    How do I have a form post values that correspond to drop down list selection?

    Asked by jjcar on June 15, 2017 at 01:31 PM

    I am developing a form to provide life insurance quotes.  The drop down menu for the term length lists the various term life policy lengths, e.g. 10 year term, 20 year term, etc. These selections need to correspond to specific numbers that are stored and posted to the actual quoting engine.  I simply need to know how to accomplish this task.  

    Thank you for your assistance.

    You can use the Show/Hide field condition so that the corresponding drop down field will appear based on the selected answer. Please check this demo form: https://form.jotformpro.com/71656297277975.

    Here's a guide on how I created this demo form:

    1. I added a single choice field and 3 dropdown fields.

    2. I created a Show/Hide Field condition wherein one of the 3 dropdown fields will show depending on the option selected in the single choice field.

    Here's the result:
