    Hi there,

    I'm building a very simple newsletter form with only one field: e-mail and subscribe button.

    The problem here is that I don't wanna make the e-mail field an obligatory one, what I want is if the user leave it blank and click the subscribe button it will not submit to my response area in jotform and the form will just look like the same at the beginning. No messages of no submission, nothing at all. 

     

    Is it possible to implement?

     

     

    Thanks in advance,

    Maria.

    How about using a preview_before_submit widget? If you still want to make it look like the same form what you can do is rfollow our confirmation page trick guide here http://www.jotform.com/help/98-Confirmation-Page-Tricks.

    Test this jotform http://www.jotform.com/form/12455618563 and see if this is what you are trying to do.

    Hi  jedcadorna,

    it's not what I'm looking for but I'll stick with the mandatory e-mail field to avoid receiving empty forms.

     

    Thanks anyway,

    Maria.

    Unfortunately clicking the submit button sends POST data to Jotform while preview before submit temporarily holds the value of the form but it is not yet submitted so basically pressing submit will send a form to your inbox.
