What does the "contains" option for the conditional logic do?

    I'm making an RSVP form and I'm using the conditional logic wizard to ensure that only guests I've pre-written into the wizard are allowed to fill out the RSVP form.

    I am using the "is equal to" option for them to enter their names currently, but I don't want guests to be denied access to the rest of the form if they don't enter their names exactly as I have them in the conditional wizard. Does the "contains' option allow for more flexibility in this regard? For example, if the invite is addressed to "John and Jane Doe" and the guest only fills in "John Doe" in the name section, I don't want them to be denied access because the name entered isn't equal to "John and Jane Doe". 


    Thanks for your help

    This is correct, the contains option is more flexible. You may set the contains 'Doe' rule to accept any value with the 'Doe' keyword, it is also case-insensitive, so the 'doe' value is also fine.
