    Form tabs widget - submit button is not working

    Asked by athdept on July 08, 2015 at 10:52 AM


    I have created a form to allow edits after the form has been submitted initially. This link is shared with multiple users to make changes to "their" section of the form. I have received reports that sometimes when they attempt to make changes and click "Update Form" it jumps to the last tab and just hangs there (with a Please wait message). This issue has occurred in multiple browser types. Can someone look into this please? Is there a limit (outside of time) that changes can be made to a form?

    I have tested your form and I was able to reproduce mentioned problem inside of Chrome. However I was able to submit your form in Mozilla Firefox.

    After testing I found out that Form Tabs widget is causing this problem. 


    I will escalate this issue to our developer and we will inform via this thread you once this issue is resolved. 

    Possible workaround is to changed Allow navigation without validation to No inside of Form Tabs widget. I have made this change inside of my cloned form and I was able to submit my form in Google Chrome as well. 

    Here is my cloned form: http://submit.jotformpro.com/submit/51884515245964/
