We have already created our inquiry form using gravity forms, change the settings for the form, and change the email settings of the form. Now, let’s change the confirmations setting of our form.

Once the form is being filled in, you’ll get a confirmation message showing that you have successfully submitted your information. The standard way of doing this is to set up in confirmation settings, say “Thank you for contacting us. We’ll be in touch with you shortly.”

To do this, let’s go to the Confirmation settings by clicking on the Confirmations tab.

Click on Edit

Let’s edit the Default Confirmation settings. Click on Edit to continue.

First type of confirmation: Text

There are three types to do our confirmation message. These are the following:

  • Text
  • Page
  • Redirect

The first type of the confirmation message is the text. After the person successfully submitted his/her information, the form will disappear and this confirmation message will be seen. Let’s place our message inside the textbox. We could put something like “Thank you for contacting us. We’ll be in touch with you shortly.” We can also append it with “Call us if you need an urgent assistance”.

This is now the message that the person will be seeing after he/she has successfully submitted the form.

Once done, click on the Save Confirmation.

Second type of confirmation: Page

The second way of having a confirmation is by a page. All you need to do is to select a page inside your website. Instead of showing a message after the person has successfully submitted the form, he/she will be transferred to another page, say  Home page or About page.

Third type of confirmation: Redirect

The third and last way of having our confirmation is by a redirect page. When the person has successfully submitted the form, he/she will be redirected to a page. For example, we can place our Facebook link as our redirect page. Just be careful in selecting a redirect page as your confirmation. Select the most appropriate page to redirect the person after he/she has successfully submitted the form.

This is how we set the confirmation page of a form.
