    How to use a button to move to a new form located on a web page.

    Asked by 1940sSocialNetwork on March 17, 2012 at 06:29 PM

    I would like to have a button to be able to move to a different form on my website depending on a choice made in a drop down box. Ive looked all over but can't seem to find an option to do this. The way ive done this at present is by changing the text on a submit button and using conditions to move to a new thankyou url. This works fine but everytime a user selects the option form the dropdown box and clicks on the newly named submit button I will receive an email as it is in theory still a submit button. How can I stop an email being sent or create a button to re-direct to another form depending on choices made ?

    You can achieve this by adding a Free Text(HTML) tool in accordance to your Selection button.
    In the Free Text (HTML), simply put a Link to the new Form(URL) you want it get redirected.

    This can actually be done without any button at all. As a demonstration, copy this code and insert it into the source of your web page where you want the drop down box to appear. It should work like the one on this page.

    To make your own form, just edit the values and texts in the option tags to suit. Of course, additional option tags can be inserted into the menu.
