    Is it possible to have subforms?

    Asked by jenzoom on July 20, 2010 at 01:22 PM

    I would like additional questions to show up directly beneath a selected checkbox in the primary form instead of beneath the entire field.

    Yes, this is possible with conditions. Please see this example:


    Now, to see how it works click on "B". It will start showing other questions.

    You can create condition by clicking on "Conditions" button on the form builder. Then choose "Show / Hide Questions" options and go from there.

    If you have any question, let me know.

    Yes but when you click it shows below the entire field thus below C instead of within the field below B. So it's not really a subform as much as a hidden part of the main form.

    If you need it to work like that, create separate questions for each checkbox. Then you can hide/show fields after that checkbox.

    Not seeing anything that says "Conditions".  Can you please elaborate a little on where that option is?

    On the form builder, click on "Setup & Share" tab on the toolbar. Then click on "Conditions" button.

    Once you click on Conditions, you will get a wizard like this:


    Use the first option to show/hide questions on the form.


    Here is the conditions that were setup for the example posted above:

    SHOW "Why are you a B?" field.
    When "What Letter Are You?" Equals To "B"

    SHOW "What is so great about being a B?" field.
    When "What Letter Are You?" Equals To "B"

    Is it possible to have a subform that can collect a subset of responses?  For example, I'm building a form in which I'd like to know what countries a person is going to and the dates they will be in each country.  Can I have those responses add to a separate form that can collect as many responses as necessary?
