    Been tearing my hair out trying to make a small amendment to the form on the page mentioned. Would it be possible (using conditional rules) to set the number of upload buttons to correspond to the number of pages slected in the dropdown box?

    That is, the customer selects one page and sees only one upload button, the customer selects three pages, he sees three upload buttons and so on. We are trying to automate the system as far as possible, and make it as simple as possible for students to use.

    Love Jotform btw!!

    Thanks in advance.

    If dropdown =3, hide 4, 5

    If dropdown=4, hide 5

    if drop == 1 the show 1 hide 2,3,4,5

    if drop == 2 then show 1,2 hide 3,4,5

    if drop == 3 then show 1,2,3, hide 4,5

    I tested that logic on a form of mine and worked without failure 

    I am using the same logic on a form I m creating now.
