    How to preview Form?

    Asked by Ahurley24 on May 22, 2015 at 09:30 AM

    Is it possible to enter preview mode without having to start at the beginning every time? Can I identify were in the jotform I would like to begin?

    To my understanding, you would like to know if there is a way for you to set the page where you would like to begin the Preview mode of your form. I understand that, sometimes, you just would like to skip the first parts of your form because you are testing the mid part of it or the last part of it.

    If this is just for Preview purposes when you test your form, you can try to simply add this on the URL to jump to a specific page of your form. 

    ?jumpToPage=Page number goes here

    Let us know if this helps. Or if not, could you help us by giving more examples to where you would like to use this function. Thank you.

    Sorry,

    I wasn't exactly clear.  I have built in some conditions and in an effort to check the conditions in a preview mode I don't want to have to start at the beginning and complete all the required fields just to see if my condition was properly set.  If it can be avoided I would like to begin the preview at a predetermined location.

    Unfortunately, there is not a test mode similar to what you described.  Testing your form does require filling out the appropriate fields to continue to the next section.

    You can, however, require or unrequire multiple fields at one time, then set them back when you are done testing:

    I, as well as my colleagues, also use browser Addons such as JunkFill to fill in required fields for us.

    Since we have to do quite a bit of testing similar to what you are trying to do, this is very necessary for progressing through large forms.  One click and all fields are filled.

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