    Can I have my Jotform automatically close after submisson?

    Asked by swak on July 01, 2013 at 07:21 PM

    I'd like to have my for close after 5 seconds on the "Thank You" page.  I know there are ways to close pop up windows after 5 seconds automatically, but they have to be openned by a java script button first so I can't just make a custom thank page that closes on its own.  Can you provide me with this function?

    When you say "close after 5 seconds", after the 5 seconds do you want the form to reload when the thank you page closes? Is the thank you message to appear in a pop-up or not? I just want to be clear about your request. Some time ago, I provided a solution for another user with a similar query. Although I can't presently locate the specific thread, here's the demo form. Submit it and see what happens. Is that the sort of functionality you were thinking of?
