How to allow client to go back & forth between form pages while also having required elements for submission?

    Two q's: 1) how do I have required elements *and* allow a person to progress through the form?  For instance, the client may want to view the later pages. I have the "back" & "next" buttons enabled, but I get errors if I leave the 1st page blank but want to go to the next page.

     

    Secondarily, I'd like to test or perhaps even print the form to get a sense of it in its entirety. How do I do this?

    Thank you!

    If you want to allow your users to navigate through the form without having to fill the required field, you will need to add the Form Tabs widget o your form and set "Allow navigation without validation" option to YES.

    You can test the form in preview mode.

    Or you can get the URL of your form and open it in a browser to test it.

    This was incredibly helpful. Thank you!
    Can you tell me more about encryption? I’m guessing I’ll have 1 or 2 families who will need assurance.
