Auto advance from field to field

    I'm surprised by how rarely I see this topic addressed when discussing forms. I HATE using the TAB key for anything but particularly when the information being entered is in formatted fields with a defined number of characters; area code and exchange in telephone numbers, dates, date of birth, SSN, etc.

    My preference is to use the "enter" key for cursor advancement from one field to the next.

    Is there a way to get this functionality in Jotform without knowing html, css, php, etc. code ?

    Sorry, but the answer is no. Most, if not all, form builders and generators do not have this function.

    HTML forms, by default, and by common knowledge, uses the Enter key for submitting the form. There is no way you can change this without implementing custom-made JavaScript.
