    Is this possible to show/hide form pages with conditions?

    Asked by StartupRobot on May 30, 2016 at 03:54 PM

    Jotform Footer persists even when page break is hidden

    I have a multi-page form with conditional logic. I'm trying to hide a particular page based on selections that were made earlier, so I use the Hide Multiple option and select all the fields on the page, including the page break. When I preview the form, however, the page is hidden, but the JotForm footer is not. There is nothing displayed but the footer, with no way to go forward or go back.

    I do not think the JotForm footer can be hidden using conditions, because it is not part of the form fields.

    Right, I don't expect to have to be able to hide it manually, like how I can select and hide a page break. The footer is supposed to appear at the end of every page, right? So why is it appearing when there is, in effect, no page? It's very buggy; it effectively makes the form unusable.

    For my particular form, the Skip to Page logic isn't appropriate, I need more of a "skip over this particular page when you get to that point" logic. How can I achieve this?

    P.S: Thanks for the prompt response; it's pleasantly impressive how supportive the JotForm team is.

    Unfortunately, we do not have an option to show/hide form pages based on user selections.

    You may consider showing/hiding sections of fields with the form collapse tools.

    Show or Hide multiple fields at once using form collapse tool

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    Unfortunately I require a multi-page layout, and the collapse tools don't work well with page breaks. I figured out a clumsy work-around using hidden fields on the page preceding the page to be skipped instead.

    Thanks though!
