How to disable required option from Muti-Page Form?

    Asked on May 28, 2015 at 07:56 AM

    How can I make my form 2 pages? But, if the user doesn't complete page 2, I still want to be able to save/capture that data. Is that possible?

    In other words, this will be a 2-step form but if they don't complete page 2, I still want to be alerted that page 1 was completed.

    Right. I didn't want to waste time building it if I couldn't accomplish what I was looking to do.

    1) Is the only way to add a 2nd page by going to "SURVEY TOOLS > PAGE BREAK"? Or is there another way?


    2) When you say "disabling required option from page 2", do you mean that none of the fields on page 2 can be required? Or is there a setting somewhere that specifically allows the logic to happen?


    3) If someone completes page 1 only, will an e-mail get sent to me?

    4) If they DO complete page 2, will a second e-mail get sent to me?

    Hi Chris,

    Allow me to answer your questions here.

    1. Yes, you can create a multipage form by adding a Page Break to your form. We actually have a guide for that. Kindly check it here:

    2. You can make a field as required or not required. Now, if the fields in the first page are required, you cannot proceed to page 2 without completing them. You cannot submit the form if all required fields from each page are not filled. It will give you required field error.

    But if you want to give users the ability to submit the form without completing the page 2 or any page after page 1, then you can conditionally "unrequire" the fields. In this case, you should add a Check Box or Radio Button field in the first page that would serve as your gateway. 

    Here's test form:

    Selecting "Submit" in the Radio Button field will do the following:

    -Unrequire the fields in the page 2

    -Will hide the next button

    -Will show the submit button

    The submit button is added in  every page.


    This the structure of the form:

    And this is how the conditional logics are added:

    If you are confuse, let me know what part and I'll explain it more.


    3. If you will do the conditional logic above in Step 2, then yes. If not, you can't because you cannot submit the form since the other fields in the next pages are required.


    4. No, you will only receive a single email for every submission in the form. But not unless you will also conditionally do it that if the fields in the pages are filled, send an email. We have this method explained in this guide:


    I hope that clarifies everything. Let us know if you need further assistance.
