    Hi Mihaela,

    Is it possible though to go to next applicant without showing "Every row is required", but only at the end of the form, when submitting it?

    You could do that by adding this CSS code to your jotform.

    div.form-error-message {
        display: none;
    li.form-line.form-line-error {
        background: none;

    I left the red border around the input box since that allows the users to see which fields are problem while still removing the error message as they pass through the jotform.

    You can see a demo of it here:

    Best Regards,

    Dear Ben,


    I inserted the CSS code as adviced; however, I can't go to the next applicant without filling all the matrix rows of the first applicant - the error message still appears.

    Hi Mihaela

    I checked your jotform

    I can see that the first question, the matrix row IS a *Required question. Meaning, it needs to be answered.



    This is how a required question/field is suppose to work.

    You need to answer the question so that you can proceed to the Next page

    Please tell us if there are still issue.
