    @cheekychapple2k2,

    Thank you for contacting us. Are you referring to the number that shows on top when the Form Tab widget is used? I'm actually on the 2nd page but the highlighted is page #1. Please confirm if this is what you are referring to so we can forward this to our dev team to rectify the problem.

    yes, that is exactly what i mean... i wanted people to be able to see what page they are on, and this does not show them that... but you can use it to click through. ALSO, it would be VERY GOOD, if when the form page is filled in, the TAB would change colour to show that it is COMPLETED

     

    How does that sound? 

     

    thanks

    I guess the form tabs are just mainly for clickable tabs and doesn't follow the action when the next button is pressed. You can enable the progress bar so your user will see their progress on each page. Please see this on how to enable it.

    1. Go to Setup & Embed

    2. Go to Preferences

    3. Advance Settings

    4. Show Progress bar on Form then click on Enable

    This would look something like this:

    but that doesnt make sense, you cant have the tabs without the next and back, so why arent they linked... that is counter intuitive!!!

     

    can you get that fixed please?

     

    glad there is a progress bar, thats really handy!

    By the way, I have just completed my form, and it only shows 83% complete even though all of the 'required' questions are answered. I think the progress bar should ONLY track the 'required' questions that need to be answered... the rest is ancillary information.

     

    Please can you verify?

    @cheekychappie2k2,

    With regards to the "Form tab" widget feature I have forwarded a request to have the specific function added. With regards to progress bar concern may I request you to create a seperate thread for that so we can forward that as well to our dev team and add that in their future release. By the way the progress works that way as of the moment we'll have to send a request to have the feature added.

    We thank you for your cooperation.

    Hello, 

    I know this has been a long time - our apologies. 

    The Form Tabs widget has been fixed - Tab Location and Page skipping navigation now synced - clicking next will update the tab location. 

    We apologize this took so long - 

    Cheers!
