    How do I create a Question with Additional Pop-up Questions?

    Asked by ryan_3cb on December 05, 2013 at 11:04 AM

    For example, there is a survey question: Do you walk your dog? radio button -yes -no. If the person filling out the form chooses the response "no" the form will then pop open a new text area below it for a new question ("i.e. why not") If the applcant chooses the response, "yes" the box does not pop open and the additional question is not asked. Is this possible? Thanks!

    I believe I understand what you are trying to do. Conditional Logic is what normally makes your form behave in a smarter way to do that so that based on the selected answer it would then show more detail if necessary.

    Example: http://form.jotform.co/form/33385439155864

    May I ask which form you were trying to achieve this on? Was it this one http://www.jotform.com/33383816184863?

    Thank you KadeJM, the example you gave is exactly what I am talking about. Yes, I was trying to do this formatting on http://form.jotform.co/form/33383816184863. How do you do your example?

    Not a problem and thank you for confirming my thoughts about that. I have created a highly detailed and color-coded Diagram of how I did that in attempt to try to help you understand what I did better. I am trying to depict the structuring of how Conditional Logic can be used to Show/Hide or do other things on your form(s).  :)

    I would also recommend cloning my demo form so that you can play around with it this way you get a better feel of how Conditional Logic works. It may additionally help to refer to the set of instructions above instructions in the link that I previously responded to you with in my last answer.

    If anything confuses you more then I apologize in advance and please let me know so that I can try my best to better clarify it all.
