    Hi, I have had issues designing my form because I can't assign unconditional logic to slides/pages. I would like to submit a request for this function to be added to JotForm.

    This is particularly annoying because you cannot assign conditional logic to Paragraph and Section Header form elements. I have confirmed this with support for my form in the forums.

    Here is where I would use this functionality:

    Q1: Are you over 18 years of age?

    Yes>go to next slide

    No>Go to paragraph slide with information about why "You are not elegible". From this slide I want to go to "Would you like to submit feedback?" slide. This is ok if I only have a single "you are not elligible" because I can place it directly in front of the "feedback" slide. But as soon as I have more than 1 "you are not eligible" information slides, it becomes impossible to direct them all to the same "feedback" slide/page.

    Having this unconditional logic would allow for complex forms with multiple sections to be designed much more easily. In Google forms this is easy. At the end of each section of the form there is a drop-down box in the editor that says, "after Section x:" and you can select which action you want to take: "Go to the next section" or "Go to a specific section". I moved from Google Forms to JotForms because of a lack of other conditional logic available in Google Forms, but now I am missing this functionality of Google Forms.

    Can you please give an example on how you want to apply condition for paragraph field? Please note that the paragraph field has no input field based on which any condition can be triggered. You can anytime add condition to show / hide paragraph field.

    Based on the example you have mentioned, I believe it is possible to achieve your requirement. Let me try this with a demo form and will get back to you on this soon.
