    Hi,

    I am creating a multi-language multiple choice exam. Students are asked what target language they will be taking at the start of the form and based on the language selected, I have setup several sections within the same form that students will jump to based on the target language. However, once they complete the exam section, I want all languages to jump to a common page where I then ask more questions before they submit the form. I cannot reorder this workflow since they exam needs to take place before answering the question on the common page.

    How do I get around needing to have a condition when the user clicks Next to jump to the common page? In Google Forms I can branch to another section of the form by just selecting which section to jump to with no conditions.

    Start page -> Select language -> Spanish Exam -> Common page -> Submit
    Start page -> Select language -> Korean Exam -> Common page -> Submit
    Start page -> Select language -> Armenian -> Common page -> Submit

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting support.

    Regarding "How do I get around needing to have a condition when the user clicks Next to jump to the common page?"

    I cloned the above form and I noticed that the form has page with link to google quiz. You can try embed your google form by using Iframe Embed widget https://www.jotform.com/widgets/iframe-embed

    Afaik, there's no workaround for this. In JotForm you need to set a conditional logic for the form to response a user input. Related guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/57-smart-forms-conditional-logic-for-online-forms


    JotForm have quiz templates that you might want to look at:

    I hope that helps. Let us know if you have further questions.

    Regards.

    Thank you for the quick response. I found a workaround by just setting a
    hidden field with a static value to satisfy having a condition. I would
    like to throw in a future feature request to have unconditional branching
    available.
    BTW, the widgets are getting blocked by my content filter when logged in as
    a student since the group has stricter rules. What URLs/domains should I be
    whitelisting so that the forms and widgets do not get blocked?

    Can you please share more information on how you would like your conditions to work so that we can send a feature request to our developers?

    You may try whitelisting our domain www.jotform.io since the widgets are loaded using this domain.

    Looking forward for your response.

    Similar to a programming GOTO statement, I would like the ability to jump
    to a specific page when the user clicks Next regardless of what fields have
    been filled in. The rule could simply be IF page x, GOTO page y on Next.
    This is useful when branching off to multiple pages and then converging
    back into a common page that must be filled out. The form I am building
    requires that students begin with a multiple-choice section in the target
    language chosen and when done, jump to a common page where they can record
    their voice responses.
