    How to select drop-down fields by using conditions?

    Asked by RogerYelvington01 on February 20, 2017 at 10:29 AM


    When a user selects the "select name" dropdown, then the form automatically fills the appropriate "select position" and "select email" dropdown.

    Since this is employees, I would like to have the easiest possible way to manage this function if a new employee is hired or a previous one leaves.


    Thank you!

    You can do that with the existing form by using conditions. But you will have to create a condition for each selection:

    I did that example for one name, but that will require creating for each one.

    And this is how each of condition should look like:

    I did conditions for 'Danny Arnez' only.

    Let us know how it works for you.

    Thank you!
