    Hello all.  I've got 2 questions regarding my rather complex form.


    Question 1:

    When I rename a page am I renaming the page where the Back/Next buttons I clicked reside, or am I renaming the next page?

    For example, this screenshot is from the second page of my form:

    15470677482019-01-09 Jotform help - PageIf I click on the Back/Next buttons there, am I renaming the second page or the third page of my form?

    I ask because when I renamed my last page, it changed the first page name to match.  So it seems like you can only rename the next page.  That's not what I expected to happen.


    Question 2:

    Depending on what a user selects on for my "Part type to be certified" question on page 2 will greatly affect what pages have to be completed.

    For example if P510 is selected from the dropdown then the user won't have to complete pages 10-15.

    I tried to implement this by using Conditions to hide pages based on what was selected for the "Part type to be certified" question.

    However, when I go through the form the pages which should be hidden still appear.

    Is this because I have other Conditions which require fields in those hidden pages be shown based on answers to other questions?

    I assumed that Jotform conditions would work like Excel conditional formatting where lower number conditions (e.g. conditions which are at the top of the conditions list) would override higher number conditions (e.g. conditions which are at the bottom of the conditions list).

    Is there a way for my various Hide Pages conditions to take precedence over the Show Fields conditions?

    1) You are renaming the current page. However, the first and the last page share the same page name due to the way it is implemented at JotForm.

    2) The issue might be caused by separate Hide Page conditions. Please kindly try to combine the Hide Page conditions like this.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
