    Greetings!

    You can create a condition on the form 1  .

    From the edit view of your form, choose conditions from the toolbar and select "skip to a page or end of the form

    Hope this works for you!

    You can actually do that with just one form. This can be done using "Condition".

    Refer to this guide: http://jotform.com/help/57-Conditional-Logic-on-Forms

    If (for some reason) you specifically want separate forms, it's possible to use the form builder's Conditions Wizard to setup a system where the first form (the one with the drop down menu) links to as many other forms as there are selections in the menu. Moreover, fields in the "second tier" forms can be pre-populated with entries made in the first form. I believe it's also possible to have the user auto-directed to the form they choose in the drop down menu without any need of a submit button.

    Here's the general idea: The first form contains basic fields which would be common to all of the second tier forms: Name, E-mail, Postal Address, Phone Number(s) and so on. All of these fields would have been set to "Required" by you and you would also have setup a condition to reveal the drop down selector (containing the names of the other forms) only when all of the fields have been completed. The user will then select the second tier form of their choice and be automatically directed to it. Once the second form loads, it will have its Name, E-mail, Postal Address, Phone Number(s) fields already filled so that the user won't have the hassle of completing those details again.

    This can can even be taken a step further where if the second tier forms are long ones with several fields, the user can save their entries and return at a later date to complete the form.

    I'll see if I can setup a working example of such a system later. (I've never tested such a solution in its entirety but from what I know about the form builder, it should be doable.)

    So any update on this yet? I need to know how to exactly do what you just described abajan. How do I go about setting up one form to actually send someone to another form based on whatever selection they make on the first one? Is there a premade option for it or does it require custom work?

     

    Thanks

    I can see that part of what you are looking for is to provide a form where people is able to Save and Continue later. 

    You can setup one form and apply conditional logics to redirect to another form based on a selection. This can be accomplished by choosing Change Thank You URL after Submission , which would be the URL of the second form.

    However, it might be possible you are looking for something more specific.

     

    -At any rate, on regards to applying the Save and continue later feature, let me tell you that we have added an AutoFill Feature which will allows to save entered data without having to apply the Save and Continue later workaround . This is specially great for long surveys 

    It will make the form to autofill with the last updated info, if  users  accidentally close the windows or refresh the screen while filling the form out, the info will be still there!! Once you submit the form, it will autoclear.
