    If a field is deleted and then replaced with a field of the same type, the conditions associated with the original field will be applied to the newly

    Asked by Terrib on February 02, 2017 at 04:49 PM

    I normally clone forms, rather than reinvent the wheel each time.  I built basics, that are standard items we us each time, and then add or delete fields. 

    Somewhere in your concept of "improving" the forms, when I add a new field, i.e. radio button, it picks up the conditionals from what was in that area previously and messes up all other conditionals. 

    Example, I have a form for a trip.  Names, birthdays, activity selections, i.e. golf, spa, (which have conditionals if you choose golf which course, if you choose spa what treatment.)  I clone this form, and for the particular instance, I need to add a radio button with 3 choices for which city they are flying from.  I add it, and it picks up golf and spa conditions. 

    Please fix this.

    I will forward this to our developers to have a look.  We will let you know as soon as we have any updates.
