    How to reload the same form each time it is submitted, for another person to fill it out

    Asked by taniaball on August 24, 2016 at 01:17 PM

    I am collecting data on Destination information for school leavers.  As the pupils collect their results they will input their details into the jotform. I want this to repeat over and over again on the same computer without having to open up a new webpage - is there a way to do this.

    If I understand you correctly, each time your pupil will submit a form, you would like for the form to load up again - so that the following pupil can input their answers.

    Yes, this can be set up by using your form's URL as the Thank You page. The Thank You page is what is shown to your users after they submit a form, so if your Thank You page is set to be your form's URL itself, the form will automatically load itself upon each submission.

    The following guide explains how to set up a Thank You page:

    Once again, that's not good enough. 

    What if someone uses the same form in multiple locations?

    Can you enable a feature, where the form simply reloads in it's original state, in the same location? 

    I don't want a URL redirect. Just a simple form reload.

    @PodiumMC: I see that this was posted on multiple support threads, and one of my colleagues already moved one of these messages to a dedicated support thread of your own:

    You will be assisted with your request there, shortly. Thank you.

    Hello Support,

    I don't think you understand my request. I have an example here: https://goo.gl/0uWkW7

    In this example, I use two forms: the first is a Joomla plugin, which I use when embedding forms within my Joomla site.

    The second form is Jotform: I use Jotform to embed forms on client sites.



    If you test both forms, you will see they both act differently once the form is completed.

    The first simply reloads the form in place - very quickly and easily. This is EXTREMELY EASY for the end-user.

    The second form CANNOT reload the form in place. I must set a URL redirect, or the end-user must reload the page. This is NOT USER FRIENDLY.

     

    I have been a Jotform subscriber for 3 years (I believe) and this is something I have always wanted.

    I am willing to make a bet once you create such a feature, it would be a very popular feature. Can I ask that you look into this?

    I see that you have the same response on the other thread.

    https://www.jotform.com/answers/1038402

    And as mentioned by my colleague, Jan, there is already an opened feature request ticket opened in this thread: https://www.jotform.com/answers/952366

    To avoid confusion, may we ask you to refer to the latter if you have question or concern that is relevant to your initial concern.

    Thank you.
