    How do I setup conditions within form matrix

    Asked by southernstar on April 24, 2014 at 04:49 PM

    I have created a form: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/41136475550957


    I used a form matrix that will ask individual questions and require a yes / no answer. If the user selects NO I would like it to "require" a Note of some sort. How can I add the note and/or use conditions to allow this.

    Unfortunately, that is not possible with Matrix Field. There is no way you can select an individual option in Matrix Field to use in any logic of the form. You can use standard radio buttons to use a hide/show condition to display a Text Area field for your user to fill out. It may make your layout less compact but it is a working alternative of what you are trying to achive. 

    This is my example form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41137350479960?

    I have cloned your form and made an example using your first matrix.


    Do let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.
