Dynamic Form Button Text based on response

I am working on a Marketo form and if someone checks a box to bring a guest, I would like the button to change to say "next" but if they do not check the box and do not want to bring a guest, I would like the button to just say "submit."

Is there a way to do this?

Thank you!

Re: Dynamic Form Button Text based on response

Yes, trivially done with JS: MktoForms2 :: Dynamic button label 

Unfortunately, the easiest way (as is in the demo) is to attach to the DOM change event, which I generally discourage. You could use a dummy Visibility Rule instead (not what Josh is suggesting, but merely using the VR to trigger a Marketo Forms API event) and which would allow you to listen for whenRendered instead of generic change.

Hi Nicole,

The default form tool within Marketo won't allow for this. You can likely edit the form function outside of Marketo, however, I believe you can get a similar result by using Visibility Rules.

I presume that by hitting next will take then to a new form page where they can add in the guest details? If you add the relevant fields (Guest Name, Guest Email etc) as fields underneath your "Bring a Guest" check box, you can use visibility rules on the form to hide Guest Name/Guest Email and set them to only appear once Bring a Guest has been checked.

For more information on this, check the Marketo docs here: Dynamically Toggle Visibility of a Form Field - Marketo Docs - Product Documentation

Hi Josh,

That is correct. We would like it to go to a new page with a new form so we can capture their first name, last name, email and company name in the same fields rather than having guest fields.

Hi Nicole,

Is this so you have a new lead record created in your account for the guest? There are some problems with this - mainly that the guest never actively opted into receive your communications about the event. I suggest instead of redirecting leads to a new form where they can submit guest details that you include forward to a friend variables within the email - or social sharing options on the registration landing page - so the guest can register themselves.

Re: Dynamic Form Button Text based on response

Forward to friend also doesn't involve an opt-in to the initial e-mail. It sets new leads to Unsubscribed=true but nevertheless sends them the email. (As you can do with a referral form, depending on jurisdiction.)
