Multi line question: Fields are not selectable in conditions

    Asked on May 25, 2020 at 04:25 AM

    Dear support team,

    I have a multi-line question and each field is required. I am trying through condition (enable-required) to disable 3 fields based on the answer of specific field (check the screenshots below. However on DO section you do not let me to choose the 3 fields that I want to make unrequired.




    However on different type of condition (e.g Update/Calculate field) you let the user to choose any field of the multi-line question on DO section (check below).


    Could you please fix the condition "ENABLE/REQUIRE FIELD" so i can choose fields of multi-line question on DO section? Otherwise please advise how i can enable the user to skip the 3 fields in case he answer NO on the specific question.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Greetings and thank you for your message.

    I have tested the problem, and I was able to replicate it.

    I will forward this to our developers, and as soon as we hear back from them we will let you know.

    The only alternative at the moment is to use separate fields for each question you have. 

    Thank you for your cooperation.

    How long do you think it will take to allow to choose the fields on DO section of the specific condition?

    It is weird not to allow this at the moment because you have already implemented for the condition UPDATE Calculate field.

    The alternative to use separate fields for each question is not effective because i have to create many many more fields.

    Dear @Carlos_C,

    Finally i have found other shortcut to do the same thing. So please inform jotform development team to skip the above enquiry.

    I have made unrequired by default all items of multi-line question and with the following condition i make required all fields based on the YES or NO of one question. It works and i am fine.

    Thank you.
