    How can I enable Multiple Submissions without having to reload the page?

    Asked by PositiveInvestment on January 25, 2013 at 05:51 PM

    I have a form where coaches can upload stats for their players; however, coaches have multiple players (an indefinite # of submissions) they need to upload for.  How can my form enable coaches to upload numerous submissions without having to refresh the page, reopen the browser, or go back to the submission form after thank-you message each time?

    Page URL:
    www.front9tour.com/upload

    Submissions reload message refresh

    The only thing that is coming to mind immediately at the moment that could maybe meet your request would be to just have your form automatically redirect to the form's url again right after it is submitted the first time then it will become automated and refresh the page to easily let coaches fill out the form a second, third, or even several more times.

     

    Please let us know if this is something that will work for you?

    Thanks for the tip.  I had tried that already.. The form just didn't even show up after pressing submit.  It seemed that the page re-loaded, but the form didn't.  Isn't there a way to make the form its own url? Maybe instead of embedding the form, I may just have to set it up as it's own page entirely.  At which point, the custom thank-you page referring back to the original url could work.

    @PositiveInvestment

    Each form you create has its own JotForm URL which can be found in a number of ways. One method would be to click the Preview button while the form is loaded in the form builder. Click the Preview button:


    If you click the preview's Open in new tab button, the form will load in a separate browser tab and you'll see the form's URL in the address bar (with a question mark on the end which isn't necessary).

    You could also copy the URL from the Preview window:


    Hopefully, this helps to clarify things but by all means, feel free to let us know if you need further assistance.

    But if I do your suggestion, the user has no way of knowing that the submission was successful.

    @Mdyhs,

    For example, you can add some information to the from to inform user that the form is being reloaded upon submission. We will also get back to you per your thread, I hope that we will have some work around for your case.

    What about if you are using an iframe?

    This thread is quite old.  The easiest way to do this at this time would be to change the forms thank you page to the forms URL:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/211-Setting-Up-the-Thank-You-Page

    This will redirect the user back the form again after submission.  This will work even in an iFrame.

    It works as in brings you to the form - but not to the page the iframe exists on the provides our users with needed information. I need the form to refresh within the iframe. Your solution does not do that.

    I have tested this. It does not work. It brings you to a page that houses just the form, no longer in the iframe.

    Do you have a solution for what I am trying to do?

    I am not quite sure what you are trying to accomplish.  Since this thread is quite old, would you mind creating a new thread describing the specific setup you are looking for.

    This thread is quite old and I believe is simply requesting to be redirected back to the form after a submission is completed.
