    I am trying to create a form that allows a company to first choose widh page of the form to fill out and then only submit that page when the submit button is selected.

    I have already created a form with the first page gives a choice of four different pages. When they are directed to that page (with some items already filled in based on the page they choose) they fill out that page only. But, when the form is submitted, all of the information is sent, nit just the page they worked on.

    I guess I am looking for a submit page button insted of a submit form button.

    It seams that instead of make different pages I should make different forms but I don't know how to use the "conditions" to open a different form.

    You could do something like in this basic example:

    Create your 4 seperate forms and gather their URLs from the Embed icon

     

    Create the four options on your 'parent' form, possibly changing the Submit button text to 'next' 

     

    Then set up Custom URL 'thankyou' pages conditions for each of the options:

     

    Creating a new condition for each of different form options and redirecting to relevant form URL.

     

    Does that make sense?

    I think so - I'll try it and let you know.

    OK - I did what you suggested and it worked. Thanks.

    However, there are a few things I'd like to clean up a bit if possible. First, to make the additional pages I cloned the first one. The name became "clone of A" and the second was "clone of clone of A". I could not see a way to change the name of a cloned page. Am I missing something?

    Second, when the forms are emailed, the first page (which is just the re-direct to the second form) also gets emailed as a form entry. Is there a way of sending that to "noplace?"

    Happy to hear you are getting very close to a happy solution.

    To answer your questions:

     

    1) Change the name of your form here (in the Form editor) 

     

    2) Just delete the Email notification from the first form:

     

     

    Hopefully the instructions on this images are clear enough. Let me know if they arent.
