Redirecting Users to a Different Page

Last Update: June 3, 2016

Do you want people to go to a different page when they've submitted your form?  Maybe, you want to redirect them to your homepage after the form is completed. Well, follow the steps below to send your users to any URL you want.


1. Click the "Thank You" button in toolbar



2. Click the "Redirect to a external link" button in the thank you page wizard

3. Enter the URL of the page and click the "Save Changes" button




4. Click the "X" button at the top and don't forget to save your form.


If you want to redirect the submitter to another URL based on their answer in the form, you can do it by setting up a "Change Thank You URL after submission" condition. Here's a guide on how you can do it: http://www.jotform.com/help/317-Configuring-Change-Thank-You-URL-after-submission-condition


How'd you do? Do you have any suggestions on improving the wizard or the experience itself? Please tell us in the comments section below.

I like the Thank you and the redirect back to my facebook page. I use a page Redirect url and it took me back to my facepage without a confirmation that the form was submitted.

Is there a way to have both?

georgetorressr : It is not possible to redirect to two URLs. You should probably create a Thank You page on your facebook and redirect to that page.

how can i make the thank you page open on a new window/pop up window?

You cannot make Thank You page open in a new window. We do not support it because leaving a filled form on a page causes usability problems for users. When their form stay there like it were never submitted they think they were not able to submit their form. Then they re-submit the form again.

If you really need it you can accomplish it by using full form source code on your site and adding a "target="_blank" parameter to your form tag.

The redirect doesn't work. I'm using xsitepro, I cut and paste the script into my code on my xsite page, but the script doesn't do anything.

How do I figure out the URL for the thank you page wizard? I've tried several versions and none of them has worked. Isn't there a way to browse to it to get the accurate address?

I have this set up to go to a URL, but it is taking me to a different much older uRL that doesnt exist anymore. Is there a URL anywhere else that is overwriting it?

Hello, I have a thank you page and it's hidden from the main navigation of my website I am trying to place the url in the custom thank you and I can't seem to get it to work. I'm using the following URL: http://www.garzmax.com/entrancethankyou.html and after every form submission I get an error:

404: Page not found
This error is generated when there was no web page with the name you specified at the web site.

I want them to buy my product first then get the download for my ebook as it is free so I see no possible way to have them buy first then get the free ebook. If there is a way let me know because when they hit submit I want them to go to paypal so I would probably need to set up a separate page on my website to download the book then I only have 1 product and your form will not work showing the product they need to buy. Any solutions?

Hi,
I have 9 forms now. How can I redirect respondents from form# 1 to form #2 and then form# 3 and so on (after submitting each form). Please note that I want to do it through sending email to respondents, not through custom URL. The function of email setup seems does not work either in this way, because I don't want to send all forms together. I want each form to be sent following submission of previous form.
Thanks a lot for you help,
Mehdi

Hello, Brand new to this form thing - just creating my first form. I have four pages in my form, and would like to have people sent to a given page from the main page, depending on which selection they make, without having to select 'NEXT'. Can they be directed to page 4 (for example) from the main page, when they make a that selection?

Expect answer is this is no but will ask anyway. If people use the form to take part in a comp - is there a way for them to be directed (by say clicking a button/link) to a different page/website to find the answer and be automatically directed back to answer the question?

I'm using the form to send the user the page title and URL for whichever page they are on. When the "your email has been sent" message appears is there a way to send them back to the page they were on?

ie. I can't enter a fixed URL because the URL will be different depending on which page they were on.
