Would like the ability to use show/hide conditions on specific back/next buttons, rather than on the complete page break

    I agree with Kingc37. It doesn't make sense why you can hide the next button in the settings on page break, but can't turn it on conditionally. Under what circumstances would you ever want to HIDE a next button without being able to make it VISIBLE? 

    I think you need to add the functionality to be able to show/hide the back/next buttons on a page break conditionally.

    Please check my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/73407270928965

    Is that what you're trying to achieve?

    If yes, you can clone my form and check the conditional configuration. To clone a form, please follow this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Thanks, close but not quite. Since you used the show/hide page break function, it wouldn’t allow a person to go backwards and fix something. If both buttons were visible on the page break when it is shown, it defeats the purpose of holding somebody off from hitting next unless logic/conditions are met. Thanks though.

    I will submit a feature request to see if it is possible to add conditions to only hide the back or next buttons.  The assumption for the hiding the full page break is that previous pages have been completed sufficiently before progressing to the next page.  I do see how it would be beneficial to allow for hiding either one instead of both.

    I cannot say if/when this functionality could be added but if there are any updates, we will let you know via this thread.

    I have accomplished what I’ve wanted to this way, by hiding collapsible sections. In the end, I kind of like my solution better because it keeps all the related information that is supposed to match up on the same page. But yes, there are times that you don’t want a person to proceed, but they may want to go back and fix a prior entry.
