    can you call up a different form depending on field conditions

    Asked by wlarehart on August 05, 2014 at 12:32 PM

    Can you create 2 or 3 different forms and then depending on an answer to the question on one form it will pull up the other form?

     

    1. For example if you have a form that asks if a person is attending college and they answer Yes, are you able to show another form that they can fill out some fields on that form and then go back to the previous form once they hit the submit button?

    But if they answer no then need to go to another form with questions.

    so therefore, there would be 3 different form to interact together??

    Hi,

    You can use our Conditional Logic to accomplish that into your form. Instead of the additional forms, I would suggest adding all the fields to a single form. Group it into a separate section, then show each group based on the selection from the first field. Please refer to this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/196-Hide-or-Show-Multiple-Fields-at-Once.

    Thanks

    Anyway, if you really want to have a separate form, that is also possible. If you need to show two (2) forms, then create three (3) forms:

    1. Base form that will hold the form. This form shouldn't have the submit button.

    2. Second form - add your form fields

    3. Third form - add your form fields

     

    In the base form, add the Radio Button field if you need someone to select only one option. Then two iFrame widgethttp://widgets.jotform.com/widget/iframe_embed

     

    Get the form URL of the second and third form, assuming that you already created the two. You can get the form URL by clicking "Preview" button while in the form builder:

     

    Now, run the iFrame Widget wizard. Add the Form URL in the "URL" section, set the height and width:

    Same process for the second and third form in the iFrame widget.

    Now, simply add the conditional logic (Show/Hide Condition). For example:

     

    The Final Output should be like this: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/42165053275956
