Is there a way to automate the flagging process, so that when a certain feild is filled in it will automatically flag the submission?

    Unfortunately, such feature is not available on JotForm. But can you please explain further what you are trying to achieve and we will try to give you a possible alternative?

    Thank you.

    I am using Jot Forms to conduct quality audits and would like to be able to quickly identify non-conformances when viewing the submissions. The data set is pretty large and it becomes a bit cumbersome to sort for NC’s. It would just save me a lot of time if they were automatically flagged.

    Hi there, 

    If I understand correctly, you have fields on your form that are required (mandatory to have been filled).  If this is the case, then simply set those fields as "Required"

    If you had an specific field and you wanted to know if that field had the wrong value entered to it, you can set conditions to help you with that.

    Here is a  sample form.

    I added a radio button with choices.  I need option1 to be the correct answer.  If the answer is anything other then that, then the read-only text box with a value of "incorrect" will show.

    So, with the Show/Hide conditions, you can set the labels to appear or not.  If they are hidden, they will not be included in the submission.  

    Please let me know if that helps!
