    How to setup Thank You page and control the form "action"

    Asked by bunkle on August 27, 2013 at 06:10 PM

    Two questions.

    1) What page does the users web browser go to after submission?

    2) How do I control what the form's action *does*? That is to say, what if I *don't* want the form to simply send an e-mail of field values? What if I want the form to take the input from the field, calculate a body mass index (or a earnings investment yield, or anagrams of the user's last name, or anything that I wish to program)? How can I tie a jot form to a third-party developed program?

    1. There is a setting for the Thank You page which you can configure when creating your form.

    Here is the guide Setting-Up-the-Thank-You-Page

    2. You can create condition logic for the form to control its "action". Review this guide Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic


    Hope this help. Inform us if you have further inquiry.
