    Hello! I need automatically insert an address into address fields when a radio button is selected. So far, I have tried using the conditional update field. This hasn't worked so far. Thanks for the help!

    David, thanks for the response. This does not speak to my exact need, though. How do I use the field updater to put information into a multi-field form element (ex: address)?

    Unfortunately no, it is not possible to input text into an address field through conditions. It is only possible to populate the data from another address:

    In that case, could I create a prefilled address field and just trigger that info to be copied into another address field?

    Unfortunately, prefilling is not possible either. However, I think you might want to implement the following workaround:

    1) Create a new form where you capture the basic information such as the Name, E-mail, and the Radio Button option.

    2)Then create prepopulated URLs of your main current form by following these guides:

    2.1. Use this guide to pass the basic data from your new form to your main form: https://www.jotform.com/help/351-How-to-Automatically-Pass-Form-Data-to-Another-Form 

    2.2 And combine it with this guide to generated the prepopulated parameters: https://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters 

     Prepopulated URLs example:

    URL for address A:

    https://form.jotform.co/70085255864865?name[first]={name:first}&name[last]={name:last}&email={email}&address[addr_line1]=Stree One A&address[addr_line2]=Street Two A&address[city]=My City A&address[state]=My State A&address[postal]=000A

    URL for address B:

    https://form.jotform.co/70085255864865?name[first]={name:first}&name[last]={name:last}&email={email}&address[addr_line1]=Stree One B&address[addr_line2]=Street Two B&address[city]=My City B&address[state]=My State B&address[postal]=000B


    3) In your new form, create conditions to redirect to a specific prepopulated URL based on the selected radio option: https://www.jotform.com/help/317-Change-Thank-you-URL-Based-on-a-Condition 


    Here is the URL of my form for you to test: https://form.jotform.co/70586844674874 

    Hope this helps.
