    How to display some results in one field based on selection in a drop down field?

    Asked by adea on April 28, 2017 at 12:48 PM

    I want to be able to have people select a state in a drop down field and have it display the schools within that state which are in a checkbox field (I can put these in a radio button field if it will work better).  Is it possible to do this?

    That is actually possible, but the problem is with your checkbox options, you created them as links with a tag so I was not able to create such condition.

    I'll show you what I mean:

    If your option in checkbox is regular, without a tag:

    You can create a condition like this:

    And that will work so when you select the option from a drop-down checkbox will be selected. Also, that will only work if you use the regular drop-down field:


    But you can choose there US states as predefined options:

    Let us know if that could work for you.

    Thank you!
