    How do I get information entered on a form to stay when someone clicks a link veiws it and returns?

    Asked by twild on August 04, 2014 at 12:30 PM

    I have created a form with a series of radio buttons asking if you agree or not to a series of linked agreements. Prior to each radio button I have a "click here to read" text spot of the agreement linked. The problem I am having is that when the person clicks to veiw the linked agreement then returns to the form, the contact information and any checked radio buttons clear and will have to be re-entered. Can you please help? I need this to go out today.

    The easiest way to accomplish this would be to just have the links open in a new tab.  To do this, add this code to your link:

    target equals"_blank"

    Change out the equals for =

    An example link would look like this:

    <p><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>Parent/Student Handbook : <a target="_blank" href="http://www.fscsmn.org/sites/faithfulshepherdcs.new.rschooltoday.com/files/files/Parent%20Student%20Handbook%202014-15.pdf" rel="nofollow noopener" >Click here to view.</a></strong></span></p>

    This will open each link in a new tab rather than the same page.

    You can also allow the form to save based on session data:


    Please let us know if you have any further questions and we will be happy to help.
