How to Conditionally Disable the Submit Button in Jotform Cards

March 12, 2024

Disable Submit is a Jotform Cards feature that allows you to disable the submit button based on specific conditions. This enables you to apply restrictions and prevent users from submitting your form conditionally. For example, if a required field is empty or certain criteria are not met (e.g., age restrictions), the submit button remains disabled, reducing the chances of invalid form submissions.

To conditionally disable the Submit button in your Card form

  1. In the Form Builder, go to Settings at the top.
  2. Select Conditions on the left.
  3. Create a new Enable/Require/Mask Field condition.

  • IF: Age
  • STATE: Less Than
  • TARGET: Value
  • VALUE: 18
  • DO: Disable Submit
  • MESSAGE: You must be at least 18 years old to register.

When users encounter an error message due to a condition, they receive immediate feedback which improves the overall user experience.
