Hi. I would like to have cursor automatically jump to next field when data is entered. Most importantly, when the date or birth fields are entered on my form. Any help greatly appreciated.Page URL:

Unfortunately, I believe it is not possible. The problem is when will the jump happen? If the user is typing in their input text, stopped for a couple of seconds for some reason and suddenly the cursor jumps to the next field, it gives your user more inconvenience because he needs to go back to the previous field.
Users can easily jump to the next field using the "tab" button of their keyboard. If you wish to still pursue on a jumping function, that is possible if you'll create your own custom script and insert it to the form's full source code.
I hope that helps.

Yeah I thought about that issue. Good point. I think it's more of a mobile/ipad touch thing as I can move through fields in a snap on desktop/laptop. We will just consider it resolved.

You are welcome. I also can't find a possible way for mobile devices, usually they'll need to use touch to move the active field input to another.
If you have any questions, concern or idea on this, please do let us know and we'll try our best to help you on it. Thank you.
