    Hi, 

    I have a parent meeting appointment form and I would like to be able to use conditional logic in order to make the form straightforward for the user.

    I would like to:

    choose the date and, depending on the answer, have it direct to the appropriate page 

    AND

    choose the year group and, again depending on the answer direct to the appropriate page.

    For example, I am a parent with a child in Year 9 and I want to attend on Wednesday.  I would like to be directed straight to the available appointments for that day.

    Please can you help?

    Thanks!

    Elizabeth

    If you're referring to redirect to a different page based on the answer, you can achieve that by using a condition.

    You can use the Change Thank You page URL based on a Condition. For more information, please check this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/317-Change-Thank-You-Page-URL-Based-on-a-Condition

    Give it a try and if you have questions, please let us know. Thank you.

    Thanks for your help, this actually means parents with multiple children can be re-directed to the beginning (or to a separate form for a different part of the school).  The re-direct I was looking for would be within the same URL, it would be to a different part of the same form.

    I was also looking to be able to use conditional formatting to choose one of 2 dates.  I have seen this done on the 'panasonic tech day registration' where the options were only shown once you had chosen one of the two days.  Unfortunately, I can't find it again!

    If you can remember the form link of the Panasonic tech day registration that would help a lot. 

    Please check my simple demo form: https://form.jotform.com/80473659624970

    Is that what you're trying to achieve?

    In the simple demo form, I used the show or hide condition depending on the chosen date. Here's a guide that you can check: https://www.jotform.com/help/316-How-to-Show-or-Hide-Fields-Base-on-User-s-Answer

    You can also clone my simple demo form to check it further by following this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Give it a try and if you have questions, let us know. Thank you.
