    Hello, I am working on a form and it looks like all of my conditional ducks are in a row except one path. When I select "interview type"- secondary and hiring decision "hired" nothing populates but Icannot find the condition that is throwing this. It should do the same thing that interview type "recruiter led" and hiring decision "hired" does- can I have some help?

    Hi edelp,

    It seems like you have set up the conditions incorrectly.

    Upon checking on your conditions, this part:1641801867_61dbe88b431ba_

    won't show when you only clicked on secondary as the interview type and hired as the hiring decision because of the condition you made here:1641801889_61dbe8a1c7079_

    You required the "Lifeguard" to be chosen.


    1641802117_61dbe9857b810_

    This also contradicts your other condition (Candidate will only show if "Lifeguard" will be chosen)

    What I can recommend is for you to recreate the conditions when clicking on hired and make sure you show the multiple fields (make sure to include the submit button)

    Warmest,

    Sheena

    In addition, I have checked your form and you have multiple show conditions.

    To clarify, do you want to show fields based on answer?

    Please note that if you use the show fields, the default field should be hidden by default.

    I would suggest you hide those fields that you would like to use in your show condition.

    Example condition: In your Hiring Decision(Secondary), all your conditions is show

    1641802862_61dbec6e7f776_firefox_6sDxOSk

    however, the fields are set to be shown by default already.

    Please check and hope this information helps.
