    (It is the Family Calculator form).

    Based on their selections in the Parent Income and Parent Non-Retirement Assets boxes, there should be only ONE banner that displays above the button at the bottom. It should tell them if they are Category 1, 2 or 3.

    When I am setting the conditions on the form, I am setting two rules, for instance:

    If Parent income equals <80,000 and Non Retirement Assets equals <100,000,  --> if ALL conditions apply --> then show Category 1. I also set the conditions to hide Category 2 and 3. I have ten more of these types of conditions to set up but they aren't working. The incorrect banner shows, or else two banners show, or no banners.

    Can you help?

    Yes, that is the correct form. The Retirement category should not be taken into account in the conditions. So I am leaving off that column.

     

    I replied previously with all of those numbers...are you able to see that in our message thread?

     

    Thanks so much!

    @kristyhunt,

    First of all, you will need to replace symbol codes with actual symbols < and in your Radio Button options, otherwise conditions will not work.

    Also, the problem is that you can not use multiple conditions based on one field. If you add all these conditions based on two fields they will not work. Unfortunately, our system is not designed for advanced conditional logic.

    I have spent some time working on a workaround that is based on a multiple pages form with multiple 'Non-Retirement Assets' fields.

    I have used 'Show' and 'Skip to a page or end of the form' conditions in my workaround.

    Result:

    http://form.jotformeu.com/form/22836112381347

    You can clone that form to your account, to check it further.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
