    Rather than go back one page, can it be configured to go back to a specified page?

    For example on Page 4, the back button would go to Page 2

    On page 6, the back button would go to Page 1

    No its not possible for a condition to trigger on a next button event. A skip condition must be tied to a field value. If that value is true, the next button will skip.

    As a workaround you could add short text fields, one on each page. Then give them page number values to be used in skip conditions. And set them as hidden.

    For example:

    Note that it is also not possible to use back buttons in conditions at all.

    However may I suggest you try a widget that allows you to navigate through your pages instead.

    You can use the breadcrumbs widget:

    You can use the form tabs widget:

    You can use the progress widget:
