    Hello


    I'm currently using WPForms and I want to give your platform a trial and move onto your Gold upgrade but there are a couple of things I want to make sure that I can do before I make the move. I tried moving forms from there using your option to move existing forms but that didn't look very good at all. So I have these questions.

    1. When using WPForms, I have the ability to create a stand alone page right from the form builder and then that page is a page within our website without the need to do any codes. such as "https://sanfernandopediatrics.com/email-consent"
    2. I need to make certain form elements dependent on other form element responses. Is that possible?
    3. Is it possible to make changes to appointment availabilities for each form and how that is done?
    4. Will I be able to send clients different email confirmations based on certain answers and for abandoned forms as well?
    5. I added the Jotform plugin into WP but it doesn't look like it does anything, am I missing something?

    I look forward to hearing from you

    Thanks

    We will be glad to help you with your concern. Please find the answers to each of your questions below.

    When using WPForms, I have the ability to create a stand-alone page right from the form builder and then that page is a page within our website without the need to do any codes.

    Forms created in Jotform are stand-alone and have their own unique direct link. Reference Guide: Where-to-Find-My-Form-URL

    And, embedding forms created in Jotform does not require coding. You just need to copy the embed codes that are automatically generated as soon as you create a form. There are different embed codes that you can use based on your requirements. Reference Guide: Which-Form-Embed-Code-Should-I-Use

    I need to make certain form elements dependent on other form element responses. Is that possible?

    Yes, that would be possible with the help of conditional logic that you can create in your form.

    Reference Guide: Smart-Forms:-Conditional-Logic-for-Online-Forms

    Is it possible to make changes to appointment availabilities for each form and how that is done?

    We may need to ask you for more information about this requirement. But if you are looking for an option to disable the form for a certain period of time, I suggest that you check the following guides:

    How-to-enable-disable-a-form

    How-to-limit-submissions-in-a-form

    Enable-or-disable-a-form-based-on-time-using-conditions

    Will I be able to send clients different email confirmations based on certain answers and for abandoned forms as well?

    Sending email alerts conditionally based on a field answer is also possible. We have a complete guide that you may use as a reference when setting up the needed condition for your form.

    How-to-send-to-a-specific-email-address-based-on-a-selection

    However, for sending an email when someone did not finish the form, I'm afraid that email notifications and email autoresponders are only sent every time there is a successful submission.

    I added the Jotform plugin into WP but it doesn't look like it does anything, am I missing something?

    The Jotform Plugin in WordPress is used for embedding the form. More instructions about it can be found in this guide: A-guide-to-embed-forms-for-WordPress-users
