    I would like to have a master form with a drop down menu. The drop down menu will contain names of other forms. I would like a user to be able to select a form from the drop down menu and then be navigated to a separate form. Is this possible?

    I see that you can reference pages within a form by using conditional logic. However, that feature doesnt work for my use case since I need to be able to reference other forms that have different "disable on dates" from the Form Settings.

    Hello @dkubik,

    Thank you for contacting our support team.

    Yes, your objective can certainly be accomplished. To do this, you will need to insert hyperlinks to your form and use the Form Conditions to Show and Hide those links based on the selection that the user makes in the dropdown field.

    I went ahead and made a sample form to replicate this functionality. You can visit my sample form via this link - https://form.jotform.com/202956952587067

    If this form is what you are looking for, feel free to clone it for yourself so you can see in detail how I built the form. Please see the user guides below for further assistance.

    Thanks for your response and solution. That is workable.

    Is there a more elegant way to accomplish this? It is a bit clunky to have a user select from a dropdown and then click a link. If there is a better way to do it I am open to your recommendations.

    Thanks again

    Not a problem, there is one other solution for this.

    Instead of using the Hide/Show condition to show the correct hyperlink, you may want to use the Redirect Thank You page condition to route the user to the correct link after submission. Please note that this method will require that your respondents actually submit the form to be redirected.

    Here is a sample from to replicate this functionality - https://form.jotform.com/202957221219958
