    Hi,

    You can create multipage forms using our Page Break tool. Please check this guide: -How-to-Create-Multi-Page-Forms

    If you want to bring users into the next pages based on a field selection in the first field, you can do that using our Skip to a page or end of the form condition:

     

    In the settings, you can do it as:

     

    So if the full name field is empty, the user will be redirected to the Page 2 after he/she clicks the Next button.

    If you require any further assistance, feel free to contact us.

    Thanks

    Thanks for your reply... I understand the Page Bereak tool but I'm looking to creat a regular button link that will take me to the next form.  Reason being because I will have options like 3 buttons that the user will choose from to decide there next input.  Can you have 3 links inside a pageBreak tool?

    Hello,

    Can you have 3 links inside a pageBreak tool? Sorry but that's not possible

    What you can do is  use a conditional logic to show and hide fields then use 'Text' tool to embed your other form. 

    Here's a detailed guide of how you can achieve this.

    1. Use conditional logic - https://www.jotform.com/help/196-How-to-Hide-or-Show-Multiple-Fields-at-Once-Based-On-a-Single-Conditional-Entry

    2. Use Text tool

    3. Grab the iframe code of your other form then embed it to your main form.

    Please see this sample that when Form 1 is selected it will show the form 1 embed to Text tool and when form 2 you will see the other form embedded to text tool.

    Thnaks for your reply... (Instead of a radio btn option i would like the options to be btn links)

     

    How do I create links that will take me to another form or show/collapse to the next form?

    I know you want to add a button in the first page, each button has a corresponding link which redirects you to another page or to another form. But unfortunately, custom button linking to another page of the form isn't possible. Linking button "to another form" may be possible. But the question is how are you going to submit on the first page/form if you have some fields on it?

    The suggestion given by my colleague would accomplish your requirements. Otherwise, you can use custom thank you URL: -Redirecting-Users-to-a-Different-Page

    Thanks
