    Auto- redirect link on thank-you page

    Asked by ialig on July 08, 2010 at 05:00 PM


    It would be nice to have an Auto- redirect link on thank-you page. I plan to use your form in facebook so after user receives the "thank-you" page, they have to click to go somewhere else instead of being auto-directed.

    Do you want users to be auto-redirected or do you want them to click on a link on the Thank You page?

    If you would like them to be auto-redirected, simply use the "Custom URL" option on the "Thank You" button.

    If you would like them to get to a Thank You page where they can click on a link to go to another page, then you should use the "Thank You message" option instead and then create a link on the Thank You page.

    thanks for your answer, actually I was looking for a thank-you page that shows the standard

    "thank-you" message then auto-directs after 3-5 seconds back to a site like a facebook page.

    That is the behavior I would be after.

    I realize I could do a link back to facebook, but then I'll need to build a separate "Success" tab at facebook which is not ideal. Does that make sense?

    It is little difficult to do that on Facebook. If you have a regular HTML web site, I can provide the code to accomplish this though.

    I would be interested in an auto redirect just back to my home page if you could provide the code for that

    That's possible but the script should be injected on your custom page not on JotForm's thank you page since we do not support it anymore. You can use the following script for redirection.

    <script type="text/JavaScript">

    redirectTime = "5000"; //per millisecond (5 seconds)

    redirectURL = "http://www.google.com"; //redirect URL

    window.onload = function() {

    setTimeout("location.href = redirectURL;",redirectTime);



    We also support Custom URL where your form users will be redirected to a specific page after form submissions just like what I've mentioned above. http://www.jotform.com/help/38-How-to-Redirect-to-a-Page-After-Form-Submission
