    How can I use conditional logic on a field without user input?

    Asked by Johnsiscirc on January 12, 2017 at 12:57 PM

    I would like to have a submission field that enables a standby button when the submission limit has been met- so it would only be visible once the submission field is disabled (i.e. crossed out)

    You can indeed set conditions based on fields where your users do not enter data, for example, using the Form Calculation widget you could  only affect its value with conditions and with values from other fields too and still trigger conditions with this even if the field is empty; however, do note that you cannot get the number of current submissions in your form and handle fields with conditions based on this. 

    You may provide us more details about what you would like to achieve, for example, if this is based on one field that you have already set up in your form and we will be glad to help you doing it, if it is not possible then we will be glad to forward the thread to our second level as a feature request.
