    I'd like to ask a question which, if answered 'yes', would spin off a 2nd question or field. For example, I'd like my question to be "Meeting Room Required?" with a Yes or No option and if it's answered "Yes", to then offer a blank field for location. How do I do this?

    Hi @georgettejatas!

    Thank you for contacting our support team.

    To accomplish the objective that you have mentioned, you would need to use the Conditional Logic of your form to show a previously hidden field after the input of your respondent. I will go ahead and provide you the step by step process here.

    1) Add a field to your form to be hidden

    2) Hide the field following the screencast below

    3) Create the conditional logic that will show the field when 'Yes' is selected

    Follow the steps in the following screenshot:

    You may also use my sample form for reference, feel free to make test submissions or even clone the form so you have a test form available. https://form.jotform.com/200215979015048
