Is it possible to HIDE a bunch fields and show them until certain question is answered?Asked by marconey on October 02, 2013 at 03:37 AM
This logic seems simpler to me (unless of course I have been behind on logic eh!). Here's the scenario: When the form initially loads there are some basic fields - name, email etc. which have to be shown always as they are not conditional upon something else. But I want some fields to be hidden BY DEFAULT but appear ONLY when an existing question has been answered either yes or no. Now I know that this can be done but one has to setup the rule on that existing field, then hide the field if the existing question is either empty or is equal to or not equal to something, then have the field show up if a certain condition is fulfilled... But is there a way to select a bunch of fields and hide them all and THEN ONLY have them show up when a question is answered in a certain way / a condition is fulfilled? I think this would flow more logically and intuitively no?!!
Anyone would like to enlighten this mind? :o)
Thanks in advance much!
Thanks for contacting us Kenneth.
Are you talking about this form http://www.jotform.com/32556893734163? If so, we would like to know which are the fields you want to hide and the field or question that will have the condition. In that way we will be able to try to accomplish what you need.
We'll wait for your reply.
Thanks for using Jotform.
To have a field hidden by default, use a Show condition instead of a Hide one. With that in mind, replace both of the form's conditions with the following single condition:
The result can be seen in this clone.
The way our conditional wizard is configured, once a "Show" condition is set on a field, it's hidden by default and only displayed when the specified condition(s) is(are) satisfied. Our product has no other mechanism to show/hide fields.
Is this what you meant?
Just as a suggestion: I think it would be nice to have a visibility property for each of the different field types (along with the other properties such as field width ec.) which could be set to hidden (without having to go through the conditional logic mechanism) and then through the conditional mechanism apply logic similar to what you suggested above. That would be a bit more intuitive. Like anything else this logic has its +s and -s I am sure but just thought I'd say :o)
Thanks for all that you guys do. You are simply amazing. Both JotForm and you guys / gals!
Thanks and glad to hear my colleagues was able to assist you with this.
Should you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to let us know here.
Is it possible to hide fields unless they answer a specific question yes or no from above.
If I ask the client a specific question and they answer no - then the below fields (for them to enter information in will NOT appear).
If they answer yes then the fields of information they need to fill out will appear for them to fill out.
Then after they filled out information is there a way to click on a button for them to add another group of information.
Lets see if I can give an example:
My question: Do you have children? Yes or No
If they click on No....then they move on to the following questions.
If they click yes....then other fields will appear where they need to provide information about that child.
after they enter information on one child then I would like another question for them add another child yes or no...if click yes the same fields as above appear to enter information on that child....etc.
Is this possible?

We are using Google forms to create an intake form for our treatment salon. I would like to have the technician notes for the treatment to be inputted into the same form completed by the client, but I don't want the client to see the fields that we are completing regarding treatment. What is especially useful in google forms is to have all the data associated with the client (client completed info plus the technician notes) in the excel spreadsheet. Is this something you can help me problem solve? I believe I want to be able to hide a series of fields for future use once the client finishes their part on the form, but I'm open to any solution.
