Remove Back Button on One Page

Important Update to Custom Scripting

SurveyGizmo's CustomScript Action now supports the LUA programming language. Visit our NEW Lua Scripting Resources!

Legacy Custom Scripting Language Deprecation Plans 

  1. New accounts (created after October 29, 2018) will only have the option to use Lua in scripts.
  2. As of October 29, 2018 Custom Scripting Actions will default to Lua as the scripting type in the Custom Scripting Action for accounts created before this date. You will be able to switch to the Legacy Custom Scripting; though we highly encourage using Lua.
  3. In the long term, Legacy Custom Scripting Actions will be switched to read-only. The exact date on this is to be determined; we will send notifications well ahead of time.

This JavaScript will hide the back button on that page that it has been placed on. In the example survey below the back button is hidden on the third page. 

Check it out in a survey:

We do not have a built in feature for hiding the back button on certain pages. This workaround works for most of our customers in most cases but may require some tweaking to get it right. If you have a solution that works better let us know!


On the page you'd like the back button to be hidden click Add New Action > JavaScript. Name your action and click Save Action and Edit. Now paste the below code in your action. 


Time to Test!

Now it's time to test your survey. Run through it in preview or on the live link to make sure your back button is not appearing on the page you have placed the JavaScript. 

Scripting and Other Out-of-the-Box Customizations

We’re always happy to help you debug any documented script. That said, we do not have the resources to write scripts on demand.

If you have customization ideas that you haven't figured out how to tackle, we're happy to be a sounding board for SurveyGizmo features and functionality ideas that might meet your customization. Beyond this, you might want to consult with someone on our Programming Services Team; these folks might have the scripting chops to help you to achieve what you are looking for!
