Conditional Formatting for Post-Submission Forms

  1. ZeadsDead


    I have a form on my website that is a 10 question survey, which consists of drop down answers as well as paragraph text answers.

    If the user completes the survey and provides positive answers to my drop-down questions, I want to display the following on the "Thank You" page that follows after they submit the form. Please let me know if this is possible...

    Thank you for submitting the questionnaire. We noticed you had a positive experience with us. We highly encourage you to post your comments online for other customers to see!

    Here are links to our Yelp Page:
    Here is a link to our Google+ Page:

    Just in case you forgot what you wrote, you can easy copy/paste this text below:
    [insert customer's comments from the recently-completed survey here]

    We look forward to seeing your comments online! And remember, if you need any assistance, you can always call us at 555-555-5555


    Thus, in a nutshell, how to I show the following on my confirmation page:

    1. conditional logic whereby the above section only shows if certain fields are met on our survey
    2. text from the survey is displayed on the confirmation page

    thanks in advance!

  2. Do you have a link to the page where this form is online currently?

    This is possible and there are a couple ways to do it.

    How many options does each of your 10 drop downs have? Are they just yes/no questions, where all yes answers would get you the confirmation shown above (about sharing their experience), or are the answers different and possibly more than just two selections?

    One thought I had was to weight each answer (the 'value' for each drop down option) and then create a number field which would total all these values. Then, in your confirmation, use a conditional shortcode to display your boilerplate and also their submitted values. Here is documentation on conditional shortcodes

    That approach would take care of both 1 and 2 in your requirements.

    The other approach, if your answers are not so cut and dried, would be to use the gform_pre_submission_filter to go through the logic on all your answers, and if you want to show the "share your experiences" message and values, depending on what was submitted, you could do that.

    I've shown how to do that a couple times:
