    Can the answer to a YES/NO element trigger the submit form without having to answer and then hit submit?

    Do you mean that if a user click YES it will automatically Submit without needing to hit the Submit button ? If yes, unfortunately it is not possible.

    You need to hit the SUBMIT button every time you finish a form in-order to process it. However you can skip other fields depending on the choice you selected and go directly to the last slide/page using Show/Hide conditional logic.

    Please let us know if I have misunderstood your question.

    Please check my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/80587949924981

    I used the Skip Page condition if the answer to the Single Choice field is YES it will skip all the pages and go to the last page which is Submit button. Here's a guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/350-How-to-Skip-Pages-Using-Conditional-Logic

    Is that what you're trying to achieve? We'll wait for your reply. Thank you.

    You can also clone the demo form by following this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

     This would not work because you still have to hit the submit button. I was looking for a solution where they guess no answer would trigger the form to submit.

    I'm afraid that it is not possible to auto-submit the form in that way, we could forward this to our backend team for a possible implementation in our future releases if you wish?

    Thank you!

    Thanks. Please send the request along. Would be awesome to have conditional options that would submit or clear a form.

    The Clear Form Button can be added by turning ON the option in the Submit button advanced properties.

    I will make a request to our developers about being able to add a condition to submit the form when the user makes a choice in the Yes/No field. However, this doesn't sound like a good UX because if the user makes the wrong choice, the form is submitted and the answer cannot be changed. Then, the form needs to be refilled.

    We will let you know if this gets implemented.

    This option is not available on the new form layout and I was asking for conditionals that would trigger a submit or clear.  Not their actual buttons.

    That is correct.

    I have already made the request and we will let you know when there is an update on this.
