    If a required field is hidden, can a user compete a form without entering info into the required field?

    Asked by JFedGMW on May 09, 2017 at 08:43 AM

    I have a form that asks "how many children will be attending?" with a dropdown choice of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6. I've set up a conditional to display name and date of birth for child 1, child 2, etc. We'd like to make each of these fields required, but that does that create a problem if Child #2 name and Child #2 birth date are required and the user chooses only 1 child attending, completing only the name and birthdate for the child attending?

    Hey JFedGMW,

    If required fields which are not visible to the user will not be part of the validation process. Therefore, user will be able to submit the form.
