    "Is Equal to" operator missing in conditions

    Asked by ghines on June 26, 2014 at 03:40 AM


    I'm trying to add a condition to my form and "Is Equal To" is missing from the dropdown rule.  I only have the options "Is Empty" and "Is Filled".

    Why is the "Is Equal To" option missing?

    The condition operators that are available depends on the type of data a field can accept.

    For example, in your form, 'is equal to' are not available for upload and full name fields, because they take complex data types.

    If you want to use an 'is equal to' operator for the full name field, you will have to replace it with a regular text box instead. Meanwhile, upload fields can never use an 'is equal to' operator.

    Hope this helps.
