    If I'm understanding your concern correctly, you would like your respondents to submit the form in-between forms, is that correct? Furthermore, you would like your respondents to be redirected to Form 2 after filling up and submitting form 1, then, you would like your respondents to be redirected to Form 3 after filling up and submitting Form 2.

    If that is the case, then you can use the direct link of Form 2 and set it as the "Redirect to external link" of Form 1.

    The image below shows how you can get the direct link of a form.

    Then, in Form 1, build page, copy the direct link of Form 2 to the "Redirect to external link" option of the Thank-You-Page settings.

    You should do the same to Form 2 after getting the link of Form 3.

    With the setup shown above, if you submit Form 1, instead of being redirected to the form's default Thank-you page, you will be redirected to Form 2.

    I'm sorry if I forgot to mention that if you want to have the data from Form 1 to appear in Form 2, then you can pass it through the direct link of Form 2 as a parameter.

    Yes, the flow is completing form 1 will direct to form 2. 

    After completing form 2 will direct to Form 3 with some information from form 1.

     

    I will try the above parameter & update the result.
