    Hi Jotform

    Loving jotform. Still trying to figure out parts of it.


    1

    Created a form for students to list books for sale. Please see 

    https://form.jotform.com/73505129184153

    It is very long. How do I break it up into a series of cards/screens? Ideally with an indicator at the top to track progress through the steps?


    ALSO,

    some students will want to sell more than one book. I do not want to make them repeat the info about themselves, their college, etc.

    How would we set it up so they could submit multiple books and not have to repeat anything? We would have them put in general info, then info about book 1, then info about book 2, then info about book 3, etc.

    And when we get the chart of data, it needs to be clear that the same person is connected to all those books (that is, entries from several people with several books each cannot be scrambled if they are online at the same time). And if they stop after some number, or accidentally disconnect, or whatever, we want to save whatever info they have submitted as they go along, so they do not risk losing everything if they mess up.


    Thanks!

    Please note that you can add "Page Break" field in your form to create form with multiple pages. You may like to take a look at the following guide which should help you:   https://www.jotform.com/help/119-How-to-Create-Multi-Page-Forms 

    You can also add "Progress Bar" widget in your form to track the progress of form.

    I have moved your second form to a new thread so that we can address it separately. You will be answered in the following thread:  https://www.jotform.com/answers/1325789

    Thanks! Very cool.

    Page Break widget is super.

    Is there something like "Progress Bar " widget, but showing the page progress instead of the field progress?

    We saw Form Tabs widget, but the little pyramid shapes are really not attractive. It would be better if the widget offered a choice of designs.

    Thanks

    Unfortunately no, you may however customize the shapes in the form tabs using CSS code.
