    Radio button selection automatically goes to next page

    Asked by asapcarparts on March 23, 2015 at 04:30 PM

    I am setting up a User Feedback form with one question on each page. After they select there answer via the radio buttons, i want it to go to the next page automatically so the user does not have to hit next. Is this possible?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Unfortunately there is not currently an option to automatically skip pages within the form.  Pressing the next button is required for the page skip functionality to trigger.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.

    is there any other options (conditional logic, widgets, etc) that could accomplish something like this?

    Maybe hide all other questions, and once the first question is answered, show the second answer and so on.

    We have the option to hide/show fields based on rules added in the conditions wizard. But, I'm not sure at the moment if we can achieve your requirement by using conditions. Let me run few tests and get back to you with relevant information. 

    Thank you for your patience.

    While my colleague investigates the feasibility of using our conditions tool for this, have a look at this demo I did some time ago for another JotForm client who wanted the same functionality. If you view the page's source you'll see a script near the bottom. That script hides all the "Next" buttons (except the first) and clicks each of them 0.7 seconds after a button in the radio group on the relevant page is selected.

    However, one disadvantage with this method is that since custom scripts can't be used in the form builder, it's necessary to place a copy of the form's full source in a website of your own. This means that whenever you edit the form in the form builder you'll have to copy the updated code and overwrite the one in your website. Therefore, it would be better to use a form builder solution.

    Thanks

    Hi again,

    Just in case we're unable to devise a suitable form builder solution, this code would work for your jotform (assuming it's the form I think it is).

    Thanks

    @asapcarparts

    I was checking with your requirement using native conditions wizard but I couldn't achieve the same. As per my tests, the options can be hidden only until the previous option was checked. Using page breaks, it is required to click on next to move to the next page. Setting up conditions didn't work here.

    I think the solution provided by my colleague is the right one and I believe this is the one you are exactly looking for. Since he has already worked on the feasibility of the same requirement running the same tests some time ago, the solution provided can be the right option for you as well.

    Let us know if you need any further assistance in this regard. Thanks.
