Upgrading the power of conditions will help us a lot.

    So we use Jotform as our main form for almost every purpose. This means that upgrading the power of Jot conditions will help us a lot. 

    That been said, my idea is as follows and I hope you can send that to the developing team.

    in Show/Hide conditions 


    Although this is a great tool, it could use some upgrades

    My idea is that the condition could be: 

    1st-  "selector field will use calculation values"

    2nd- "option 1   = "question 1 ID"

            "option 2   = "question 2 ID"

            ... etc

    3rd- IF "selector" is filled

           Show field:"insert field ID from Selector dropdown"

    THIS WAY only one condition will be able to Show/Hide fields depending on selection.

    I know this could be done by some simple scripting but i would need to download the source and actually modify it. But it would be great to be user friendly.

    I don't know if my explaining is easy to understand, I hope it is.

    Thank you,

    Are those individual or nested conditions? Our conditions support nested ones already, and it seems like you have implemented it in your form example:


    Also, it is already possible to use calculation values: https://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value 

    And it is possible to insert form field values into other fields based on conditions: https://www.jotform.com/help/268-How-to-Insert-Text-or-Calculation-into-a-Field-Using-Conditional-Logic

    my idea is for an individual condition. like in my example there is only 1 IF and 1 action. 


    Please note that I want to insert the condtional value INSIDE the condition itself and not inside any field.

    As my colleague has already suggested the feature you request is already possible with assigning calculation values to the fields. Besides that, you can use form calculation widget or conditional calculation

    I hope this helps. Please check the guides and let us know if you need further clarification.
