    Asked by hecgomrec on May 07, 2012 at 12:16 PM

    I need to start a form in a specific page based on a previous answer from another form.

    Is this possible? Even If I have to do the code manually.

    If i am not mistaken, you want to transfer the submitted data to another form. Is that correct? If yes, you might like to take a look at this similar post.

    If i misunderstood your question, please provide more details. So we can assist you further.

    Thanks for Your Reply ATACANC

     

    I went to the suggested link but is not my situation.

    A Little more of info:  I plan to use the form for my visitors to select a style based on a picture somewhere else on the site.  I need to create a link from the picture to go to the page in my form where I have the styles description on my form.  Let's say: the user is on picture 7 as they click on it they should start the form on page 7.  Having this will also allow me to have a button to go to the last page without clicking on "NEXT" as in my last page I request the visitor's info to reply them.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi,

     Let's say: the user is on picture 7 as they click on it they should start the form on page 7.  Having this will also allow me to have a button to go to the last page without clicking on "NEXT" as in my last page

    Unfortunately, this part will not do. There is no current means to skip the form's page break to go to another NEXT page. 

    But you can link your picture 7 to a single form. What I am saying is-- you cannot directly link picture 7 to a page 7 in a multiple-page form (example page 7)

    On the link provided by AtacanC, it shows how to "redirect" the form to another form or thank you page as soon as the form "loaded" - hence the OnLoad code upon submit.

    Here is how it is suppose to happen.

    1. User go to your website and click picture 7

    2. picture 7 is linked to form 1, when clicked browser open web page with form 1

    3. since form 1 have an OnLoad code, once it get loaded, it will automatically submit and open form 2

    Hope I was able to explain it properly. Please inform us if it is not still clear. =)

    Thanks.
