File uploads

If you want visitors to upload files through your website, for example, a resume in a job application form, we suggest you create a custom form using a third-party like JotForm or Typeform, and then embed it in your website

Next step

Next steps functionality helps you customize and control what happens after your client performs a certain action on your website, such as submitting a form.

  1. You can customize the Success message after submission field

  2. Select a Next step of your choosing. Here are the five options available in the dropdown.

    1. None - stay on the same page and only display the success message

    2. Complete a form - go to the selected form. Note: This action is not recommended for this tool.

    3. Schedule an appointment - go to the selected scheduling form

    4. Make a payment - go the the selected checkout page

    5. Redirect to another page - go to the specified section / page / URL / media

  3. Make sure to provide next step details by specifying the target such as Add form / Add scheduling form / Add payment details / Add redirect.

    1. For this example, we will select Redirect to another page since this is a common next step after a client submits a form.

    2. Select the link type from the dropdown and add the necessary information required. Then click Save.

  4. After the appropriate details have been selected (for this example, the Redirect), it displays in the interface.
