    REALLY excited on what I am able to create using your new APP function. A couple of questions/comments:

    1. Can I change the order of pages once created?
    2. Wish all link options would allow me to get to an APP page. I want an ICON and background image on a BUTTON but since I cannot do that I created a link and figured out the URL to another APP page. It looks like it opens a new window but prefer it to stay within the app. Would be AWESOME if you can all the app page link option to LINK and well as IMAGE widgets.
    3. Can I change the text color of a LINK widget? Got the ICON color changes but not the TEXT.

    I'm only 2 days into developing apps but so far, REALLY AWESOME! Thanks!

    Hi, thank you for contacting support.

    1. Can I change the order of pages once created?

    Unfortunately, you cannot move the pages but you can move the elements inside that specific page to another. You can do not by simply clicking and dragging the element to the page where you want it to be moved. See the image attached:

    2.Wish all link options would allow me to get to a page. I want an ICON and background image on a BUTTON but since I cannot do that I created a link and figured out the URL to another APP page. It looks like it opens a new window but prefer it to stay within the app. Would be AWESOME if you can all the app page link option to LINK and well as IMAGE widgets.

    We do have a Button element but it has only five capabilities and it can only navigate to the pages in the app but you can add the URL of another app to be opened once the button is clicked. See the image attached:

    3. Can I change the text color of a LINK widget? Got the ICON color changes but not the TEXT.

    Unfortunately, we only have icons and background colors available for the Link Widget for now. See the image attached:

    I hope this clarifies your concern.

    Thank you.

    Having trouble embedding calendar content into the app. Please see this short video:

    https://www.screencast.com/t/0nU6Jvmr

    I've tried iframes, the iframe widget and scripts (but that does not work). I prefer NOT to link to external page. Any suggestions?

    Hi there,

    Happy to help!

    I did watch your video; however, the sound was extremely muffled and it was hard to hear, so I'm afraid that it was difficult to hear the specifics of the issue.

    Regardless, I was able to see where you're grabbing the iFrame of the calendar to embed into the Paragraph field: in the recording, I couldn't see if there was an option to get the source code instead. Are you able to get the source code instead?

    If possible, could you kindly re-record your video for better sound quality so we can fully understand the issue?

    I'm wondering if we can adjust some of the iFrame code: could you also kindly paste it to our thread here? I have made a clone of your form but want to ensure that we have the correct code to modify as needed.

    We look forward to your response.

    Here is the iframe code:

    <iframe name="cw_frame" width="100%" height="1200" src="https://www.calendarwiz.com/calendars/calendar.php?crd=cordovacouncil&cid[]=253055">Your browser does not support inline frames or is currently configured not to display inline frames.</iframe>

    Source code option is a script so understand that will not work

    <script src="https://www.calendarwiz.com/cwlist/cwresponsive.js/?crd=cordovacouncil&view=list&cid[]=253055&calwidth=100%&calheight=1200&mobilepref=mobile"></script>

    I will work on a rerecord and send shortly.

    Hi again,

    Thank you for sending that over!

    The sound quality was perfect this time around: we appreciate you re-recording that.

    My apologies for not asking earlier: could you kindly confirm the URL of the form that you've based this app on or the URL of the app itself? I'm having a hard time finding one that matches the title in your screencast in your account.

    We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding through this process!

    Hi,

    I tried finding a workaround with your concern but I cannot seem to find one. Jotform Apps has no option yet to do what you have shown on your recorded video. I would suggest embedding the external page URL as it would be the nearest solution I can suggest or create a form that would suffice the requirement you want to achieve. I can also create a feature request if you wish to add this feature to Jotform Apps.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    I just have tested to embed the calendar again using this link https://www.calendarwiz.com/calendars/calendar.php?crd=cordovacouncil&cid%5B%5D=253055 and I was able to embed the page successfully.

    1641603359_61d8e11fc7282_

    Here's the app URL: https://app.jotform.com/220067939695974

    Could you please check if the calendar is showing on your end?

    We look forward to your response.
