    Hello.

     

    I am trying to create a "multi stage form" Stage 1 will take the persons name, Stage 2 will ask them questions about their business and finally Stage 3 will submit the information from both stages 1 & 2 to an email address.

     

    Is this possible and have you got any documentation on how to do it?

     

    Thanks.

    Andy,

    I am not sure what exactly you mean by multi-stage but we do have a feature that allows creation of a multi-page form.

    To create pages in a form, simply drag a page break tool from the Survey Tools section to your form. Refer to the image below for more information:

    https://cms.jotform.com/uploads/image_upload/image_upload/global/2484_page%20break.jpg

    With the use of this tool, you can break down a long form into multiple parts. It is also possible to allow your users to save their progress for completion at a later time. The link below points to a guide that teaches how to do just that.

    Please do inform us if you require more information regarding these solutions.

    Regards

    Is it possible to create a multi page form and embed each page of the form within a different webpage?

    Hi Ben,

    Unfortunately, that is not possible. You may create a separate form and redirect each form after submissions to the second, third form.

    Thanks

    Hi Ben,

    You may want to create another form then redirect each after submissions to second, third, fourth and so on so they can continue.

     

    Thanks

    I don't know what that means...

    the whole point is to have ONE submission collected via multiple pages.

    Hi Ben,

    Unfortunately, I couldn't think of any possible workaround. You can create a Multi Page Form but you can't separate or embed each page to a different location.

    Please kindly create a separate thread about this as a Feature Request and I will escalate that to our Developers. We'll see if they will consider that one for future releases.
