    How can I have just a button shown at the start of the form that, when clicked, shows the rest of the form?

    Asked by Rooster47 on December 08, 2014 at 04:16 PM

    I want to hide all of the form until a button "Start form" is clicked. Then I'll use the conditional logic to move through the form. I don't see any other buttons other than "Submit" though. Is there a way to accomplish this?


    Here's my form: http://form.jotform.us/form/43406269875162?

    I want to start the form when someone clicks on the button that says "Sure let's do it!"

    Yes, that can be accomplished by inserting a page break at the very top of the jotform and renaming the "Next" button "Start Form",

    as I've done in this clone of your form. Feel free to clone it back to your account and examine it.

    If you need additional help with this, just let us know.

    Thanks, that sort of works for what I'm trying to do.

    I guess to be more clear my question should have been how do I have a button in the middle of my form that reveals more of the form when clicked. Is this possible? I'd like to have headers and such above and below it, but when the button is clicked, it would expand to more of the form using conditions or other means.



    Edit - I'm trying a different technique using a single image radio button

    Good to hear that my colleague's solution is something that could work as an alternative. If you have something different in mind and would like some help, please do get back to us. Also, a screenshot of how it should look like will help us to understand easily your concern.

    Thank you.
