    Use of page breaks and/or form collapse tool to control what is displayed

    Asked by tillmaj on May 23, 2014 at 07:33 PM

    I have combed through the help documentation and attempted to figure this out by myself, but I'm having no luck finding a similar situation.  I have the following form:

     

    http://www.jotformpro.com/form/41416886147966

     

    I am attempting to create the following logic:

    User reaches area of form titled "CATALOG YEAR"

    If user selects Catalog Year 2010-2011, user is directed the page with the heading "2010-2011 Catalog".  Upon finishing their selections on this page, user would hit Submit and be done with the form.  I would like the option for the user to go back, but not have a "next" option.

    If user selects Catalog Year 2011-2012, user is directed to the page with the heading "2011-2012 Catalog".  Upon finishing their selections on this page, user would hit Submit and be done with the form.  I would like the option for the user to go back, but not have a "next" option.

    If user selects Catalog Year 2012-2013, user is directed to the page with the heading "2011-2012 Catalog".  Upon finishing their selections on this page, user would hit Submit and be done with the form.  I would like the option for the user to go back, but not have a "next" option.

    etc.

     

    Based upon radio button selected under "CATALOG YEAR", the user should be directed straight to the page with that Catalog Year as the heading - they should not be able to view/reach any page with a different catalog year.  

    Once on the page with the "20XX-20XX Catalog"heading, the user should then have the option of clicking on a "back" button and going back to the "Catalog Year" section (so they can select a different year if they choose) OR clicking on Submit and going to the Thank You page.  

    I am unable to get this scenario set up.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi,

    In our Page Break tool, you have the option to hide buttons. Just click on its visibility and choose "Hidden":

     

    That should make it and prevent users on moving forward. Of course, the submit button should stay on each pages.

    Here's an example output: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/41430619396962. A clone version of your form.

    Thanks

    Thank you SO much for pointing out the visibility toggles on the page break area.

    Does anyone have any ideas how I can accomplish the show/hide functionality I'm trying to achieve?

     

    EDITED:  By making the "next" option invisible, I can now use the conditional logic that skips to certain pages to achieve what I'm trying to do, so this completes my request.

     

    You folks are amazingly responsive and flexible.  Much appreciated!!!
