Applying conditional rules to the spreadsheet widget.

    I need to evaluate the a field that is filled from the spreadsheet file. Based on its value, I will show or hide more information. It seems like the field is not being evaluated.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Hi, unfortunately Jotform is not able to apply conditional rules to cells within the spreadsheet. What you can do is to apply conditional rules to the string associated with the current state of your spreadsheet, as shown by the screencast below:


    As you can see, I created a condition that tells me whenever there's a cell filled with the string "apple" in the spreadsheet. This can be extended to compare spreadsheets or check if your spreadsheet contains a value or not, comparisons using single cells,rows or columns is not possible yet.
