Preview Button... is it possible?
September 3, 2010

I want to know if it is possible to have a 'preview' button and have it redirected to a printable page and on that page have an 'edit' button to allow the person to make changes to the data they inputted on the form prior to clicking onto the 'submit' button?  If so, please kindly tell me how.

you could setup two multi-page form, the actual form (a) and one that it is pointing to (b):

(a)'s submit button you call "preview"

(a)'s success message must contain all all your form fields {variables} (see HELP! page)

(b)'s you can call "submit"

(b) won't have any fields except that submit button


what happens is, users fill out the first form, are being redirected to form #2, see the "success message" of form #1 with all fields entered, can then choose to finally submit or go back to edit.

Thank you so much Paul!


It took a bit to figure out. But it's working perfectly!


Is there a way to format what gets redirected to form (b) to look just like the one that gets sent to my email (html version)? What I have going on right now is all the fields from form #1 gets sent to form #2 in plain text, but I want it to look like what gets sent to my email.

You'll have to use (similar) HTML in the success message to mimic your email style/layout.
