Return Access to Bypass Forms

Carrot forms have a feature that allows your site visitors to bypass filling out a form if they have already completed it before; however, you must activate this setting to make that possible. This is useful for requiring an opt-in to see a specific page or other content on your website. If you have a buyer site where you have property listings with an access form to see the properties, this is especially helpful!

Let’s go through the steps to enable return access so your visitors can bypass forms.

Step 1: Go to your Site Dashboard > Content > Forms Section

Step 2: Access the Form’s Confirmation Settings

Once in the forms section, hover your mouse over the “Settings” option and click “Confirmations”. You can access the confirmation settings by clicking this link.

Step 3: Edit the Default Confirmation

Step 4: Activate the Confirmation Bypass

Make sure the confirmation is set to a “Page” or “Redirect” so the bypass sends your visitor to a live page. Activate the bypass by checking the box to “Allow Return Access.”

Note: This feature will not work on your homepage form. We’ve disabled this from being active on the Homepage because once a lead fills out the form, they would never be able to see your Homepage due to being automatically redirected.

That’s it! Now once a visitor has filled out this form, they will automatically be redirected to the confirmation page rather than having to fill out the form again.

Note: this status is saved to the visitor’s browser, so if they visit the site from another computer/device or clear their browser’s cookies, they will be asked to submit the form again.
