    Fork to a different form depending on answers to questions

    Asked by mathetos on April 25, 2012 at 01:22 PM

    I need to ask the visitor a few quick questions, then depending on their answers they will be directed to one of two forms. I want the information from the questions to be carried to each form regardless of where they go. Basically forking to one form or another depending on certain fields.

    Is this possible? This is the form I'm currently working with, I haven't created the second form yet: http://form.jotform.us/form/21088395525156

    As always, totally appreciate how quickly you all reply to posts and how detailed and informative the answers are.

    Yes, it possible. Using conditional method is the best way to achieved that. Here the guideline on how to make conditions of your form.


    Hope you find it helpful.

    Thank you for using JotForm!

    I'm very familiar with the conditional functions in Jotform, but I have not seen how I can accomplish what I'm talking about specifically. The form I linked to already uses conditional logic to skip to a new page within the same form, depending on how they answer the first questions. What I need in ADDITION to this, is that certain answers will send them to A NEW FORM, while carrying over the information. Is this possible?

    If you need to put up separate forms, you can use the condition for "Change Thank You URL after submission" option, then put the URL going to your other form.  This way, you'd be able to redirect your form users provided that the answers in the form meets the specific conditions.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance on this matter.

    Hello GunfightersINC,

    May we know the URL you have placed in the field?  Or you can provide us the form ID of your actual form so we can look into it.

    Thank you for providing the URL of your form. However, when I check the condition of your form it didn't link actually to the other form. There's no Submit button as well.

    Where do you want to link your form if they will select 92D Centurion? We can help you on that.

    Looking forward for your response so we can further assist you.

    Thank you!
