    An additional question related to this thread: https://hipaa.jotform.com/answers/3330762-customizable-button-to-link-to-a-url#6

    Is it possible to use CSS in the paragraph element to both hyperlink to a web address AND write the data entered into the form to the Jotform table?

    Thank you for reaching out. 

    Technically, no. Submitting the data entered into tables can only be done by actually hitting the submit button. However, you can change the name and look of the Submit button, and then set it to redirect to a different page.

    To edit the look of the submit button, you can use this code and place it the Form Designer Style CSS field.

    #input_2 {

    min-width: 95px;

    background-color: #9b9b9b; 

    border-color: #9b9b9b; 

    height: 30px;

    border-style: outset;

    border-color: #9b9b9b;

    cursor: pointer; 

    font: bold 15px arial, sans-serif;" 

    }

    Then you can set the Thank You page to redirect to a different URL.

    Let me know how it goes!

    The problem there is that the thank you page URL redirect is only to one URL. I need those buttons to go to different URLs.

    I understand. However, it is the only way to have what is placed in the form forward to the submission table.

    If you are open to suggestions, you can achieve what you want using a Single Choice field and Conditions that send users to an external URL, depending on what they chose, while still submitting data to the submissions table. It would look like this:

    Additionally, here is the form if you want to clone it and have a closer look at the conditions: https://form.jotform.com/212575823658970.

    However, I can also open a feature request, if you'd like.

    Please, let me know.
