    After a form is submitted, what is the fastest way for a new form to be generated?

    Asked by Daniel Joffe  on August 02, 2016 at 08:34 PM


    I plan to use the form submission to categorize inventory.  I expect to have between 250 to 400 form submissions per day.

    QUESTION #1 - After a form is submitted, what is the fastest way for a new form to be generated?  I ask because we will have workers input the inventory on a form, press "submit" and then will need to immediately enter info into a new form.  Is there a way, after the form is submitted, to immediately refresh into a new, blank form?  Or, are there additional steps our workers need to click to get to a blank form?


    QUESTION #2 - After a form is submitted, is there a way to print a completed form (because we would like to print the form and put on a box)?


    QUESTION #3 - In some cases, we will be using bar codes with our inventory.  As such, we would like to input the bar code into the form.  We will be giving our workers "bar code guns / devices" and will laser capture the bar code.  Currently we use a bar code device and it automatically fills our google sheets.  If we use your JotForm, will the JotForm receive the bar code similar to how google sheets receives the bar code? IE: if your JotForm capatable with bar code entries from a bar code device?


    Thank you

    Hi Daniel. To better assist you with each of your concerns, I have moved the 2nd and 3rd question to a new thread. Your first question shall be answered here. You can check out the other threads through the links below:


    After a form is submitted, what is the fastest way for a new form to be generated? 

    The fastest way to have a blank form ready after a submission is to redirect the Thank You page to the same form. Here's how:

    1. Get the URL of your form. Click the Publish button on the form builder then copy the link of the form.

    2. Now go to the Thank You page

    3. Select Redirect to External Link and then paste the link of the form.

    Once you save it, you're all set. The form will redirect to a blank form after every submission. Here's a demo so you can see it in action: https://form.jotform.com/62149461780964.
