I have a form I am using for a client (Massage Therapy Clinic) that they use on an iPad for new patients to fill in their health history.
I have saved the form on the home screen of the ipad as a webpage, so the owners have an icon on the iPad that opens the form as a full screen page. They then allow the clients to fill in their info and submit it. Once they submit the info they are directed to a "Thank-you" message page. I would like to have a button on that page that directs back to the form so they can get the next patient to fill it out.
At the moment they have to close the "app" once the patient has submitted their form then reopen it so they are viewing the form page with a blank "new" form.

Thank you for contacting us.
Yes, this is possible. For example, you can use the following link which is styled as button on your form Thank You Page HTML Source.
<a style="text-decoration: none; border: solid 1px #0088cc; border-radius: 6px; moz-border-radius: 6px; box-shadow: 0px 0px 2px rgba(0,0,0,1.0); font-size: 18px; color: #696869; padding: 1px 17px; background: linear-gradient(top, #eeeeee 0%, #eeeeee 49%, #cccccc 72%, #eeeeee 100%); filter: progid;" target="_blank" href="http://form.jotformpro.com/form/42595487176974" >Re-open Form Link Button</a>
Where http://form.jotformpro.com/form/42595487176974 should be replaced with the link to your form. Also you can change the button text.

For additional information you can also style your button like this:
<a style="border: 2px solid #a1a1a1; padding: 10px 40px; background: #dddddd; width: 200px; border-radius: 25px;" target="_blank" href="http://form.jotform.me/form/42595693205461" rel="nofollow noopener" >Return to Home Page</a>"href" must be equal to your home page.
For your reference.http://form.jotform.me/form/42595693205461
If you need any further assistance on this, please let us know
thank you and have a great day.

Thanks for your help. I've tried the above solution and instead of directing the user back to the form, it opens the form address in a tab in Safari.

You just take this line out to avoid opening the form in another tab

I changed _blank to _self right off the bat (knowing I didn't want a new window) but the link still opens up the safari browser and opens the link in a new tab.

Try to configure your safari settings by choosing 'Never' to open link in a new tab. Maybe your browser is set to 'Always' or 'Automatically' and might be overriding the _blank or _self syntax.
Go to Preferences > Tabs
