    Hi everybody ...

    Sorry, I've been demanding lately, in the middle of trying to build an important app with Jotform.

    Multi page forms are great, but Is there a better way to build a menu allowing the user to navigate to multiple pages?  There seems to be three ways:

    1) back / next button

    2) Form Tabs

    3) Conditional Skip

    None of these makes it possible to build a simple menu with links to 8 or more pages.

    1) Back/next only give you a forward option, not multiple pages

    1) Tab area is too small; not enough real estate at the top of the form for much text, images, or explanation;

    3) Conditional skip requires at least two actions to move to any page.

    Presumably there's a javascript or other command that is the basis of the Forms Tab widget?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Unfortunately our forms work like a single form with flow in mind.  Thus back and next are only able to take you to the part immediately before or after the section of the form you are in.  This makes is much more difficult to separate it into sections as it seems you are finding out.  You can however use the source code for your form and make changes to the tabs to allow for extra real estate.

    With this, you can edit the look and feel of your page as you wish without the constraints the form builder imposes.  Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with and we will be happy to do so.

    Thank you for using Jotform!
