    The multi page form I have created with page breaks I want it to go to a different HTML or php page, is this possible?

    Asked by lalsamir on January 17, 2011 at 05:27 PM

    I have a 5 page form.  Each page has a back and/or next.  The last page has a submit.  So lets go over a scenario:

    Page 1 of my site and page 1 of the form.  When the user hits next on page 1 of the form it should go to page 2 of the form but also go to page 2 of my site.  So each page in the form has it's own html page (shell).  Is this possible?

    You should probably just create separate forms and put the URL of next form to the "Thank You URL" of the previous form.


    Here is how you can change the Thank You URL for a form:

    1. Click on "Setup and Share" tab on the form builder toolbar

    2. Click on "Thank You"

    3. Select "Custom URL" option and enter a URL from your own web site.

    I don't think this will work out because A) I will use up my form submissions quicker B) if I go to form 2 from form 1 then I decide to go back to form 1 to make changes to it the form 1 data might be gone C) too many reports D) I would have to create in my case 17 different forms because my form is 17 pages long.  I might have to create the form using something else.  thanks.

    (A) is good for us :) 

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to have a single form with multiple pages and open all those pages on different pages on your site. This is not possible. That's why I suggested having different forms.

    Why do you need to have each page on a separate page on your site? Do you need to add instructions or something like that to the page?

    I have vertical tabs that run across the left side of the page adjacent to the form shell.  Its purpose is to show the user what part of the form they are one and the ability to jump to a page of the form by clicking on one of the tabs.  Doesn't look JotForm is the solution.  However, I do like how I can at least build a form and use the source code.  That is helpful. :)

    You might be able to implement something like that using "Free Text (HTML)" fields. At least horizantal tabs at the top of each page should be possible. Add "Free Text (HTML)" fields from Power Tools to the top of each page, and have it show the user where the user is at in the process.
