    How do I set up conditions?

    Asked by slaprade on June 15, 2010 at 10:32 AM
    I am trying to determine what software to purchase between JotForm and other form builders. One thing
    I am having difficulty figuring out is how you do conditions? For example I am setting up a bullet list. If I choose one option then I would like one set of fields to be shown if I choose the other then a different set of fields would be displayed.

    JotForm conditions are very simple. You should create a condition for each question that needs to be shown if that particular checkbox or radio button is checked.

    For example, let's  say you have a form like this:

    1. What letter are you?
    A
    B
    C

    2. Why are you a B?

    3. What is so great about being a B?

    You should like to only show 2 and 3 if the option "B" is selected on the first question. What you do is to create two conditions that says something like this:

    If "What letter are you?" equals to "B"
    Then "show" "Why are you B?" field

    If "What letter are you?" equals to "B"
    Then "show" "What is so great about being a B?" field

    JotForm so freaking easy to use, it took me less time to create a real form to show this than to write the description above:

    Here is the conditions of this form:



    Enjoy!

    Though this thread is quite old it seems to have resurfaced.  Just in case anyone else may come across it, our conditions have come quite a long way in last few years:
