    Unfortunately, that wont be possible within the JotForm platform.

    Possible workaround is with "Custom URL" in thank you page. In this custom thank you page you can write a custom code to redirect a user back to your webpage.

    The best way is to open the form in a new page. (web design), so when you close it, you get back to website... it works for me!!!

    Create an html page with the code below called thankyou.html



    <script type="text/javascript">

    function delayred(){

        window.location = "http://yourwebsite.com"





    <body onLoad="setTimeout('delayred()', 5000)">

    <h2>Thank you for your Submission</h2>

    <p>Please wait while you are being redirected to our website...</p>



    upload it in your website and use a custom url for your thank you page. e.g.


    You will need to change the value of yourwebsite.com to your preferred website address and the 5000 value which is equal to 5 seconds can also be change base on your preference.
