    Can we show/hide fields based on user input?

    Asked by mking1423 on May 26, 2017 at 01:21 PM

    Is there a way to make entry to a text box conditional on the previous yes/no question.  For example, we ask "Do you have a conflict of interest?" and have a yes/no answer box.  Then we have "If answer is yes, please describe" and have a text box.  I would like to have the text box be required if the answer is yes and not be required if the answer is no.

    We do indeed allow for conditional logic in forms:

    The specific type I believe you are looking for would be a show/hide condition:
