    Feature suggestion:

    I am constantly making lists and creating hide/show functionality that requires me to do a lot of scrolling through all of the elements in my form.

    It would be awesome if when I selected an item repeatedly (more than once) the app would take me to that item again when I added a new condition.

    Also, as I work through the list related to that item for example, Materials. It would take me to the most likely item to hide and show.



    I am hiding / showing materials from a list.

    The Materials list has 8 items. 

    When I select Materials twice the conditional formatting tool takes me to Materials next time I add a condition.

    The tool would also recognize that items with the same name as the materials in my Materials section would be most likely to be my next choice and take me to it.

    Even if it is not my next selection the probability that it would be closer is pretty high.

    This would save a lot of time and a lot of awkward scrolling.

    This is quite a nice suggestion and I imagine would save time and enhance productivity in the long term.  With that in mind, I have submitted a ticket for this feature request and added this to our feature request list.

    We'll have our developers assess the idea and have it implemented in due time. However, be aware that we cannot give a lead time as to when this will be implemented or if it will be implemented at all. We receive a lot of user requests everyday and our devs do not have the luxury of time to have all requests granted.

    We will notify you of any updates regarding this suggestion via this thread so stay tuned. We appreciate all user inputs, and your is no exception. Thank you for using Jotform.
