    Is it possible on a multi-page form, to allow someone to progress past a page with required fields, and come back to them later?

    Asked by InheritInitiative on April 11, 2016 at 10:22 PM

    I have a 4 page form.  Many of the fields are required because I want all of the information.  Unfortunately, not everyone has the time to fill out all of the fields in one sitting.  I would like them to be able to move to the next page though, so they can keep filling out the fields that are fillable, and simply not submit the form until all of the required fields are filled.  Is that possible?

    Hello InheritInitiative,

    Please be noted that page break field will always trigger required field validation. It is not possible to move between pages without filling up required fields.

    One possible way to solve this issue is by adding "Form Tabs" widget in your form and set the widget attribute "Allow navigation without validation" to Yes. This will allow you to go to next page with filling up required field. Please check the screenshot below:


    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
