How to embed the form with a start button?Asked by katephoto on July 27, 2016 at 01:12 PMActually, I do have another question.
I want to embed this form on my website. But I want the user to click on a button (with something like Let's Get Started on it,) then have the form appear.
My website provider, Zenfolio, is telling me that they cannot provide the button and maybe I would be better off doing it (getting the button and having it link to my form) through Jot Form.
Can this be done? If so, how?
If you want to have a button that is separate from the form itself, then it is most likely related to your website and not JotForm.
However, if you would just like to have a "Start" button that would act as page 1, then that is possible by simply adding a page break on your form. Here's a guide to learn more about multi-page forms: https://www.jotform.com/help/119-How-to-Create-Multi-Page-Forms
You can setup page 1 as the welcome page of the form and have the "Next" button act as the "Let's Get Started" button. Here's a sample form: https://form.jotform.com/62085653789975
You could also check our "Lightbox" embed code and the "Feedback" embed code, they have the feature that allows the form to pop-up when a link or button is clicked.
I hope that helps.
Thank you, Charlie. It looks like the multi-page form may be the easiest solution. . . although I haven’t tried it yet. I’ll give it a try and let you know if I have any further questions.
