    Can I ask for an email address in a field, and then give access to clicking a link?

    Asked by dmmunger on June 01, 2017 at 01:49 PM

    Hi, 

    I want to have an email field included in my form, and once the client takes the test and enters their email, I want to provide a link to a blog post (but only if they enter their email address).

    Is there a way to do this??

     

    Thanks!

    I recommend you use the Show/Hide Field condition. The condition is when the user entered an email address, the text element with a link will appear. Here's a demo form: https://form.jotformpro.com/71515893877977

    Here's a guide on how I created that demo form:

    1. Insert an "Email" field and a "Text" element.

    2. Edit the "Text" tool and use the "Insert/Edit Link" button to create a link.

    3. After that, create a Show/Hide Field condition wherein if the "Email" text box is filled, the "Text" tool will appear.

    Here's the result:
