    How can I make sure people accept terms and conditions before submitting form?

    Asked by convenus on November 05, 2010 at 12:10 PM

    I have set up a text box as a compulsory field but the check box cannot be made compulsory - can it? Any advice as to how I can do this would be much apprreciated.

    Add a checkbox that says "I accept the terms", and then make it required.

    is there any way we can insert an anchor tag into the field where we would put "I accept the terms". Maybe something like, I accept the <a target="_blank" href="terms.php">terms of use</a>.

    I tried deleting the question, but it sometimes shows up as "..." on the form when I load it. So I decided to put "-" and since I have the required option on, it shows up as "- *" on top of the "I agree..." It doesn't look nice. Is there anything I can do to just have the check box and "I agree... etc" ? Thanks.

    discoverspanish: you can do that by getting the source code and inserting and modifying it on your web page. I don't think it's possible to insert a link within the options of Jotform.

    kimmiandmikki: I believe you got your answer from your other post :)

    llyam: Thanks! This is my first JotForm. I had no idea you could get the source code like that. That's awesome!

    You can access your full source code by following these steps:

    1. Open your form
    2. Click on "Embed Form" on top menu
    3. Click on "Source" icon.
    4. Click on the link at the end of sentence "You can also download a compressed and refined version with seperate .css and .js files from here."
