    Hi there,

    I have created a form but I would need some information to get submitted before the rest of the form is completed. More precisely, I would like for Page 1 and 2 to get submitted right away and then the rest to get filled up:

    Hello! I believe that you're referring to this form: https://www.jotform.com/form/210805082513042

    There are some techniques to achieve this. One such technique is as follows:

    1. Disable the Next button on 'Page 2'
    2. Disable the Back button on 'Page 3'
    3. Create Submit button on 'Page 2'
    4. Include 'Get Form Page URL widget' in your form.
    5. Create a Redirect condition in your form; to basically detect if the page is being submitted from page 2; then submit the response data and then redirect the user to page 3. In this case, value of the redirect condition is: https://www.jotform.com/edit/{id}?jumpToPage=3
    6. Create an UNREQUIRE condition; in which we first check that if user is not on the 'Page 3', then simply unrequire all fields of Page 3, Page 4 and Page 5.

    This is shown in the screencast below: http://shots.jotform.com/patrick/Screencast%202021-03-23%2020-29-30.webm

    The form prepared in the above screencast is: https://www.jotform.com/edit/4923206010121335067

    Feel free to test it. But please note that the form 'back' and 'next' buttons won't show for admins as well while accessing the 'edit' link. If this solves your purpose; then you can implement the same functionality in your form.

    In case this doesn't solve your purpose; then let us know.

    Thank you!
