    Are there any guidelines on using "conditions"?  



    After a while if you don't keep track of the rules and actions it can get quite confusing. But if you could help me with some basics for how to use conditions in about a 40 question form then would be great. Thanks.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    We have guidelines for using conditional rule. Please see the links below:

    1. How to Hide or Show Multiple Fields at Once Based On a Single Conditional Entry

    2. How New "Conditions For" and "Order by" boxes work in conditional logics

    3. Smart Forms Using Conditional Logic


    My suggestion is that if you are going to use a field multiple times in your conditional rule I suggest you use form collapse and duplicate that field to avoid conflict with your conditions. If you come accross with any problem with your conditions feel free to contact us and anybody from the support team will be happy to help you.
