    Using rules in the form

    Asked by sandeepeecs on May 22, 2013 at 07:36 PM

    Can I add rules in a form like,


    if field1 is filled in by the user then, make field 2 required.

    For instance, if there is a field called 'Job qualification' then, make the 'job start date' and 'job end date' required, only if the 'job qualification' field is filled in.


    Please let me know.

    Yes. You can achieve this using the conditional logic feature of the form. Here is a guide about it http://www.jotform.com/help/57-Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic

    But I would like to clarify to you that it will not be possible in making a field property becomes "required" or "not required".

    Instead you can make the field accessible or not accessible using condition logic.

    Please inform us if you have further inquiry.
