Skip to last section that does not have a checkbox checked.Asked by garyyello on October 13, 2016 at 10:03 AM
I have a Form it has arround 20 pages.
At the end of each page there is a checkbox question - "have you completed this section"
The form uses the save and return features.
I would like, when a used returns to the form for it to open up, at the first page that does not have the checkbox "have you complted this section" checked.
Thanks for any help,
Unfortunately, this is currently not possible. There is no current option that will help you automatically skip to the last page/section or skip to the page where "Have you completed this section" field is unchecked on your form when the user loads or returns to the form. A workaround for this is to use conditional logic. However, your user return to the form they will be first shown to the first page of the form and when they click next, they will skip to the page where they haven't checked the "Have you completed this section" field.
You can check this sample form with saved data: https://form.jotform.com/62864815894977?session=test. When you access the form it will automatically skip to Page 4. However, the downside of this method is that when you click the Back button of the page, it will go back to the First page and will not show the other pages it skipped.
To have a closer look on the setup of my sample form, just clone my sample form. To clone a form, just follow the instructions provided in this article: How to Clone an Existing Form from a URL.
Do let us know if you need further assistance.
Your suggestion is exactly what I need, however im having trouble making it work.
I want it to be used on this form: https://form.jotform.com/52293475752967?session=test I have added the conditional login, I think its setup correctly.
When I press the next page button, it does not skip to the last completed page as your demo does.
Would you be able to take a look and tell me if im missing anything?
I checked both your form and my colleague's test form. The problem with yours is that you have not added the "not equal to" conditions to your form:
I know it's pretty tricky to do them all for 27 pages but in order to make this work you should also have these conditions. Otherwise, the logic on your form can not determine where you are left off. Meaning, it is not able to see where the uncompleted part is.
Please try this and check if the issue still persists. Thank you for contacting us.
yes its taking ages, I stop while adding the conditions and test, nothing is happening yet.
Something that puzzles me is that is that if I pass in &page=10 via the url i.e.
the form does not skip to page 10 as you would expect from the skip to pages conditions.
What do you think about that?
After spending a few hours on this is think I have realised that the Nav tabs remove the value of Page from the 'Page input box' when they get loaded into the form
Please see the attached images.
What is the solution? do we just call 'Page' something else ?
I have managed to get it working, the issue is page and the nav tabs.
Using a different input to page allows me to skip to a page.
I have not check your form but it's great to know that you've figured it out. If you need help, let us know by creating a new thread.
