    Multiple submit buttons on a form doing two different things

    Asked by TheIIC on September 03, 2016 at 01:35 PM

    I want one submit button to direct to paypal and another to simply submit the form data to my email. I was somehow able to accomplish this with one form, (https://jotform.com//?formID=52246564880158) yet I can't with any of my other forms, despite all attempts. Please help, this should be doable. I am putting a different submit button on different pages within my form. It worked once, but I can't seem to replicate what I previously did. HELP! Here is an example of the form I am trying to make it work on: https://jotform.com//?formID=52236270821146

    I figured it out. I have one submit button that captures customer data and sends it to me while they mail a check and another submit button below it that integrates with paypal for online payment. Do not use the default selection and force the customer to check the box for the item. If you do that, the first button will send data and go to the thank you message, while the second button will, after the customer selects the product, go directly to paypal.

    Glad to hear that. You can also use conditions so that once the user click the next button, it will jump to a certain page. Here's a guide: How-to-Skip-Pages-Using-Conditional-Logic.
