    You have multiple Track fields on second page of your form. All of them are dropdown fields. Conditional logic can be used with dropdown field. 

    More about conditional logic you can find inside of this guide:

    Smart Forms Using Conditional Logic 

    I have also inspected your form and I did not found any condition for your Track fields. 

    If you are unable to set conditions for your fields, please explain in more details what exactly are you trying to achieve and we check if it can be done. 

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    What I would like to do is this:

    On page 3: If an objective/sub-objective is selected, automatically fill in the field below (Module objective) with the value from the corresponding sub-objective field value on page 2


    Can you help me figure this out? Thanks in advance

    I have checked what you mentioned and unfortunately, these kind of conditions cannot be set up in the form, this is due to the widgets nature, you cannot copy fields values as you do with basic fields. 

    If you would like to apply these kind of conditions then you would need to use basic fields and follow the guide provided above by my colleague.

    Would it work with values selected in a multiple choice or input table element?

    Yes, you can set conditions based on the multiple choice field, regarding to the input table you can do it, but it would require to apply a workaround to know which value has been selected in the first row, here's an example about how you would need to set up conditions based on the input table: https://www.jotform.com/answers/1079642

    You could always let us know your workflow and we will be glad to help you setting up the needed conditions.
