    Hello kunliang.lee,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly.

    When your form is submitted, do you want to display all the user input in one page? 

    Do you think that displaying the submission data in your thank you message will be an acceptable solutions? You can display all the submission records in your thank you message. Please check the following from and see if this is something will be of any interest to you:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/40305334443949

    If the above form gives you an output which is close to your requirement, the following guide should help you in achieve this:  http://www.jotform.com/help/201-How-to-Post-Answers-to-Thank-you-Page

    Thank you!

    Unfortunately, there is no way to do this from JotForm's form builder capacity.  You can probably create your own code that will do this but it will require you to code.  

    You can also allow users to edit their submissions if you provide them an edit link on the autoresponder email that they will receive.  You can learn more on this user guide on how to add edit links on your autoresponder email alerts of your form.

    Just in case any of the developers might get a light bulb solution for this, I'm submitting a feature request ticket. But I cannot guarantee that this can be possible, be developed, or implemented anytime soon.  But rest assured, as soon as we have this feature, we'll inform you right away.

    Thanks.

    While our developers work on a way to implement such a feature in the form builder, have a look at this small demo which uses a script to achieve the functionality you want. Since customized scripts can't be used on our system, you would have embed a copy of your form's full source into a web page and add the script there. Of course, the script used in the demo would need to be edited to suit your form.

    Hi

    Thanks for all your help. 

    Yes, it's what i meant. but I am not a programmer trained and I am using it directly under jotform now which means that I do not want it to be embeded into any website at the moment. 

    I will wait for the developers to finish the work and use it on the form later, if possible.

     

    Thanks for all your help.

    Just to add, if the autoresponder can receive what was selected, it would be marvellous!

     

    Thanks for your efforts!

    To my knowledge, autoresponders already display only what would have been selected in dropdowns (pulldowns), radio groups and checkbox fields by users. If you want to have only answered fields displayed, enable the Hide Empty Fields on Emails feature.

    Please let us know if you need clarification on this.


    Thanks

    @ kunliang.lee

    The reason for the Hide Empty Fields feature to fail is if the e-mail template is modified or customized.

    You can see this in the hint text when setting the feature on.

     

    You can try adding a new Autoresponse e-mail and leave it to default.

    Test submit and check if empty fields are now not included in the e-mail results.

    Hope this help. Inform us if issue persist on this.

    The feature request ticket on this was already on the hand of our developers. They will provide response here when avaialable.

    Thanks.

    @ahmedaallam,

    The widget has been renamed from Check Input to Preview Before Submit.

    Thank you.
