    Can I set up a Data Preview on the last page with Ajax?

    Asked by FelixM on June 13, 2014 at 01:00 PM

    we are using your multi-stop form process. Over 4 form pages our users type in their data.

    Now we are planning to implement a data preview on the last form page. For that we need all prior entered data. 

    Is there a way to receive all entered data on the last form page? Can we request it via ajax or is there a way to render it into the form (e.g. into hidden fields)? 

    Every idea is appreciated!

    You can use prepopulated parameters and have this sent into hidden fields on your form at the end page.

    When you said " data preview " did you mean to have a way to let your users preview it? Or was it going to be your intention to have that hidden anyhow since you later stated this about into " hidden fields "?

    Alternatively, You could also just have a preview at the thank you page.

    Additionally, I would like to point out as per this thread that many of our features use Ajax. You could try mixing it with the form's source code to create your own custom output if you have that sort of programming knowledge.

    Hey there,

    thanks for your response. What we want to do is show our customers a PDF (which can be generated with HTML) in the end with all the data filled in.

    I see what you mean. We released a widget recently called Preview Before Submit, this widget will display entries when clicked. However, the preview is not in pdf format. The widget works along with pagebreaks which I believe is already added to your form. You can add the widget to the end of your form. You can find it under Widgets tab on the left navigation pane.

    You can read more about Preview Before Submit widget HERE.
