    How can an applicant begin to fill in a form, moving through the pages, even if the required fields are not yet filled?

    Asked by RMHCNYTSA on March 06, 2017 at 03:05 PM

    I'm creating an application form, which will be about 7 pages long.  Most fields will be required.  But I would like the applicants to be able to fill in different information on different pages as they wish.  However, if the required fields are not yet filled, then the form will not move to the next page.  How can I remedy this?

    If I'm understanding your concern correctly, I would suggest you add a Form Tabs widget to your form and set it to where navigation is allowed without validation.

    The screenshot below shows how it works.

    I hope this helps. If, in any case, I have misunderstood your concern or you have any further questions regarding this, please feel free to contact us again anytime.

    Thank you.
