    timer prior to pagebreak?

    Asked by mattox8900 on July 03, 2013 at 07:50 PM

    Hi there,

    I am planning to create a form with multiple page breaks, with a visible timer such that the 'next' button is effectively clicked every 5 mins.

    Is anyone aware of a method to achieve this?

    I understand the timer you wanted on your form. I have encountered such test before.

    I am afraid we don't have such features yet. I will go ahead and request the feature and you will be updated through this thread.

    I also would like for you to check this update we had on the "Duration Time" that you can also use to track the duration of the time the form is being filled.


    Thank you so much for using JotForm.

    You should probably copy the form source code to your web site and use JavaScript to implement such feature. Here is how you can get the form source code. Open the form on the Form Builder:

    1. Open "Setup & Share" tab on toolbar,

    2. Click on "Embed Form"

    3. Click on "Source Code" and copy the code provided.
