    How to Auto Submit a Form

    Asked by elgabriello on February 23, 2016 at 10:20 AM

    Hi, I'd like to auto submit a form without having any question answered, just a thank you message and gathering id information on my side. 

    I tried using a countdown widget but a. doesn't auto fill and b. can not be hidden. 


    Could you please help ?

    You can auto submit the form with a Global Countdown widget. Please note that auto submission will not work without a Submit button. I means that you will need to add both the Global Countdown widget and the Submit button.

    Then, it is possible to add a CSS code in order to hide the widget iFrame and submit button.

    iframe, .form-submit-button {
    display: none;

    Please see the next animation.

    If you need any further assistance on this, please let us know. We will be happy to help.
