form ?

     

    thanks

    If I understood your requirement correctly, you would like to have one page on your website, and from it point to 4 different JotForm forms.

    You would normally embed your form to a web page:

    However, as adding multiple forms to the same page would quickly use up your form views (4 forms would be viewed every time the landing page loads), what I would recommend instead is to use one of the following methods instead of ordinary embedding:

    1. The easiest method, to use our "Popup Embed" method for all 4 forms:

    2. Alternatively, you can use your forms' direct links as well, inside anchor tags. You would get the direct link of your form on the Publish tab:

    In most website editors, you would simply paste those links into your website, and they would be clickable. In case they are not clickable, and you are pasting text into your website as source code, you could easily turn them into clickable anchor tags:

    With any of these methods, your forms will get loaded and count a form view only when the user actually clicks on the link to open one of those forms.

    Please try one of these solutions out, and let us know should you need further assistance. Thank you!

    It seems that your last reply didn't get posted on our support forum, so I'll quote it here for relevance:

    Thanks Boris

    Currently we are not embedding the links on any websites.  I have circulated the links and people are adding them to a browser, then clicking 1 of 4 links to open the relevant form

    I am hoping its possible to only have 1 weblink to open a 'Form Landing Page' and the user selects the form on this page which directs them accordingly

    Could I create another form to mirror the landing page, and could users be re-directed to these forms based on selections made ?

    Yes, you can certainly create and use a form as a sort of landing page to redirect your users to one of the other forms. You can perform this in multiple ways, and the simplest way of adding clickable links inside your form is to simply use our Text field:

    If you use only the Text field for displaying these links, you can remove the Submit button from the form.

    Please try it out and let us know how it goes.
