Tool request: Preview Form InputAsked by ronaldhutasuhut on December 27, 2013 at 09:06 PM
I would like to request a tool that let user who filled my form to preview data that they will send to me.
The data I mean is preety much like what I set up on the Email Alerts.
I don't know much about scripting but I think it's like using "echo" function on the .php file to show users what they typed in a form.
If there already a way to do this, please let know how to let user preview their input.
Thank you very much!
We have a workaround for that, check this tutorial: http://www.jotform.com/help/98-Confirmation-Page-Tricks
Let us know if you need further assistance or if you come across any issues with this guide. Thanks!
Hello Cris, Thanks for the tutorial. Unfortunately, it's not something I can use for my purpose.
The problem is user preview their input After the data sent. What I would to have is a button to preview user's data before they submit anything to me; I would receive too much notification if the user keep typing wrong input on the form. I think it happens because the form action with its exciting url (as shown on the source page) or its Class. The first submit button leads to Thank You page and Send the data in the same time.
I have tried something with Jotform. When I create a new html button that linked to my own handler php for the preview purpose, it still follow command from Jotform; the preview button showed the preview but I don't think it's from my handler, I guess it's a preview 'action' from jotform handler. Also, the preview button submitted the data: http://form.jotform.co/form/33638540617861
I've just created an example for what I need (this was made outside Jotform and with my own handler php, would Jotform do something to make the system like this?: https://googledrive.com/host/0ByP6Hlj8gzvicnA4b0J6MEdiVzQ/myForm.html
Please see demo form here. Let us know if this approach suits your requirements. Thank you
Yes, that's more like it, thanks! How do I insert js into my form?
Oh I see! many thanks. According to the last tips (if I get it correctly), I should be able to work with it if I just make a form with Jotform, copy the page source and modify the code? Is that allowed based on the Jotform terms?
@ronaldhutasuhut yes it is fine for you to copy the page source and it will not violate our Terms. In fact, we offer our users to embed the form using the form source code either by copying the generated embed source code or by downloading the files. Then you can host them on your own server and modify the code and add your own scripts.
If you are curious about the custom script I made here it is on this Pastie bin link http://pastiebin.com/52c6bbb621920 in which you can add on the source code. Please do let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you
