Why are people able to skip a required Jotform field and still send the form?

    I am receiving many emails without all the required fields filled in. This is costing me money for leads that are not complete. What can I do about this? Is it they are not entering it or is it that Jotform is not recording it. How can we fix this.

    This form is in the account of beachandforestrealty and located at the attached url.

    We are sorry about this, this usually happen when browsers Javacript is disabled or broken, hence you can bypass Form's Required Fields. I can see that your recent submissions has been filled in and those blank are from the past days, so I am hoping that this issue won't happen again.

    Let us know if the problem still persist from now on so we can forward/ask our developes about this certain issue.

    Again, we are sorry about this.

    This issue might be corrected by embedding the form using the iFrame code instead of the javascript one,  as it will prevent other js code to interfere with form's code.

    Please give it a try or let us know if you need further assistance

    I agree with Jeanette. Please use the IFrame code. It is probably happening because of a JavaScript conflict in your page. (And, this is exactly why when there is a javascript problem on your page we let the data come to you. Otherwise, people wouldn't able to submit the form and you wouldn't even be aware of the problem.)

    Here is how you can get the IFrame code. Open your form on the Form Builder:

    1. Open "Setup & Embed" tab on toolbar,

    2. Click on "Embed Form"

    3. Click on "iFrame".

    I hope this helps. Please let us know how it turns out.
