    How can I add a CANCEL button beside the SUBMIT button?

    Asked by simmonscomputer on July 17, 2013 at 09:46 PM

    I want my users to be able to click a CANCEL button if they don't agree with the TERMS listed.  When they click CANCEL it takes them to a URL of my choosing.  I want the CANCEL button to look like the SUBMIT button and be right beside it.  Currently I am trying the Free Text (HTML) object to type in HTML code to  create the button with the HYPERLINK.  However whenever I try this button that I have created, it submits the form!  I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong.  Please help me add a CANCEL button that takes me to a URL instead of submitting the form.

    You can add as much submit buttons to your form as you want.

    However, every button will submit the form to our server.


    I would like to recommend you to check the following article:

    Conditional Logic on Forms

    With conditional logic you will be able to redirect your users to the different URL's depending on your custom rules (conditions). Unfortunately, you can not set the condition based on the clicked Submit button, but there are enough options that can be used as a work around.


    You can create a drop down or a radio button to choose weather they accept the terms or not and from there we could direct each to a differelt URL link.

    Let me know if you need further assistance on this so that I can walk you through the process.

    Thank you
