2) Click on the checkbox field and then click Properties:

3) Select "Options" from the tabs:

4) Delete the original content and replace with the following HTML code:

5) Click General tab and switch the Required option On to make the check box a mandatory field:

6) Then save the form and preview it.

JotForm V3:

I need to have a section on my website where the user reads through an agreement/waiver form and then clicks "agree" or "disagree". If agree is clicked, they are forwarded to a registration page. If disagree is clicked, they are returned to the main home webpage.

Can this be done with Jotform?

What I have done in the past is to create my YES and NO check boxes. Then, I go to the "conditions" tab. In this instance, a Thank You page was not needed, so I reset the custom URL thank you link to match the YES or NO checkbox. I don't know it you can sub a URL for a conditional email setting or not. If so, that would accomplish the same thing. May be the "low-tech" way to do it, but it worked fine.

Here is a coding example if you want the link to open in a new window.

CLICK to got to JOTFORM!

Nevermind the coding did not come up. You can just Google "what is the code to have a link open in a new window?" and you should be able to find it.

I'd like to get a 'hard copy' SAVE of the total agreement with name and toggled T&C box on 1 pdf.

Now when my T&C form is submitted I only receive the name in my Jotform inbox.

Hi guys, the code provided above doesn't allow for the terms and conditions to open in a new window. Instead it redirects the viewer away from the form. Please help me with this asap!

I don't know anything about this stuff, all I want is the terms and conditions to show up when I print the PDF of their submission. How do I do that?

My form is sent to me and also a copy to the submitter. I want them to get a copy of the agreement when the form is sent... Right now, all I get is the acknowledgement that they agree to it and have read it. How do I send a copy of those terms (they are in html format) with the form when it is submitted.?
