    The conditions of my form do not show/hide the fields specified

    Asked by swalther on March 26, 2014 at 08:50 AM

    Guys, your conditional formating rules are badly broken.


    Pleae have a look at my form: http://form.jotformeu.com/form/40842821370349


    There are 4 rules for the hardware field. Only the first rule works.

    How can this be fixed?

    Upon checking your form conditions I found that there was a condition conflict that's why your form does not work as expected.

    The cause is that you have setup two more conditions which are not needed. Those are the Hide conditions and conditional actions: 

    Since you already defined when the fields will be shown, that means that it the conditions are not met, those fields will remain hidden. So, as shown in the screenshot, you have to delete the Hide ruls and conditions. So, your conditions have to be this way:

    Then your form will work in this way (This is a cloned version of your form): http://form.jotform.co/form/40844364115855
