    objective is to post data when page 2 is completed but not tell user that the mandatory part is complete, continue to page 3 but if user does not complete page 3, data has already been posted. There is no data on page three , just an option to go to another url.

     

    So on page two, "submit" button is disguised as "next", go to page 3 then need button on page 3 to forward to a different URL.

    I hope I was clear,

    thx

    Let me try if I understand your idea correctly...

    The way I understand it, you want to be able to 'submit' within page 2 if all questions are filled-up.

    But can proceed to page 3 and submit, even if page 2 is incomplete.

    Please try test this form  http://www.jotform.me/form/22709130534447 and tell us if this is what you wanted to do.

    Will await your update.

    Thanks.

    As there is no data to collect on page three ( it is just a information page that when the user clicks a button, will take them to a URL) we want to submit when page two is finished and the go to page 3 and forward to URL from page three by clicking a button

    I don't think this is doable with JotForm.

    My suggestion would be using the normal process of page break, I mean completing the form until page 3 and then submit the form. Wouldn't it be the same since page 3 is just for info page? Also, if you'd like them to be redirected to a different URL after submitting the form, you can use Custom URL as your thank you page. Here's a guide for that: http://www.jotform.com/help/38-How-to-Redirect-to-a-Page-After-Form-Submission

    My question now becomes if on page 3, the user after reading the info page decides not to click the forwarding url button, how would I ensure that I still get the data from page 1 & 2.

    It sounds like page 3 can be a different form.

    If you have the user submit the information on page 2, you can redirect the user to a custom URL. This custom URL can be to a form with the information that you would like to show (page3).

    Simply select the "Thank You" icon and choose the "Custom URL" option and Insert the URL for the pge3 form. 

    Here is an example of that using a clone of one of your forms:

    Thanks, I now understand what you are trying to achieved. Unfortunately, that's not possible with JotForm in the way that JotForm uses separate page (thank you page) after a form is submitted.

    A workaround I could think (almost similar to what my colleague Ed provided above) is to use "thank you page" as your info page. You may try to use "Thank you message" as your thank you page and then write everything there, you can also add a button if you like. Test it with this form: http://form.jotform.me/form/22714543218450?

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately, I've changed the drop down survey question to a link since thank you page doesn't support conditions. Thanks.
