    Can I make a conditional inside the Dropdown box?

    Asked by Yaeosi on April 10, 2013 at 06:31 AM

    My problem is this:

    I have one dropdown box with several options, and I want that in function of the first choice, in the next dropdown box there will be only allowed some of the options, not all of them.

    I want to do this because later, in the excel page I want all the information in two columns.

    In a practical example:

    in the first dropdown, called ACTIVITIES, I have BASKETBALL, TENIS, SOCCER, FOOTBALL. 

    In the second dropdown, called DAYS, I have MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY, MONDAY-WEDNESDAY, TUESDAY-THURSDAY.

    And the trouble is that if in ACTIVITIES I choose TENIS, I want that in DAYS, they only allow me to choose TUESDAY or THURSDAY. But if I choose SOCCER, I want that they onluy allow me to choose MONDAY-WEDNESDAY.

    So when I go to the excel page I can see in one column the activity and in the next one the days of practice.

    I don't know if I can make it in another way that is not with conditionals, so please enlihgt me!

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Erik, if I am understanding you correctly basically it sounds like you want the first dropdown to hide some other options if Option A in the first dropdown is selected then Options B and C would be hidden in the second dropdown. 

    I think probably the best way to do this would be to split them up into different dropdowns and then have it show only the dropdown that matches the catagory.

    Please see this DEMO to get an idea of how you could do this. Feel feel free to clone it if you want. Let me know if this is something that will work for you and if not then I will try to come up with something else.

    That was the first solution that I thought, but then in the excel report, I would have three different columns with the data colected form the LEVEL dropdown, and I would like to have all the results in the same column.

    In this one, I would like that the dropdown of DAYS only shows the subdays from the activity you choose in ACTIVITY.

    But unfortunatly I think it's impossible.

    Hi,

    Yes, you are correct. It is not possible to only show the subday from the activity you choose in activity.

    If you have more question please feel free to contact us again.! Thanks!
