    Manage Conditional Settings

    Asked by otabo on February 28, 2011 at 04:13 AM

    I am adding a large number of conditions for similar items which make it hard to differentiate between items. 

    For example, I have designated 6 material types in a drop down menu.

    When a type is selected it provides color options.

    There are 3 areas to specify color which means that I will have 18 conditional fields and it can be hard to tell them apart in the editor.

    Any recommendations on approach? 

    Any features I am missing?

    You will have to add conditions manually. There isn't an easy approach for that. If you can explain the issue detailed and if you can post the form address maybe we can try to help you more.

    Thanks, but don't think there is much to be done.

    It is hard to differentiate between Shoe Color 1 in Shoe Type 1 and Shoe Color 1 in Shoe type 4 out of 6 Shoe types because they are both labeled Shoe Color 1 when it is just a long scrolling list.

    Would love to see color coding or folders for conditional items in the future.

    It would help a ton.


    Thanks for the awesome support.
