    You can redirect to a 2nd form when submitting your 'first' form whether that be form be on the same JotForm account or not.

    This may work, is it possible to default auto populate the fields in form 1 to say "subs renewal" to get round the field validation tool, I would also need to include some text at the top of form offering advice, can this be done on the form itself or would that have to be on the webpage where the form resides. Should I take this route will from two perfom in its own right or would form 1 be some kind of parent.

    Yes, we would be able to prepopulate fields in the first form to say 'sub renewals' 

    Do you have the form created yet? We can show you how to do it. Its easy enough.


    You can put text above the form either on the form itself (with the Free Text (HTML) tool), or on the webpage in which its to be embedded, its really your choice, but it may be easier to put it on the form. 


    Form 2 will operate in its own right. 


    Its still quite difficult for me to get an idea of exactly what you are trying to do, so please keep asking question and link us to any form you are working on, so we are in the best position to help you as quick as possible.

    ok understand here is a link to the form we are using   http://www.saen.org.uk/complaints-form/  I also need to renew peoples subscriptions, the info I need to collect is name , address, tel no, email add, membership number, most of this info is on the form, what I am attempting to do is to add to this form rather than create a new purpose form although  a purpose form would be better, the reason for this although I have control over the forms I dont have direct access to to the website, so is difficult to upload address for a new form, our webmaster donates his time and we have agreed to a single update per month we have already used decembers update.

    is there a way that I can have a new form that is available via a link form exisinting page.

    If I understood correctly, you cannot update the form's embed code into your webpage, only your webmaster can but he does offer his time once a while.

    However, if you have access to your Jotform account where the first form is , you can easily add a link to a second form into the first form using the methods my colleague fxr has explained to you. You can paste the link of the second form which I understand it will be into a free account (you can create it into your paid account as well)  This can be done into the first frm via a Thank You page custom URL or an HTML field.
