Prevent submit if not click on a link

Hello,

I'm new to this community.
I'm looking for a way to display a link in a survey (Will open other tab with training/info video).
We would like to prevent submiting the form if the link hasn't been clicked.
Or just record the click on the link.

Any idea on how to accomplish that ?

Thanks !

  • Dear Eric,

    I am sorry to say but there is no built-in functionality that could capture the exact number of times the link inserted in the survey has been opened.

    As a workaround, you can force respondents to answer a question by setting the validation to mandatory.
    In that case, you need to select “Must Answer” option to make the question mandatory. Respondents will not be able to proceed to other pages or submit your survey until the question is answered. If the respondent doesn’t answer the question with this validation type, the system will not show the alarm message with the text of the corresponding question for the respondent to find it.

    You can find more information about this feature on our Help Center.

    Hope it’s helpful.
    In the meantime, should you have any additional questions, please let us know.

    Best regards,
    Natalia

  • Natalia,

    Thanks for your quick answer.
    I managed to do what I wanted with javascript.

    - I hid a mandatory "checkbox" question using css
    - Get the html element containing the link
    - Get click event of the link
    - Check the hidden question

    I hope that can help someone.
    Thanks !


    function start() {

    document.getElementById('questionDivEntireId28180272').style.display = 'none';

    if (document.getElementById('AnswerLabel28140351_144939414')!=null){
    document.getElementById("AnswerLabel28140351_144939414").onclick=function ( )
    {
    vpSetResults("Q1.A1")
    };
    }

    }

    jQuery(document).ready(function () {
    start();
    });
