    Page Break/Multipage Form: Add a time-based trigger for "Auto Next"

    Asked by sambit on October 21, 2016 at 04:55 AM

    When I add global countdown it has two aspects,

     

    1. It starts counting when the link is loaded, despite of its position in other page instead of 1st

    2. And adding global countdown to different pages has no impact because they become global timer for the form rather than the page

     

    SO HOW CAN I AUTO CHANGE PAGE AFTER A SPECIFIC TIME??

    There's actually a new feature in the form, the "Auto Next" option. 

    However, that only works if the last field in the form which is a check box or radio button field has been filled out.

     

     

    Unfortunately, the Count down widget cannot auto navigate the user to the next page, the "Auto Next" so far doesn't have that feature.

    The Global Countdown widget can only block or submit the form as its action, it is also applied to the whole form, not on the specific page only.

    I can forward a feature request for this, I believe the most suitable place to add this function is in the "Auto Next" option, as it seems like our developers are currently working on this. However, I cannot guarantee that this will be implemented, we will inform you on this thread as soon as we hear any news.

    For now, the only way to do this is to use your form's full source code and embed it on a web page, you will then need to create a Javascript function that will automatically trigger the next button once the timer runs out, that custom script will then be inserted directly in your form's source code. If this works for you, let us know and we'll help you on this.
