Application Form: Drop Down Contract?

  • Profile Image
    Asked on July 28, 2011 at 04:48 AM

    I have a client that wants me to create free Application Form and at the very bottom he wants some type of button or something that says "Read Contract" that will drop down a long text contract to read and at the bottom has an "I agree to the Terms" or "I Do Not agree to the Terms". If they click the "I agree" button, it would submit the form. If the click the "Do Not Agree" button it would just roll the contract page back up.

    Is something similar to this possible?



    BTW - I just found your site - where have you beem the past few years!!!

    Hi choreo,

    First of all, thank you for choosing JotForm.

    There are many ways to solve your problem. You can use JotForm's Form Collapse to hide and unhide your Terms and Agreement and just let your users know that once forms are submitted, it will automatically mean that they're accepting your T&A. Another option is to use checkbox with the help of Conditional Logic. Please refer to the figure below.

    The Submit button will only appear if the user checked the "Click here for the Terms and Conditions" or make it as required.

    First, navigate to your form and add a check box into the form template.

    2) Click on the check box form and select "Options"

    3) Delete the original content and replace with the following html code then click OK:

    Click here for the Terms and Conditions

    This is the basic code for adding a hyperlink. You can slightly modify the above code to suit your requirements.

    4) Click the "Required" button in the toolbar to make the check box a mandatory field. Then save the form and preview it.

    The resulting form should look like this. The hyperlink will open in a new window.


    Here is an example of a form that can only be submitted if the Terms and Conditions are agreed to:

    Terms and Conditions must be checked to reveal submit button


    Should any problems be encountered with the link, try the alternative method provided by Aytekin in this forum thread. Hope this helps.
