    Using the form without submit button?

    Asked by westonanowling on November 01, 2013 at 08:59 AM

    Hello, i first of all want to say i love this site and how it's saved me a huge amount of time and effort! plus the forms looks great! so thank you!


    My question is this, we already have a submit button in the site we use for submitting forms, all we need is the form itself, but the problem seems to be nothing saves over if we use say a check box or something, is there anyway for that to save without have to place a submit button on the form since we already have one?! thanks in advance

    I'm having challenges understanding exactly what you are trying to achieve, you can delete the submit button of a form but you will not able to submit/save the form info without it.

    Perhaps you can centralize both forms in one unique form,  in order to have one submit button only.

    Could you elaborate more your question , show as an example or a link .

    as you can see it has an eletronic sign at the bottom it saves it already?! so in order to save stuff like checkboxes do we also need to have a submit button or is there a way to save what we input when we hit save on our end and move on to the next page?!

    in that case you will need to add a submit button to that form too, remember that forms are independents from your website, however if that previous-next button belongs to the JotForm form the user should click on next until the submit button appears.

    It would be helpful if you share with us the URL and a way to reproduce this workflow in order to give you better help.

    To be more practical, if you create a form with our services without a submit button the data will not be saved.
