    When a person visits my website I would like the form to slide across and make an offer.  Once the offer is made I would like to be able to either download a file or have the email returned and I send a file.  Is that possible with the jot forms.  Thanks

    Hi Leon,

    Yes, that is possible with Jotform. You can use this guide to Auto Popup your form when someone visits your webpage: http://www.jotform.com/help/203-How-to-Auto-popup-a-Lightbox-Form.

    With regards to "sending them back and email", that is possible by creating a form Auto Responder: Creating a Form Autoresponder. Put your download link in the Auto Responder so after they submit data into your form, they will received back and email containing your downoadable file.

    Let us know if you need help with this methods.

    Thanks

    One question,
    I just read the two pieces of information sent, I would like to know if the auto responder works in conjunction with the slider, or do I have to load each separately. For example:
    Slider says - download free copy of a file.
    Visitor puts in email address
    Slider closes and sends me an email to send the visitor the file.
    At that point how does the auto responder come into play?
    Or
    Do I really just need the auto responder?
    Trying to figure out the logic sequence.

    Hi Linda,

    Actually, the lightbox will not close when you hit submit button. It will just show you the thank you message. If you have the Auto Responser setup for your form, the user will receive that automatically after hitting submit button.

     

    Thanks
