    My show/hide conditions are not working properly

    Asked by ColeCommunityChurch on May 31, 2013 at 03:47 PM

    I have a form where I want a parent to be able to sign up multiple children at one time. We need each child to have a Name, M/F, DOB, and Grade Level entry. I did the info for Child 1 and duplicated it six times and changed the labels to Child 2, 3, 4....

    When I set the conditions If Number of Children registering equals 3...only the fields for Child 3 come up and not Child 1 and 2.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The Show condition is opposite to the Hide condition, so that your conditions based on Is Equal To rules are conflicting between each other.

    The workaround is to use a Number field with Greater Than conditional rules. Please check the following form, you can Clone it to your account:

    Is there a way to have the number match how many fields appear
    so if they were registering 3 kids, only 3 kid registrations would show up instead of all 6?
    Thanks!

    Yes, this is how it works with the bunch of Greater Than conditions.
