  2. Customize your confirmation message or redirect link.

  3. Click the Add Confirmation (Logic Use) button to make a new set of settings. Keep doing this until you’ve set up all the options you need.

    Add Confirmation (Logic Use)


    You’re creating a form for student enrollment applications, and you’ve added a Dropdown field where students can select their major, “Computer science” or “Engineering”. Depending on the major they choose, the form will show different confirmation messages or redirect them to different links.

  4. Give each set of settings a name, then click Save to keep your changes.

Apply conditional logics

  1. Return to the form builder and open the Logics panel.

  2. Set up logics to determine which confirmation message or redirect link to show based on the student’s selection.


    For instance, if a student picks “Computer Science”, set the confirmation to Default. If they choose “Engineering”, set it to the engineering-specific message.

    Add Confirmation (Logic Use)

Before publishing your form, be sure to test it to ensure that the confirmation messages or redirect links work as expected.
