    Does jotform handle multi-page forms?

    Asked by johnarain on July 26, 2011 at 06:37 PM

    We are working on a site that will accept reservations for phone calls from Santa this Christmas. We are raising funds for a number of charities across the country and we have some specific needs in a Joomla based site for a  forms reservation system that gathers data from customers and puts the data into a MySQL data base. We want to create a site that breaks up the questions we ask during the booking of a call from Santa into a number of customer questions in a multipage form instead of one long form on a single page. Can jotforms do this as follows:

     

    Registration Page one might be: "Family Information" and contain 5 -8 questions/input areas, once completed customer selects next or submit and the next Registration form part appears and then the next and so on...

    Registration Page two might be: "Child Information" and contain 7-12 questions/input areas.

    Registration Page three might be: "Select Your Call Date" and contain 1-12 items that the customer chooses

    Registration Page four might be: "Call Checkout Page" for customer to add credit card info and pay for call.

     

    I would like to discuss this with someone from your development team. We will be working with some heavyweight charities and companies all across the U.S. that support them and I want to be sure that jotform will work the way we envision it.

    I would be happy to supply my phone contact info if needed.

    Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hi Barry

    Yes, you can construct multi-page forms with our product by inserting a Page Break between each section.

    So, to build your form you would put all the fields you want to appear on page one and then insert a page break (a line with Next and Back buttons) put all of the fields for page two, include a page break and so on. When page breaks are inserted into a form, a final page break containing just a Back button is automatically added so that users can go back and review their entries on previous pages before submitting the form.

    To better understand what I mean, have a look at this form. Only two page break fields were inserted.

    If you need clarification on anything, please let us know.

    Thanks.
