    Hi, I am wondering if I can place several forms within a website that ask questions of the user and then gives them a toal number right/wrong on a specific or end page?

    I would like to confirm Diane if you are looking to create a questionnaire form (jotform) that would show the correct answers / or the points they won on the thank you page - after they submit the jotform.

    If so then yes, you can achieve that on your jotform, but do let us know if that is not what you are after.

    In both cases we will be happy to help you start and set it up to your liking Diane :)

    Hi, thanks for getting back to me so quickly. What I am trying to do is aggregate responses from 5 different surveys that will throughout a website so that they show up on a specific thank you page.

    So if they take survey # 1 I don't want them to see the results until they have completed all of the surveys on the website. I would have a specific page on the website just for the results.

    Is that possible?

    OK, I believe that I understand what you want to accomplish and I hope that you will not mind me confirming this with you.

    There will be several jotforms all on their own, but once the last one is completed they are to be redirected to the thank you page with their result.

    Now if that is so, it could be possible to some extent, depending on how this is implemented.

    Now one jotform can not get the data from another jotform, unless we send it the data - we call this URL pre-populating.

    If you wanted to have one jotform send them to the second, which sends them to third and so on then this data would be possible to easily submit from one to the other.

    Prepopulating fields to your JotForm via URL parameters

    Redirecting Users to a Different Page

    Now if the jotforms are all on different pages on your website and they are not being connected directly in either way, you would need to pass them some value to indicate that they were already submitted or that there is some form that was not.

    Now to show the results on a final page, the final page would need to get the points made up to that point and then calculate its own points and make a redirection, which can be done, through a use of few conditions.

    Now the only thing that can not be done through our Form Builder and as such could be a bit complex is how the data is passed from one jotform to the second one.

    Can you please tell us what will be the users intended path through your website? - To ask differently, what should happen after they submit first jotform, second, etc up to the last one - should they continue using your website, or be redirected to the other jotform, or some specific page?

    Hi Thanks, This helps clarify my thought process. After the user sees a video they will answer some questions. I need to have their responses - how many right/wrong based on the video tabulate on that final page. After your explanation my thought is it might be better after each video to have each survey when completed tabulate onto the "Thank you" page at the end of the website not after the individual survey. The user will have to continue through the website to view each video. So after they answer the questions they will proceed to the next video - watch - answer questions etc until they complete each of the viewings.

    Thanks for your reply.

    That sounds like doable excluding the prepopulation of form data to the last form. It's just pretty complex getting this involve unless you are passing data up to two forms.

    So the process would be each form displays the result on the thank you page. Once the first form is done, the next one follows. So in order for them to proceed to the second form, my idea would be to leave a link of the second form on your first form's thank you page so user can click on it and continue filling the second form.

    Here's an example form (submit the form so you can see the result + the link of the second form)

    Feel free to clone this form so you can review and check its conditions as well as the thank you setup.

    If you need further assistance, do let us know.

    Actually the user doesn't need to see their results until they finished all of the videos. I wanted to set up the "thank you" page like:

    Video 1  - Correct - 3  Incorrect 2

    Video 2 - Correct 5      Incorrect 0


    Is this possible?

    I actually have 2 ideas to recommend at this point that I believe would work for you Diane.

    1st option

    You can create an number of jotform that you need and have each of them hold a video. I have based this on the chance that the video is being hosted on YouTube so our YouTube widget can be used, but even if not, there are many other video player widgets available on our system.

    Now each jotform holds one video and shows the answers either right under it, or on a next page so that they can not see the questions until they click to have seen the video.

    Now the idea here would be that you redirect them to some other jotform with another video based on their answers which is possible with a bit of conditions and then passing the value to each consecutive form (if so is needed) - for example the value of their current score.

    1. Easy to update manage since each jotform would be its own segment, allowing you to quickly manipulate the jotform representing some segment if so needed.
    2. if there are 7 jotforms that the person goes through to get to finish, it means 7 submissions per person

    1. If score is passed over URL, the score can be manipulated easily by changing the URL.

    2nd option - "one jotform to rule them all"

    I would actually recommend this one for many of reasons.

    The way this could be set up is by using multiple pages with back and next buttons. With few simple conditions you can redirect them to different pages so even if you had 20 of them, they might only see 2-3, depending on how you decide to create this.

    1. you can track how long it took them to complete all of the steps
    2. you are using single submission for single person
    3. score is passed internally and as such can not be altered by changing URL
    4. one single point of all modifications
    5. one place to go to see all data related to one person

    1. if you need to make some quick change it might be harder to find in a bigger form
    2. the jotform might be harder to set up in the start.

    Now we can help you with a demo of sorts if needed as well, just wanted to give you a general picture of how it might be used first, since once we are on the same page it is easy to set it all up in motion with the JotForm Builder :)

    Hi, Thanks. I like Option 2. That seems to be closest to what I am trying to achieve. Also, the results are going to be sent to one person. He will need to know who the person was - name, email, company name and how they did on each video. I am building the website in Adobe Muse. Are there any issues with getting this JotForm to work on that platform?

    This would be a quick demo of it:

    The first video has the question the second one does not, it is just there to show you that there are 2 pages.

    I have used Vimeo widget in the demo, but it will work just the same for any other.

    This will allow you to know the name, email and any other details that are retrieved on the jotform itself and you can use them in emails and in thank you message.

    No, there are no issues, we even have guides to help you set it up to run there and we are here to assist in case anything seems off.

    Now you would need the following guides to set it up like I did:

    How to Create Multi Page Forms

    How to Add a Widget to your Form

    Smart Forms Using Conditional Logic

    Do however let us know if you have any questions along the way and we will be happy to answer them. :)

    I just found the Quiz app which turns a survey into a quiz. Is there any docs on how to set up the correct answers and where the quiz data is saved to? Would like to group all of the results for each user on the final Thank you page and then have that emailed to the manager of the site.

    Hi Diane, while it is similar to what we have discussed, to avoid any confusion I have moved your question about Quiz Form app to a new thread that you can find here:

    We will be replying back to it shortly.
