    Form Tabs: skip to page conditional logic

    Asked by browningreagle on May 17, 2016 at 05:31 PM

    Currently working on constructing a form with a couple of pages, and I'm using the Form Tabs widget.  I managed to get the Skip to Page conditional logic to work to some degree, but it's not quite at 100%.

    The conditional logic is that if a required field on page 1 is equal to "No", the Next button should skip to page 3 (of 3).  While it technically performs this action properly, the contents of page 3 are displayed while the tab for page 2 is highlighted as the current tab.  Furthermore, when you click the Back button at this point, it takes you to page 1 but the tab for page 2 remains highlighted.

    Is there any way to fix this?

    From what I understand on the issue you described, you were trying to create Conditions for the Form Tabs widget on your form https://form.jotform.com/61376703047152 . Correct me if I misunderstood.

    Please take note that Condition logic will not work for some widgets (Form Tabs is one of this).

    If you remove the Form Tabs widget on your form, the Condition logic which actually was being applied to the Page break field (the skip to page rule was refering to the page break field), the Condition will be working as intended.

    One way you can test the Condition is to clone your form and test the condition rules you need without the Form Tabs widget.

    Hope this help. Let us know how it goes.

    Regards,

    I'm not necessarily trying to apply Conditions to the Form Tabs widget itself, I just have the Form Tabs widget on my form so that it displays the tabs at the top of the form.

    My conditional logic is applied to the last question on page 1, which is a standard radio button.  The conditional logic itself works just fine, it just that when the form skips to page 3, the Form Tabs widget indicates that page 2 is the current page.

    If you try using my form, answer "No" for the last question on page 1 (Would you like to update...).  When you click Next, you'll be directed to page 3 which contains the Short Scrollable Terms widget, but instead of the Agree & Submit tab being highlighted, Additional Contacts is highlighted as the current tab.
