    Greetings, 

    I am interested in learning about the ability for a user who'se completed a form created from JotForm to be able to have a popup display which allows the user to share their participation in an event, upon completion of a form. So not only do they get a thank you but also a popup with the option to post to facebook. Is this something achievable? Let me know.

     

    Here is the link to the functionality we are hoping to use.

    https://developers.facebook.com/docs/sharing/reference/share-dialog

    Many thanks and hope it helps.

    Hi,

    Thank you for sharing this information. From what I know so far, our form does not have the capability yet to post in Facebook status the submission results.

    So, even if you have added your form to your Facebook pages, you still cannot automatically post its results in the FB status.

    I think your suggestion is similar to the JotForm Facebook Like button functionality but it pertains to the share dialog on the FB status page.

    I will forward your message to our higher team support so that it can be properly reviewed by the right technical personnel.

    We will let you know here for any status update when available.

     

    Thanks.

    What you can do is to change your Thank You URL to a page in your web site. On this page, you can have the Facebook Share button so that user can click on it to share their participation in an event. 

    See the "Custom URL" section here:
