    Do conditional logic rules follow any order based on whether they #1, #2, etc in the list of conditions? I'm trying to show only certain fields when a dropdown menu item is selected, but I can't seem to get it to work. I don't want to have to update the conditional fields every time I add a new field that belongs to the same category as I'm hiding/showing. In other words, I have a set of teacher bio text fields, one for each teacher who works for us. I want to show their bio field only when specific schools from the school dropdown are selected. If I add in a new teacher bio field I don't want to have to update all the conditions in the system. Right now I have a condition for each school where I select which fields should show.

    I think I actually figured this out. I needed to hide the fields on the form by default, then use conditions to show them when specific schools are selected. Please confirm that I won't run into any trouble doing it this way or if this is the correct way. But this seems to be working.

    I have checked your conditions and it seems you're using the show condition only. With your current setup, it seems to be working correctly.

    Do note that to be able to show a field, you would have to hide the fields first and it seems you have made the default fields to be hidden.
