    Form submits without Required Fields

    Asked by Alan@benchfilms.co.za on April 22, 2015 at 09:38 AM

    I first realized this problem when I hit Enter and the Form just submitted itself without being completed. Required fields were ignored.

    I then clicked the submit button leaving out the Required fields and again it submitted. 

    This is in your preview window (Which also does not ignore validation - all tests went through to Google Drive).

    This also happened with the email link.

    I'm using Chrome - and my Java is enabled.

    I do not wish it include any pass code or captcha type solutions - this form is intended for non computer savvy people so it should be as easy to complete as possible.

    I appreciate all your help on this matter - Despite this issue Jotform is the best form creator I've used.

    Please don't worry, this only happens on the Preview page of the Form Builder.

    If you open the form in new tab, or embed it on your page, it will not be able to submit unless all the required fields are filled.

    This would happen in a new tab, or when the form is embedded into a web page:

    Kind regards.

    I've checked your form and I saw that only 2 fields in it are set as required.

    And as you can see, I wasn't able to submit the form leaving them in blank.

    Are those fields the only ones you need to be set as required? Can you try to clear your browser's cache and load your form again?

    Let us know if the issue persists.
