    conditions

    Asked by tourkick on April 19, 2011 at 07:22 PM

    I have a long form (http://www.jotform.com/form/3595047307).

    I want it to be conditional:

    -if not a Realtor, display Questions 3, 4, and 5

    -if a Realtor, display Questions 10, 11, and 12

     

    However, it seems I need to set a new rule for each condition:

    -If not a Realtor, display Q3

    -If not a Realtor, display Q4

    -If not a Realtor, display Q5

    -If a Realtor, display Q10

    -If a Realtor, display Q11

    -If a Realtor, display Q12

     

    That's a LOT more logic than I want to mess with. Can conditions be simpler, like my first example?

    Hi,

    I do understand your concerns but currently that is just the way conditions work. However, I'd like to thank you for bringing this up, as it has been really tedious to set up conditions such as this. With that in mind, I have submitted a ticket for this feature request.

    We will have our developers take a look into this and decide if it is fit for implementation. Be aware, though, that we cannot promise a lead time as to when this change will be implemented or if it will be implemented at all. Our developers receive a lot of feature requests but unfortunately they do not have the luxury of time to grant all our users' requests.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Hi tourkick,

    With due respect to my colleague, I believe there is a workaround that you can do to make this possible (although its a bit tricky and there are some drawbacks which you may or may not tolerate). You can use the Free Form (HTML) field to add as many fields as you want and ask as many questions as you wish.

    Here is an example of this form in action - http://www.jotform.com/form/10761327195.

    You can clone this form to your account to see how it was built in the JotForm Form Builder. Then customize the content of the Free Form (HTML) fields according to your needs. Some skills in coding HTML Forms will be helpful. The problem with this workaround is that you cannot see all fields in the JotForm form submissions page. However, the email notifications sent to you will show all form fields as usual.

    Please give it a try and let us know if this workaround is acceptable for you. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you for using JotForm!
