How can I require someone to complete one of several non-required fields?

    I am running into a strange problem with my form (http://form.jotform.us/form/40485715433152).  It is a submission form for employees to contribute to a campaign through a bi-weekly payroll deduction, one-time payroll deduction or PTO contribution.  When you click on the way you're like to contribute, hidden parts appear that allow the employee to select the amount of their contribution.

    I would like to make it mandatory that one of the fields specifying the amount of the contribution is completed.  But I can't require any of those fields, or it forces an employee to complete them all.

    With other tools I've used, you can select something that says "at least this, this or this question must be completed in order to proceed" -- but I couldn't find a way to do that within the Conditions tab.

    Similarly, with the four checkbox fields at the top of the page, we'd like to require that at least one of the checkboxes be complete (and ideally, not more than 4).  Is there any way to accomplish this?

    Thank you in advance for your thoughts!

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The solution is to set all your amount fields as required. We do not consider hidden conditional fields as required, so this should work.

    We will need some other solution for your Check Boxes. Since we are trying to stick with one topic per thread, you can open a new thread about the second question.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
