    How to setup conditions to show a different field based on a previous input?

    Asked by YFU on February 21, 2017 at 03:21 AM

    Good morning. I'm trying to make a form in which the participants would get to answer different follow-up questions based on the first answer that they chose in a multiple choice question. For example, if they chose answer A on question 1, they'd be directed to question 2, but if they chose B, they'd get sent to question 3 instead. Is that possible with JotForm? =)

    Thank you in advance and have a nice day!

    Yes that's possible by using Conditions. It's a relatively straight-forward IF-THEN logic statement where you can set form fields to SHOW/HIDE depending on a previous user input.

    e.g. IF Field 1 is Yes THEN SHOW Field 3

    I'll be linking our main guide below, along with some related guides that would help you.
