Form Buttons

There are several buttons that can appear on your form: Submit, Clear all answers, Print, Next, Previous, Preview, Save for later, Update Submission, Go to URL, and Fill again.

The Submit button appears by default on all forms. The Clear all answers and Print buttons can be enabled in the Form Editor. To do so, click on the Submit button area to open its Edit panel and select them by turning on Additional buttons.

The Next and Previous buttons will automatically display on multi-page forms. To enable the Preview and Save for later buttons you need to check their features in the Advanced section (under the Submissions tab). The Update Submission button appears when users edit their submission.

However, the Go to URL and Fill again buttons are specific to the Thank you page that appears after a form is submitted. To make them available to users, you must enable them from the Options menu in the Thank You section.

You can change the appearance of your buttons using our form designer. Go to Design and expand the Buttons section.
