Setting Up the Thank You Page

Last Update: June 4, 2016

What is a Thank You Page?

A "thank you page" is the final page your visitors see after submitting your form. Some people use it to give a pleasing end to the experience by customizing the page. Others use it as a tool to redirect visitors to a certain page after completing the form. 




There are two different options for you to choose when making your thank you page:

1. Show a Thank You page

2. Redirect to an external link


To access these thank you page options, see below:

1. Take a look at the toolbar at the top of the Form Builder once you enter the jotform to edit it.
2. Click the "Thank You" button with a huge smile:


3. Choose an option according to your needs:




Redirect to an external link also called as "Custom Thank You URL"

The form will redirect to the website URL entered here. This is very useful when you want your form users to land on your website or a specific page.

Example: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/30050430852946




Custom URL is also used on "Post Data Advanced Feature". Check this guide for more details: How to Post Submission Data to Thank You Page.



Show a Thank You page or the default thank you page

This is the most commonly used Thank You option since it has almost all the details that you need already included. You can completely customize the look of your thank you page directly from the thank you message editor. You can insert images, links, paragraphs, and tables. It is also possible to post users answer using this option by clicking the "Form Fields" drop down selection.



Example: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/30050980236952.


If you have any suggestions or experienced any issues regarding this feature, please let us know below.

hi, i love your form!
only one question: after the thank you page has appeared, how will the user get back to the blank contact form to submit another message? i would like the user to automatically get back to the blank form after the thank you page has appeared (or else, if that is not possible, that the form simply turns blank again).
thanks for any help!

First of all, thanks for having this up for free, you guys are awesome.

Is there any chance the thank you message could appear as a pop up window?

thanks

Just wondering, I have my contact form as a lightbox. The form is long and needs scrolling. When the thank you message comes up, the lightbox is as long as the contact form, and so I don't see the message, unless I scroll up. Is there any way to fix this.
Thanks

Hi, I've got an issue regarding the Thank You message. I'm using a black background and it seems like whenever i change the textcolor of "{myProducts}" its still black. It also lists it self as "" items, which makes it look really bad. Is there any way i can get around this?

Hi
I've sent up a Thank You Page via the "Thank You Message" option (last option). I entered my personal Thank you data. However when any user submit our form they do not get a thank you letter at all. Nothing appears. For those that click submit and completing payment and for those who click submit without completing payment (although those are saved in the inbox). Please advise. Thanks

After submission of form, I have directed the user to a desired url. But now the user can hit back button in the browser to reach back to the form. How can I avoid this??

In my form , I've marked few questions as 'required'. But whenever the user skips any required field then the message pops up saying "this field is required". This leads to misalignment of all the fields below it. How can get rid of this?

My form works great -- after pressing the submit button, a thank you message appears, but the user must scroll all the way to the top of the page to see it. Is there code I can add to take the user automatically to the top of the page so they can instantly see the thank you message? Thanks for your help!

I love the thank you page and it works fine, but... My web page is just a very long scroll page. The contact form is towards the end of the web page. Although I just want to use the 'normal' Thank You functionality, it does a refresh of the page, which brings me back to the top of the page. To see the actual Thank You, users would need to scroll back down to see it. Is there a way to '#jump' to the Thank You message? See http://www.eszar.com/#contactjump

My form is set up to Save and Continue Later. If the user Saves the form, they get the Thank You Notice that thanks them for their submission but they haven't submitted anything yet. Is there a way to set up several Thank You Notices or to turn off the Thank You notice until the form is actually submitted? Thank you.

Can I make a link on the Thank You page that DOESN'T include the http://www.jotform.com/ URL?

I need to add a link so people can save their form data presented as a PDF for signatures and mailing.

Every time I make a link, it adds the jotform URL to the beginning of the href

Thanks

Hi, I have opted to "redirect to an external link". However, when I submit the form on my site, the only thing that happens is that the form disappears from the page.

I even tried redirecting to www.google.com and I get the same results.

My Form ID: https://www.jotform.com//?formID=62378548723870

My Website: http://sksbattick.wixsite.com/humbird/copy-of-corporate-identity-quote

Thanks.

rather than a simple "thank you" I bring back a large amount of information to print labels for delivered products. the problem is: I cannot scroll through this to do reviews and edits. the popup window is too small and cannot be enlarged. what to do? the email window works OK just not the thankyou edit window
