    I love the single question in one page mode ; for one it focuses the form filler's attention on a single question at a time and removes all the other distractions. It also has a better layout. But choosing between the two layouts is always a dilemma because conditional skipping to an entirely different page is not available in the said mode. Is there a workaround to this? Has anyone come up with a good solution that can mimic the functionality available in the "All questions on one page" mode?

    Yes you have the availability to create multi page forms with All questions in one page layout. Please refer to the link below on how to achieve that.

    Hi Ardian,

    I think you are misreading my question! I know the functionality IS available. Please re-read my post :o)

    The Show conditions can be used to display the additional pages (questions) based on the user selections.

    Could you please provide us with a bit more information about your case? Is there are any specific situations when you need to redirect the user to the specific question on a new layout form? Any examples would be appreciated.

    We can forward your feedback to our developers.

    Mike,

    Are you familiar with "Form Layout" option under Settings? If you chose "Single Question In One Page" option there, when designing the form, I can't go to a separate "page" consisting of entirely a different set of questions, based on a conditional selection on the form.

    In "All Questions in One Page" layout mode, I can ask "Do you like cats or dogs?" on the initial "page" If the user selects cats, I can skip to the cats page which contains all questions pertaining to cats. If he selects dogs, I can skip to the dogs page. This functionality isn't available in "Single Question In One Page" layout. Is there a way to mimic this functionality in the "Single Question in One Page" layout?

    Here's my incomplete attempt to mimic this functionality by creating "sections" and grouping all pertinent questions under appropriate sections.

    I believe our colleague Mike was indeed referring to the new Form Layout "Single Question in One Page" -- it is because the classic layout was the "All Question in One Page".

    Although the Skip to Page Condition is not available in the new form layout, it is still possible to hide pages and fields using the Conditions.

    You can test this form https://form.jotform.com/73506192096964

    I hope this help. Let us know if this is resolution did not work for you.

    Thanks Jonathan,

    But I feel we are introducing more confusion by saying "Although the Skip to Page Condition is not available in the new form layout, it is still possible to hide pages and fields using the Conditions." WHERE is the concept of "PAGES" in the "One Question on One Page" layout? It doesn't exist correct? I know the closest thing to pages in the new layout is "Sections". I know I can create sections, group all relevant questions under that section and then hide / show that section header as well as all questions in that section based on a condition at the beginning of the form (I think this is what your example shows). This isn't as straightforward and logical as the other layout. For one, if I insert a question later on somewhere in between, I should remember to include that question in the hide / show condition, whereas before, I could show / hide an entire page and so adding a certain question to a certain hidden page would not change anything since that question would still remain hidden because the page containing that question itself remains hidden.

    In this whole process, I think I am managing to get around that limitation by grouping questions under a section and then showing / hiding multiple fields based on a condition.

    Thanks for your help :o)

    P.S. Please confirm that there is no concept of "pages" in the new layout. So I don't keep sleuthing around to see where that feature is hiding :o)

    I also now understand this issue on the new form layout. Thank you for mentioning it.


    I believe it is glitch on how the Condition function was applied to the new form layout. So I will report this to our higher team support so that they can review and determine a fix to this loophole in the skip page condition feature when using new form layout.

    Unfortunately for now, you will have to manually edit or manage to include the fields you wanted to show/hide in the conditions that will be affected every time you make new changes to your form design.

    We will notify you here for any news/updates on the status of the report I submitted.

    Thanks.

    I confirm this for you. You can refer to them as "Sections" instead.

    Hi,

    Mentioned feature is now available. It is now possible to skip to another card based on condition.
