    Automatically submit the form after a period of time

    Asked by robwarburton on May 24, 2017 at 02:33 PM


    Is it possible to make a timed quiz on Jotform?

    I have played around with multiple timers and 'conditions' but can't seem to get them to work.

    This is what we want:

    Page 1 - brief intro and enter name box

    Page 2 - a timed test starts as soon as someone enters the page, they can either finish all questions and submit or the form will auto submit when the timer runs out.

    You can make use of our Countdown widget, you can set a time limit and it will count down to zero. I believe this would work for your scenario.

    Hope this helps, let us know if you have any other questions.

    Thank you!

    I've tested this and nothing happens when the countdown reaches zero.


    How can I make it so the test submits when it reaches zero?

    The only tool we have that allows for automatically submitting the form is our Global Countdown widget:



    This is based on a timer and can submit the form when the timer is up.

    Here is an example of how the widget would work:
