    How do I get one Report Field using Conditions & Hide Field

    Asked by CSBK on February 06, 2013 at 10:51 PM

    I like the Conditions -> Show / Hide a form field Options in Jotform so when a user chooses/enters a value then the next field can be hidden and another shown, making it appear as if the it was the same field but more applicable and easer for the user. For example, a user would have a shorter list that is more applicable to the field above. The problem is, when making a Excel Report, there will be multiple columns report 'Fields' representing one answer.


    For a work around, could I automatically fill out one field using multiple hidden conditions fields. How Can I make a hidden field that is automatically filled by multiple drop-down selections. Some topics that shows possibilities.



    Can I create drop downs that are dependant on other drop downs?

    Hi CSBK,

    Are you saying that what ever selected on a "dropdown field", will be dynamically prepopulated on the "hidden field"? If so, this would be possible using your form source code and apply custom scripts there to create such function. We can help you create the script if it's possible. We would suggest to finish the form first containing those mentioned fields then provide to us the form URL and we'll see how best we can deal with that.
