    Hello, 

    Thank you for contacting us. 

    I checked the link you provided, and it seems you are no the right track, here are the rules I saw when I cloned your form: 

    In order to complete the process:

    1. Start by creating all the fields without worrying about categorizing or dependancies. Place the fields that provide the category options for selection at the top. (I noticed you've already begun to do this)

    2. Arrange the fields in the order of dependacy/category (as you have already done)

    3. Create the conditional rules that would show the right field when an option is selected (Just like you did, as illustrated above).

    You may want to consider showing groups of fields with a conditional logic rule: https://www.jotform.com/help/196-How-to-Hide-or-Show-Multiple-Fields-at-Once-Based-On-a-Single-Conditional-Entry

    Perhaps you can respond to this support thread with the list of the fields you would like on your form, showing which category each field belongs to, and we can whip up a quick demonstration form for you to emulate. 

    Please let us know.
