    Can I create a confirm page?

    A page where the user can see what they typed in and can go back to fix it.

    Hi there,

    Sorry that isn't currently possible however you could achieve the same result by allowing the user to update their submission using an Edit Link.

    To create an autoresponder email and insert an edit link:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed tab, click Email Alerts > Add New Email

    2.  Choose Autoresponder email then click Next

    3.  Fill in Sender and Recipient Details for your autoresponder then click Next

    4.  Take a look at this screencast on how to insert edit links -  Inserting Edit Links

    5.  Save your form

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    Hi desouzam

    You can partly do what you want: You can have POST data sent to a customized result (Thank You) page but the user would have to complete a new form. To send POST data to a thank you page, load your form in the form builder and while on the "Setup & Embed" tab, click the "Preferences" toolbar button. Then click the "Advanced Settings" tab and to the right of "Send POST Data", select "Yes", click "Close Settings" and save your changes. (Please see our user guide for details.)

    One alternative would be to include an "Edit" link in an autoresponse which would enable users to access and make changes to their entries on the original form they would have previously completed.

    Of course, there's always the "low tech" solution: Include a message on the form telling users to check their entries before posting!

    Hopefully you found our recommendations useful. Please feel free to pose additional queries to our team. We will endeavour to help you to the best of our abilities.

     

    UPDATE: Desouzam, upon searching the forum for a possible workaround, I stumbled on this thread which might fit your needs but I haven't tested the solution provided.
