    Jotform redirection masking! (URGENT)

    Asked by itechnosoft on August 05, 2014 at 01:27 PM

    Scenario: Since I cannot save the user details until he submits the multipage form, I split this into 2 forms. One takes the details and redirects to the second.

    However I have an issue. Say if the 1st page is www.domain.com/index.html when it submits the form goes to www.domain.com/index2.html which is the next intended page, but I do not want him to see that page URL as the second form is embedded in index2.html and I have kept a strict check on index.html so he cannot get the same offer twice or else it fails the purpose of the promotion I have.

    How do I prevent that from happening in such a way where when he goes to the second page submission he still see's the same url? I do not want a pop-up as it may not be mobile friendly to do so.

    Is there a way to mask the index2.html page url itself when it loads? what are my options?

    Please help its urgent!

    I can do it another way to have both the forms in one, using conditional settings to show multiple fields but my dilemma is, I want him to submit so that I can get the notification before additional fields are displayed, and conditions do not allow me to use the submit button, they work on change of fields which do not work, as I cannot get a notification before user's submission.

    This way I can also control the form submission with Strict IP settings.

    So kindly propose the best solution!

    I am sorry to inform you, but it is not likely that we can mask the redirection URL or send the email alert for incomplete submission. I have not found any workarounds, but I will let you know if I see anything that might work.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

    I found a workaround but if you run a check on my forms, it seems to have problems.

    For general public the workaround is HTML 5 pushState method.

    var stateObj = { foo: "bar" };
    history.pushState(stateObj, "page 2", "index.html");

    It was working fine before. Since the links are confidential I will post it in a private question.

    Problems:

    1. Forms are responsive, but fields and options are too small even after using the responsive widget.

    2. Same thing with payment page.

    I will do a private post with link details.
