- From the form’s Edit screen, hover over Settings in the form’s menu and click on Confirmations.
- From here, you can either edit the Default confirmation by clicking on it or click Add New to create a new confirmation.
- Next to Confirmation Type, you can choose where the user is sent after submitting your form.
- Text is the default, and will present them with a message which you can edit using the content editor under Message. Within this content editor, you can also Add Media, insert hyperlinks, post elements, and use many of the content editor features that you typically use when editing a page or post
- Page will redirect the user to a page within your website which you can select using the Page dropdown.
- Redirect will redirect the user to a URL which you can insert into the Redirect URL field.
- When you’re done customizing your confirmation, click Save Confirmation
- If you have created multiple form confirmations, make sure the correct one is toggled on, using the Active / Inactive toggle next to the confirmation name.
