Show/hide text base on user inputs

    Asked on January 20, 2017 at 04:48 PM
    Hello,
     
    We have a form that asks clients a series of 5 questions. 
     
    The fifth question contains 4 checkbox fields and users tick all of the statements (checkboxes) that apply to them. 
     
    Once they have finished ticking all of the relevant statements (checkboxes), the user selects the next button. 
     
    The user then sees a final answer page (i.e. a page that tells them what they need to do). 
     
    This page populates with one of two statements at the top, followed by a list of relevant statements / lines from the previous checkboxes. The list of relevant statements / lines that is shown varies each time, depending on the answers given to the previous 5 questions. 
     
    We currently do this using text fields. So we create a text field on the answer page to match each statement / line in the checkbox fields. Then we use the show / hide conditions to either make each text field either appear or not appear on the answer page. 
     
    While this process technically works, it does not present well to the user. As there is excess white space between each of the text fields on the answer page. 
     
    I was wondering, is there a way to reduce the amount of "white space" on this final page? Or is there a better way of having the statements / lines from the checkbox fields appear or not appear on the final page (i.e. rather than using text boxes) ... which would avoid having the text so spread out? 
     
    Long story short, I am hoping to find out how we can create a condensed list of answers on the final page based on the responses people give us to the preceding 5 questions. I feel like my text field process is a clunky way of achieving the goal. So I am hopeful that someone can show me a better way of setting it up.  
     
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. 
     
    Thanks :)

    You can actually display a preview of all the answers using "preview before submit" widget but unfortunately, you can't apply a condition.

    I think what you just did is the only solution available. You can display specific text base on users answer. Guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/316-How-to-Show-or-Hide-Fields-Base-on-User-s-Answer

    If you want to display fields value on text elements, just use the field name variable e.g. {field1}

    To get the field names, just open the field properties > advanced > field details button. Example:
