    Dropdowns and comments

    Asked by atechsupport on March 03, 2017 at 09:18 AM



    I have created a form. Some options have a drop down menu, at the bottom of the drop down the last option is 'Other'.. for this 'Other' option I would like the user to be able to add in a comment for when they select 'Other'


    I got an answer from John Benson on how to do this. He mentioned clicking on 'Settings' and 'Conditions' and then 'Show/Hide Field'

    I can't seem to get it to show up with a comment. Can somebody advise as soon as possible please its quite urgent?

    Here is the thread with the example form and how to set it up:


    The comment boxes are Long Text Entry fields and then the conditions are used to show those fields.

    If you have questions about specifics, let us know in that thread and we will be happy to help.
