    Is it possible to have the thank-you [when a user clicks submit on a form] open in a new window?

    Asked by designsby on April 30, 2016 at 07:57 PM

    I've read through an old 3-year olf thread on the different suggestions. I was wondering if there had been any advances in that functionality since then.

    I don't mind using the jot form default thank you, but if need be, can make a custom one.

    This is not possible to do in our thank you wizard, but it is possible to do with Javascript and you will need to redirect your users to your custom link as normal, in the same window, and then paste this Javascript function that will help you to open the link in a new tab: 

    window.open('URLHERE', '_blank');

    On this link you will find more information about this: http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/met_win_open.asp

    I'm not sure how you would like to use this functionality, but doing this you will be able to redirect your users to a custom link in a new tab. 

    This guide will help you to set up and change the thank you link and redirect yo the webpage where you have the code given above: http://www.jotform.com/help/211-Setting-Up-the-Thank-You-Page

    Hope this helps.
