    If the form gets submitted it is redirected to the form's Thank-You page by default.

    Please check this guide for more information: Setting-Up-the-Thank-You-Page

    You can also redirect the form respondents to a different page


    You can also show a Thank-You message first before redirecting to another page following the instruction in this guide: Create-a-Custom-Thank-you-page-with-Auto-redirect

    We will be glad to help you with your concern, however, may we know what exactly are you trying to achieve, please?

    We will wait for your response.

    Yes, The behavior I'd like to get out of the form is to hide after the user clicks submit and not redirect them to another page.  Redirecting them to another page will increase my bounce rate.  I just want to form to disappear after they clivk submit.

    Is this behavior possible?


    Thank you

    Unfortunately,  the form cannot be closed automatically after submitting the form. As I check the information on the internet, it looks like auto-closing of the windows are no longer working with the current browsers. However, if you find any scripts to autoclose the browser window, you may consider adding them to a page and redirect to it using the Thank you page as mentioned by our colleague.

    Please get back to us if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.
