Slider widget: Value determines which products to display

    Hi - we're working on segmenting our services into three categories based on lots of feedback from our clients and prospects.


    So we'd have a page on our website for the products, broken up by those three categories.  But to keep it cleaner and maybe get some interaction/engagement, I was thinking to display it a little differently and wondering if this product from you could do that.

    I'm envisioning a bar that has category "A" at the left side, category "B" in the middle, and category "C" on the right.  (I can give you more detail if it helps, I figured it wouldn't matter though...)

    As the adjustment bar is moved by the visitor, the items/services (probably just simple text, maybe in a few columns or maybe bullets) underneath change as appropriate.

    Does that make sense?  Again, I can go into more detail and give you real-world examples, but I didn't want to make this 2 pages for you to have to slog through initially.

    I guess I can do with "tabs" on the page for each of the three categories instead if you don't think the above will work for my goals.


    Thanks,

    Scott

    I have created a small demo of this for you:

    1516223188The Easiest Online Form Builde

    https://form.jotform.com/80166026736961 

    I basically added a slider widget and three multiple choice fields (one for each category).

    I then added three conditions. Category A will display if the slider value is less than 33. Category B will display if the slider value is greater than 33 and less than 66. Category C will display if the slider value is over 66.

    Excellent, thank you.  I think this could work well for us. 

    I'm just a little concerned because we'll have a decent amount (maybe half a page or more) of text, which may need to be formatted in columns for each category.

    I'm guessing the easiest answer to see if it will do what we need is just to try it out because it is free, right?

    Oh, and should I assume that all forms are responsive?  I see some that specifically say responsive, so that's why I ask.  (I'm not a developer, so I'll be passing this off to somebody anyway.)


    Thanks,

    Scott

    Very welcome. Glad you like it.

    Its possible to position fields in columns.

    You can shrink fields - Form-Field-Positioning

    Or you can spread a field to a number of columns. You just open the fields properties (gear icon) and on the options tab you enable spread to columns.

    Yes absolutely, you can experiment as much as you like. And if you get stuck you can contact support on the forums http://www.jotform.com/answers or via email support@jotform.com

    Yes all forms are responsive by default.
