    Hi,

     

    I have several conditions set for the form http://www.jotform.com/?formID=23535994376972

    two main issues.

     

    1. On the first page, without anything selected, the user can advance to page 2 eventhough there is a condition called skip to page 2 that should prevent this.

     

    2. After completing page two and clicking the next button, the form still shows page two data with page 3.

     

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    I cloned your form.. and without touching yet any of the conditions. I noticed that in the 1st page, none of the fields are required -- meaning the user can proceed to page 2 without doing anything on the 1st page.

    Would making a field required in the 1st page sufficient enough not to use condition that prevent from proceeding to page 2? 

    Test this form http://www.jotformpro.com/form/23544388583969 , so far I only made the fields in 1st page required. It will prevent you going to 2nd page.

    Pleae update us.

    Thanks.

    On the first page, the user must only be able to select one choice not both so making both required will not work.

    Thank you for the clarification.

    You can then just make one only required. It will still have the same effect -- the user cannot proceed to 2nd page without providing answer for that 1 required field.

    After doing this, can you please inform us if this already resolve the issue you have on the form?

    Thanks.

    I think you should probably use a Radio button on that first page and make that field required.

    e.g something like Do you have a LaserCorp # ? (yes/no)

    If yes is selected you can then show the textfield to take the # (which you could also make required).

    Then build your conditions around that yes/no answer..

    Do you think you could make something like that work?

    yes this will work. Thank you. I have done this but now have 2 issues

    1st issue

    if 1st option is selected and then user enters a 7 digit printer # and clicks next, the first page showes up on the second page

    2nd issue

    if the second option is selected, I wrote a condition that sends the user to page 3, but this is not working. These conditions are at the end of my many conditions that currently exist.

     

    thx

    the new url of my cloned form is

    This is happening due to the fact that you have some description Collapse fields on your form. Unfortunately, the Page Breaks and Form Collapses will not work together.

    Please simply remove your hidden Collapse fields, and then re-check the form.

    Then, if something is not working, please let us know.

    is the issue "HIDDEN" collpases and page breaks or any collapses and page breaks?

    Any Collapse elements, unfortunately, they are not compatible with Page Breaks.

    over the past two days, I have spent over 10 hours creating my 3 page form using page breaks and multiple collapses with muliples conditions!

    this issue existed from April 2012 when i searched it in your database.

    Why has it not been fixed??????

    i have a 3 page form with conditional fields

    How would you avoid form collapses?

    Please note that Collapse fields do not add the 'conditional pages' to your form, pages are being added by Page Breaks only.

    We are sorry for this bug, but we can not provide any ETA for when it will be fixed. Our Developers are quite busy, and they are working on their own priority list.

    Do you use your hidden Collapses for description purposes only?

    Hi there, 

    I believe the form is currently acting as you have requested.

    To clarify, I have not used any collapses (I deleted all collapse fields from your form and added page breaks)on this form.  In stead, I have used conditions to hide and show some of the fields according to the choices of the user.

    I have also used conditions to skip the toner page if it is not selected.  However, if both options are selected (toner and services), the user will navigate through both.

    Here is a video to show you the way it currently works:

    Let me know if you need further assistance!

    Hi Eduardo,

     

    I have tested the form, the issue is that if only toner is selected the form still navigates thru both toner and services so I am not able to see how it function when both are selected.

     

    thx

    Hi there, 

    Give this form a try:

    http://form.jotformpro.com/form/23546395400957?

    I have made some small changes to it:

    I changed the check box for radio buttons so that only one choice can be made 

    I removed the required settings to the fields for testing purposes.

    Let me know if that meets your requirements :)
