    Hello,

    Does Jotform have the functionality of the hide/show logic, but on a multiple question level? For example, I would like only a certain set of answers to be available on one question, based off of the value of the last question. I believe I saw somewhere that this was possible, but haven't found a way to do it.


    Thank you

    I understand how to apply Hide/Show logic to a form, which hides and shows whole fields based on an answer to a question. What I am asking is this: Is there a way to limit the number of answers in a multiple choice (by hiding them) based on the answer to a previous question? My end goal is to only have ONE question where a certain question is asked. Creating multiple different questions with different answer selections is not what I want to do. My Excel export of the data will not be useful if I cannot have only ONE field where an answer is inputted.


    Let me know your thoughts and thanks for the speedy replies.

    You can enable the Entry Limits for the Multiple Choice field in the Properties page. Here's a screenshot:

    Unfortunately, you cannot hide specific options based on the answer to the other field. 

    If you wanted to limit the options that can be selected from a drop-down list depending on what the form user selected, please check our Dynamic Dropdown widget. Here's the link: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/dynamic_dropdowns

    I also created a demo form that you can test: https://form.jotform.com/82188329471969

    I hope this helps.
