    Skipping backwards through pages by using Conditional Logic

    Asked by dmaoliver on November 05, 2016 at 06:15 PM

    I've created this form to help organize Thanksgiving dinner and I'm using conditional logic to skip pages based on answers to questions on pages 2-7. This works for all except page 7; which is set to go to page 2 if it receives a "yes" answer. Instead, the form is submitted and the Thank You page displays. I'm guessing I may not be able to use conditional logic to go backwards or I may need to use a Next button, but I can't figure out how to fix this. I would appreciate any assistance.

    You can indeed skip backwards with the "Skip to page" conditions.

    The reason you are not able to skip back in your form's case is because page 7 is the last page of your form. You are clicking on the Submit button, which effectively submits your form.

    The "Skip to page" conditions only work as you click on the Next button to navigate to the next page of a form, which means these conditions cannot skip from the very last page of the form to somewhere else.

    Simply make sure that your question is not on the last page of the form, and you will be able to skip back to Page 2, or any other page of the form.

    Please let us know if you need further clarifications or assistance.
