    Hi I'm looking to place a cookie on a user after filling out a form. The form is embed on the page using the javascript embed code. If the user has already filled the form out, I would like to redirect to a new page without the form. Is this possible to do when embedding a form like this?

    Any guidance is much appreciated.

    Unfortunately, setting up cookies using JotForm is not possible. However, you may consider setting up a custom Thank you page by setting up the cookie and host it on your web server. You might need to program the web page where the form is embedded to display the form or redirect the user to another page based on the cookie.

    Would implementing a method similar to what is described in this thread work for me?
