How to Skip Pages Using Conditional Logic

Last Update: March 24, 2016

In this guide, you will be able to use conditional logic to skip pages based on user's form field input.


First, you'll need to be familiar with the "Conditions", please check this link for that guide.

Now let's get started.

Here's a sample form that I made: https://form.jotform.com/53531357542959. It literally skip to pages depending on the drop down field selected. Below are the steps on how I have setup mine.

1. I will add a drop down field that will be used as the basis for the skipping of pages. But you can use other form fields like text boxes, radio buttons, etc... Depending on how your form works.



2. Make your form multi page by adding page breaks.


3. Click "Conditions"


4. Select "SKIP TO A PAGE


5. Now set the "IF" statement or the rules to when the skip page will occur. Select to what page will the user lands when he/she clicks the "Next" button. In my case, this is how my condition works:

IF drop down field "Skip to page" is Equal to "3" THEN Skip the user to page 3 after clicking the next button


6. Repeat the same steps for the other pages, depending on how you want it to work.

I hope that helps. For questions, feel free to leave us a comment below.

Can I use this feature for skipping a question and redirecting a respondent to other questions based on their response?

This is great, however, how to I get the next button not to move to the next page unless they click the conditional logic answers in the drop down or radio buttons about the back and next buttons. Can I turn off the next function unless the logic is selected?

Is possible set a condition for the back button too?

Is possible the back button jump to a page in the left side? Because the condition to the left button sometimes changes the jump page

I have created a drop down box that has multiple options (page 2, 3, 4 etc). I added a condition to skip to page 2 when page 2 is selected, and then added another condition to skip to page 3 when page 3 is selected on the drop down menu. But no matter which page I select it only goes to page 2. Is there another condition I need to add?

I'm struggling with conditional logic to get user to transition to different pages. I have tried to repurpose the 'submit' button to go to a different page. I have also added some radio buttons and conditional logic with both the text of the button and "value" of the options which I've just assumed is "1" and "2". Can you please tell me what the best way to do this is. Thanks

I've set up conditional logic for several questions in my form, and it works as expected in all cases except the last question. I would like to go to a previous page if the user submits a "yes" answer, but it submits the form and displays the thank you message instead. I suspect it may not be possible to go backwards using conditional logic. I would appreciate additional insight on this issue. Thanks.
