    Skip to page conditions do not seem to work on last page with back button

    Asked by resilico on July 22, 2015 at 08:33 AM

    Hello,

    I have two questions about the conditions of this form.  

     

    Question 1

    This form has 5 pages. At the bottom of each page there's a question: Where do you want to go after you click the Next button?  This works correctly for the first 4 pages, but the last page doesn't cooperate, although the conditions seem correct.

     

    Question 2

    This has to do with the the fields: How did you feel (and the next two fields) on pages 2, 3, 4 and 5.

    After I saw that page 2 was working correctly, I duplicated this page, with its conditions, to pages 3, 4 and 5.

    In three steps the user can define his emotion. Let's say that after the main page, you first go to page 2. You answer Yes to the question "Did you perform the planned activity?" and select some answer from the next three fields.

    Now you go to another page, let's say page 3. You will find there that the field "How did you feel? and the next two fields are shown, exactly as they are now in page 2, but without the values. You find the same situation on the next pages. These fields should initally be hidden.

    The same happens if you do not go from page 1 to page 2, but if you go from page 1 to one of the other pages.

    Pages 2, 3, 4 and 5 should work independently from each other.

    How can I prevent this situation from happening?

    Kind regards,

    Nathan Moked

    I took a look at your form Nathan and since these are 2 different issues, I have split your thread. The issue about the fields, will be answered here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/616542

    Now, in regards to your current issue, based on my tests it seems to be working properly.

    I have made a clone and added an aid to each page (at the top it tells us which page it is)

    http://form.jotformpro.com/form/52024229495960

    It works just as you want it to work (per conditions), but what I think that is happening is that you would like to use the Back button and be redirected to a specific page?

    Please note that only Next button makes the redirect, Back button gets you back to the original location.

    We are able to trick the system though by setting the text of Next button to be Back and hiding the actual back button through the options in the toolbar ;)

    Now if we also add the following CSS code:

    #cid_345 .form-pagebreak-back-container {
        display: none;
    }

    It now looks just like the real back button - but works like the next button - and only on that last page.

    This is OK if you are going to have Submit button on some of these pages, but if you need to access some other page, it would be difficult without adding it to the dropdown options as well (since our next is now used as back).

    Hope this helps or gives you an idea what your next steps would be, but in no matter what you decide, we are here so just let us know if you need any assistance Nathan :)

    Hi Ben,

    This works fine now. The Next button on the last page was hidden. Now it is shown, and it works the way it should. I also added the header at the top of the pages as you suggested - they make the form much clearer for the user.

    Thank you!
