    Un-require fields based on other field's input

    Asked by carolynjstrong on June 22, 2017 at 03:25 PM

    On a political donation form I need state required info about employment. I have that as a required field. If retired, I don't need it. Can I set it up so that user can click retired and bypass 4 fields of otherwise required fields?
