    Any way to skip to a page from a Free Text portion?

    Asked by racheldoran on October 08, 2012 at 02:24 PM

    Somewhat hard to explain, but I have a form in which I've placed California State Standards into free text. After reading these standards I want my colleagues to move to another page where sample lessons are given for that specific grade. Is there a way to put a submit button in the free text so that after they read the standards they may click it and be lead to a subsequent part of the form?

     

    Any suggestions would be great. Thank you!

    Your Free Text are hidden/displayed by conditions, am I correct? If so, well you can instead add a page break on your form then add another condition which will skip to a subsequent part of your form if the required option is selected.

    If this information isn't what you need, please provide more details relating to the form you are working on so we'll be able to provide a more accurate suggestion.

    Thanks!

    I'm fairly new to this, so I may not be understanding you, but wouldn't that do the same thing as a text area (just more neat looking)? I want users to click a specific box.. be lead to a page or text area (does not matter to me) and read some standards... from there I want them to go to another text area or page that is specific to those standards so ultiamtely, specific to the original box they selected. I want it to be a train of text areas/pages that are specific to that original box. I completely understand how to navigate the "conditions" aspect, but I am having trouble finding a way to go from text area/page to another text area/page because there is nothng for users to click to lead them to that second text area/page. Does this make sense? Any help would be greatly apprecated! Thank youuu

    @racheldoran

    Hi, our colleague NeilVicente's suggestion is about using the Condition Logic in form, specifically, the skip page method when using the page break field.

    Something similar to this demo form.. Select only one of the few check box (K,1,2, or 3). The radio button field could have been ideal to use for this to restrict selection to single only (instead of the checkbox multiples)

    Please inform us if the method suggested will not do. And we can discuss for further suggestions/methods.=)

    Thanks.
