    Hi ammibalustrades

    Thanks for asking. This can most certainly be done quite easily with our forms. It's just a matter of setting conditions. Clone this form and have a look at it's saved condition: Setup & Embed tab > Conditions > Saved Conditions to get an idea of how to configure your own conditions. Note that once a field is set to be shown under certain conditions, unless those conditions are met, it will be hidden by default. So, in the form at the link I have provided, since a "Show" condition was set for the "Please elaborate" field there was no need to set "Hide" conditions for the first four options. This may all sound a bit confusing at first but it will become clear with a little practice setting up conditions and rules.

    For more on conditional logic, please see our user guide article.

    Please let us know if you would like help with setting up your specific conditions and if there's anything else related to our forms with which you require assistance. Our team will gladly come to your aid.
