    Hi Jotform Help,

    I am creating an application form for my fellowships program.  In the old application, which was just posted on our website (candidates took that Word Doc and filled in their replies, saved it and then emailed it to us), there are two pages of introduction, instructions, etc.  I'd like to have that same information be on this form--so that when an applicant goes to the application, she will first be able to read those two pages and then get to the part where she uploads her info. 

    Would you tell me how to do that?

    Thank you so much,

    Claire Brown

    Hi Claire,

    you could probably make use of 'page breaks' and the HTML (text field) tool to achieve the form you describe. 

    A page break, splits content on your form up over a number of different 'pages'

    --

    A brief how to, summary follows:

    Start by adding a Free Text(HTML) field to your form, once you have placed it on your form, click the Edit HTML button, and add the text of what used to be page 1 on your paper form. 

    (Click the Complete button when done)

     

    Now add a 'Page Break' underneath, the Page Break tool is under the Survey Tools sub menu.

     

    Underneath this page break, add another Free Text(HTML)  field, and then another Page Break. 

    Leaving your form looking a little like this:

     

    Then underneath the final page break.. add your 'normal' form fields. (along with the submit button)

     

    This is how my example form looks

    I hope it illustrates what you could do, please let us know if you have any questions.
