    Single preview before submit button on multiple page form

    Asked by VivaOrders on August 05, 2016 at 01:19 PM

    Writing to follow up on this thread! Any progress on the ability to have a single preview button for a multiple page form?

    Using this method on a form with required fields on later pages tends to throw users for a loop, as they click the Preview button on any given page, then try to Submit within the preview and receive an error message that submission is not possible. 

    I've put up a message that they must review an order, exit the review window, then continue the order, but this is not entirely intuitive and we receive multiple error inquiries a day. 

    Here's an example:

    The preview before submit button replaces the submit button.  Anywhere there is a submit button in your form, there will be a preview button in the form.  Place the submit button on the last page of the form and remove and other submit buttons if you would only like a single preview button in the form.

    Thank you, David! I was under the impression putting a preview button only on the last page would not allow users to preview all previous pages as well (we're using an 18 page form). I'll add the Preview Before Submit widget asap!

    You are welcome. So please try to add "Preview Before Submit widget", and if you face any issue or need assistance, feel free to revert back.

    Hey Support!

    One more preview widget riddle, and please let me know if this should be an additional thread.

    We are using the Adobe DC esign widget, and the field is required. Because the signature is required, users would have to sign before previewing the order. That example is here:  https://form.jotform.com/62207112380140

    If we place the preview on an earlier page, say create a 'Preview' page before the signature widget, it takes users into a new window that gives them the apparent option to submit, but doing so causes a system error because the required signature page is not yet completed. That example is here: https://form.jotform.com/62206950745154

    Is the signature widget simply incompatible with the preview widget, or is there a standard solution you implement for required field / preview issues?

    Thank you!

    Hey Support, 

    Please disregard! The Adobe signature widget has its own type of order review before signing, which will be sufficient for us.
