    Form Tabs widget: checkboxes indicating which tabs are completed

    Asked by chaofeng on September 24, 2015 at 01:43 PM

    Dear Jotform,


    I'm wondering if there's a way to add a checkbox next to each item on the tab list, to indicate whether an user has completed all the fields on that page. Say, if an user has finished filling out all the fields on one page, the checkbox next to the tab of that page will be checked.

    Here's the link to an image showing the ideal look of the form:


    And here's a copy of the form that I'm working on:


    Let me know if there's anything unclear about my question, and thanks so much for helping!

    To clarify, you would like to have the Form Tabs widget indicate which tabs/pages are already filled, and display this with an alternative styling on those tabs (such as different color, a checkbox, or something similar).

    I'm afraid that this isn't something that can be done with the current revision of the Form Tabs widget, but we can forward your request to our developers for possible inclusion in the future. Before doing so, I would just like to confirm if I have correctly understood your request, and what I described above is indeed what you are asking for.

    I would also like to let you know that we have a Progress Bar widget, which will show to your users how many fields have they filled, and how many are still remaining.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Boris,

    Thanks a lot for attending to my question, and yes, your description is correct.

    I feel this feature can be really useful and a nice addition to the current progress bar widget, as the users can see their progress as individual milestones instead of just a linear bar. 

    Thanks a lot again, and I look forward to trying out a new form tabs widget with the requested feature implemented.
