    looks like this "update the form field value" no longer exists in the conditions setup.

    The "Update a form field value" in the old condition wizard

    is now the "Update/Calculate Field" in the new wizard.

    And if you will be using V4, you can find that conditional logic here:

    I hope this helps. If you have other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us again anytime.

    Thank you.

    Yes, I have been using the Calculated field. However, it does not have an option to allow me to :

    - if a field is checked , or equal to "Yes", etc. 

    - then, uncheck or disable one or any option in another field.

    Thank you for waiting.

    This is possible in the Update/Calculate Field condition. You just need to manually enter the option in the Calculate Fields Value. 

    Please check this demo form that I've created: https://form.jotform.com/63634845098972. You can clone it if you like.

    Here's an example:

    I created a drop down (Question 1) and a radio button (Question 2).

    After that, I created a condition wherein if Question 1 is equal to "Red", the "Option A" in the Question 2 will be selected. Please take note that you need to manually type "Option A" in the DO field.

    You need to create 2 more conditions for the next options.

    Here's the result:

    It is the same in the Check box field. However, you need to use comma and a space if you want to 2 or more options to be selected. For example: Option D, Option E, Option F.

    Here's the result: 

     

     

    Hope that helps. If you have any questions, let us know.
