How do I get a dropdown field only to show when a certain answer is chosen from a previous dropdown?

    So I have a dropdown with several choices.  I want to make it so that if one particular answer is chosen from that dropdown, then a new dropdown will appear with more questions regarding that choice they made. It's a dropdown that wouldn't ordinarily be there. 

    Is that possible? If so, how?


    I am providing a link from a website's form.  It does exactly the behavior that I need. 

    When selecting the "Appraisal Purpose" and choosing "Tax Appeal" as your selection, a new field (Tax Year) appears. 

    Thank you!

    What you are trying to accomplish is possible using SHOW/HIDE FIELD conditional logic — Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic

    And here's a direct link that you can use as a reference to create the condition that will show field(s) in your form based on another field's answer — How-to-Show-or-Hide-Fields-Base-on-User-s-Answer

    Here's a sample form that I created —

    Here's the condition in that form


    I hope this helps. If you have other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to let us know.
