    Can I add variables out of a paypal part of the form?

    Asked by tomorrownight on June 24, 2014 at 02:29 PM

    I would like it so that when people book into the event using my form, they fill in their details, but they might want to book their spouse, family or friends all on the same time without restarting the form.  How could i make it so that when they add someone else, another payment option comes up, or alternatively when they add another ticket in the payment option it then asks their name and details?

    Yes you can show and hide fields based on conditions being met in other fields.  Here is our guide on how to do so:


    You would just make the field being shown conditional upon another field that contained the number of people requested.  You would set it to be hidden if there number selected is less than 2 and set it to show if the number is greater than one.  Please let us know if you need anything further assistance and we will be happy to help.

    Thank you for using Jotform!

    It surely is possible by adding multiple text boxes and using conditional logic to hide or show them depending on quantity selected.

    Here's an example:


    And here's a screenshot of the conditions used:

    Feel free to clone this form to learn how the conditions worked.
