    How do I use the Anchor icon to link to different areas in my form?

    Asked by angiehills on March 30, 2014 at 05:45 PM

    Isn't the anchor icon to 'anchor' one place in my form & then from another link it to jump there? I can't figure out how to do it and can't find instructions.

    My form is VERY long & I am splitting it up in sections (but all on 1 page) and using the collapse feature & text for Menu/Section titles & breaks. At the end of leach long section - I want a link that says 'Click to Return to Menu & Close' and them click and it link to a text area above the collapse.

    Is this possible? I seemed to be able to add an anchor name to the 'Click to Return' - but I have no idea to link it to the other text. I don't see a feature or option under links.

    Hello angiehills,

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

    Do you want to click on a link and want to go to a specific location of your form? Here are the steps to achieve your requirement:

    1. Add a "Text" field in your form to create a anchor tag where you want to jump. Please check the screenshot below:

    2. Go to the other "Text" field to create a hyperlink on click of which you want to jump to the anchor above and add the jump location. Check the screenshot below:

    Please take a look at the following form and see if this is what you want to achieve:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/40888551448971?
