    Conditions doesn't work correctly

    Asked by vytautas.civilis on April 06, 2014 at 12:00 PM

    Dear Fellows,


    I've created the form with conditional sections hiding/showing.


    This doesn't seem to be working correctly for some reason.

    I'm attaching the screenshot with the ruleset.

    It works for condition No. 2, but doesn't work for condition No. 3:

    I can still see the section "Lukas" after selecting "Dovydas".


    Am I missing something about conditions behavior, or is this something that might be fixed at your side?


    Eagerly looking forward to your reply.

    Hi, upon checking your conditions, I see there is conflict because when you set a field to show once a specific selection is done, it means it is hidden until that selection is meet. I have cloned your form, and did some conditions based on what I understood you are trying to accomplish:

    You may try my example of your form, and let us know is that is how you want it to work, if not, please specify how you want it to work.

    Thanks for very quick response.


    I'm not sure I understood the reasoning, but your form works as I'm trying to achieve. Would it be possible to see the ruleset?

    You may clone the sample form provided by our colleague BDavid

    Use this guide -How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    This is the URL of the test form 



    When you clone the form, you will be able to see and study the condition logic setup on the form using the form builder.

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.

    Amazing support :) And cool cloning function.


    I've struggled with the original form though, and created simplified version (that would work as well):



    The idea is that if you select any guy, you'd be able to see two others for evaluation.

    It's working ok for 1st guy, for 2nd I can see only one guy, and for 3rd guy I don't see anyone.


    I don't hide any section, just showing (as in BDAVID's example). Any tips&tricks for that?
