How to auto reload a form upon submission

    Asked on June 30, 2016 at 01:40 PM

    I want to use JotForm in a kiosk for feedback.

    I would like that after someone submits a form, it shows a thank you page for a few seconds, and then reloads the form so that another person can use it.

    Is this possible?

    This is possible reload the form upon submission by pointing form Thank You URL to the same form.

    Unfortunately, we cannot show a thank you message in this case, but this is possible to change the Submit button text to indicate that the form will be reloaded.

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

    I wish JotForm would come out with an option to have the form autoreload IN PLACE upon submission. 

    I DON'T want to have the URL redirect to go to the page the form was on. I want to be able to use a form on several different URLs, but have the form auto load upon completion.

    I don't want a "Thank you message" either. Just reload the form!

    JOTFORM - is this possible?

    Hello Jason,

    Unfortunately the feature you are requesting is currently not possible in Jotform. The only way to reload the form would be to redirect it to itself from the Thank You page. However, I understand that this is not suitable for your requirement. 

    I see that you have sent a feature request so that the feature to reload the form in place may be implemented in the future. You can check your request by following this link:

    Please note that we cannot assure you if or when this feature will be implemented, as is still depends on the popularity of the request among our users and the workload of the developers. Rest assured if we hear any news about your request, we will update you on the other thread.

    Thank you.

    Hello, I'm once again revisiting this. 

    Can I ask for a feature to be added? 

    I want a form to be RELOADED IN PLACE after a submission takes place.

    I have one form that I use in multiple places (it is a contact form), and I do not want it to redirect to a URL after submission. If I did that, I would have to make 25 instances of one form, and have them all redirect to the individual pages they are set on. Instead, I simply want the form to reload to it's original state.

    I have checked the status of your feature request ticket and I can see that the ticket is still open in our system. I am sorry to inform you, but we do not know when it can be implemented. Although, if we receive any updates from our developers on this matter your thread will be updated.
