    Preview Widget: When opening form I am not able to see and PREVIEW button, only SUBMIT button

    Asked by suesol on August 03, 2016 at 04:08 PM

    Part of my survey will work like this: I will display 36 images one at a time. The user's job is to choose the 3 relevant images (based on criteria I will provide in directions.)

    The user will need to decide if the image is a "yes" a "no" or a "maybe."

    Is there a way with Jotform to let the user how many "yesses" they have chosen before submitting? IF a user chooses too many yesses, they will have to continue to pare down to get to 3. IF a user didn't choose enough yesses, they will need to look at their "no" and "maybe" choices to add to their "yesses." 

    Another option would just be to hit a yes or no - and forget the maybe. But the user will still need to be able to determine how many YES choices they've made before submitting and continuing on to next section.

    ALSO -- ANOTHER QUESTION

    One part of our survey will require some thought on the part of the user. Can a user create an account, so they can come back and edit their responses later?

    There is a widget that might fit your requirements. It's called Preview Before Submit https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/preview_before_submit As the name implies, this allows your users/visitors to review all the selections they did on the form BEFORE submitting the form.

    Here's a working demo https://form.jotform.com/61474798548979 so you can see how it works from the visitor's perspective.

    You may add it from the MORE FIELDS section of your Form Builder:

    Since the other question falls on a different topic, I have moved it on a new thread here https://www.jotform.com/answers/897740 - We'll have it addressed there shortly :)

    Hope that helped!

    Super helpful... Except it doesn't show up. 

    In the build mode, I see that the widget was added. (attached image)

    But in preview mode, I do not see it.

    Unfortunately, we are not able to see your screen shot. I did test the PREVIEW WIDGET and see that it is not working. Even though the widget is added, when I open the form I only see the SUBMIT button.

    I will report this to our back end team so they can review it and fix it as soon as possible.
