    Hi,

     

    Anyone know of a way to create a multi-page form with a link to each page on the left side (for example) and the pages' form content on the right?

     

    My client wants a form with multilple pages but it does not need to be sequential so back and next buttons don't make sense here.

     

    Thanks

     

    Peter

    Hello Peter,

    It is possible to achieve something similar using Page Break elements, and Skip to a page or end of the form conditions. In the following example I have renamed Next buttons to Go, and it is also possible to hide the Back buttons (here is tutorial https://www.jotform.com/help/119-Page-Breaks-How-to-Use-Them-Like-a-Pro)

    Example:

    http://form.jotform.com/form/20193551888

    You can Clone my example form to check how it is made.

    Please give it a try and let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Unfortunately this work around won't suite my circumstances. I'm building a multi-page order form with a progress bar which is in a free html text field. I'd like to be able to put links into the words of the progress bar that take me to the correct page. I can put anchors on each page at the beginning of the progress bars. The link works put the form doesn't know to reposition the pages to the correct page....is this possible?

    Unfortunately we don't have an exact feature to meet that need yet but if someone were to request it as a feature and we got enough votes to demand it I'm certain our developers would eventually add one in.

    I tried to look at the form you had but it appears to have been deleted and the remaining forms on your account didn't seem to be created for this so I think perhaps you work working on a new form and then deleted it.

    May I ask what the reposition problem was? Did you mean that it wouldn't take you to the correct spot on the form using the anchors or what exactly did you mean?

    Additionally one of my colleagues has provided a possible workaround for a progress bar in this thread http://www.jotform.com/answers/166014-progress-bar.

    I've put the code back into the Blank PO. Page forward to the second page and then the link at the top I'd like to be able to take you back to the first...
