    How can I set up a form to gather data to then be displayed after submission?

    Asked by SamSellery on December 24, 2014 at 01:02 PM
    I need some help. I want to set up a form that required a prospect to enter contact information and submit it to then have the ability to see proprietary information.
    Example: prospect enters their name and email address, then using conditions the submit button appears. Where I'm stuck, (or what I'm looking for is), upon the prospects submission, using conditions, additional proprietary data of mine appears, like investment rates of return, etc. (I'm in the financial field).
    Does that make since? Is there a way to present data on the same form once a submit button has been pushed?

    I'm not sure if I'm understanding your issue correctly or not but from what I read it seems to me that you wish to use conditional logic to show or hide and require certain information for the submit button to then appear properly at which point you wish to preset the data after it has been submitted.

    Do you mean something like this perhaps - http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43574917214963 

    Basically, In my example I made the two fields then marked them as required. I then set up conditional logic to only show the submit button if those fields are filled in. Next I set up the Thank You page to display the information after it's been submitted.

    Close but not quite, upon the submit button being pushed (ie collecting the prospect data), specific content such as widgets, images, text, etc that I have prearranged would appear by using consitions.  Is there an easy way to do that?  In condition I see there is no way to select a submit button and with a condition such as "when submitted" "show" xyz

    does that help?

    No, we do not have such conditions. We consider the form entry as submitted when the form Submit button is being used.

    However, the following conditions are being evaluated upon submission.

    - Send an e-mail after submission
    - Change Thank You URL after submission
    - Change Thank You message after submission

    It means, that you can redirect the user to another web page or form based on the user selection on form.

    Thank you.
