    Request to be able to name conditional rules to avoid confusion

    Asked by InfoACTsuccess on February 19, 2017 at 07:09 PM

    Hi there!

    I LOVE JotForm because of all of the functionality that it provides including the conditional properties. I'm currently working on a form where I will be using several conditional rules and I was wondering if there is a way, or if it is in the works, to be able to give name to the conditional rule.

    Below, I have listed the 5 conditional rules that I plan to use. as you can see, 3 of them use a single form field ("Client ID") that I, or my co-worker, will need to be making updates to these rules as time goes on in order for the appropriate folks to have the appropriate access at any given time. If we can name the rules, it will help reduce the chance of human error...

    Conditional Rule #1 (Access to Form): If "Client ID" is equal to <<I'll update this as I assign Client IDs>>, show the rest of  page 1 and "Next" button. [This allows someone who been assigned a Client ID to have access to the order form.]

    Condition Rule #2 (Purchasing Package A): If "I would like to purchase package A" is checked, show all additional products related to Package A. [This allows someone who in the process of purchasing Package A to have access to the additional products related to package A.]

    Condition Rule #3 (Purchasing Package B): If "I would like to purchase package B" is checked, show all additional products related to Package B. [This allows someone who in the process of purchasing Package B to have access to the additional products related to package B.]

    Condition Rule #4 (Purchased Package A Before): If "Client ID" is equal to <<I'll update this after someone has purchased package A>>, show all additional products related to Package A.... [This allows someone who has purchased Package A in the past to have access to the additional products related to package A.]

    Condition Rule #5 (Purchased Package B Before): If "Client ID" is equal to <<I'll update this after someone has purchased package B>>, show all additional products related to Package B.... [This allows someone who has purchased Package B in the past to have access to the additional products related to package B.]

    Thank you for contacting us.

    We do not currently have an option to name conditions, but I have attached a feature request ticket to this thread and forwarded it to our developers to see if it can be implemented at some point.

    We will let you know if we have any updates on this.
