    Can someone select "other" and have a new text box open?

    Asked by indigosilver on August 21, 2014 at 12:38 PM

    I'm building a contact form and want to find out how clients are finding  us.  I have a drop down menu built however I would like to be able to capture information if they choose the "other" option.  Is there a way to have an additional text box pop up if they choose "other"?


    This form is not embedded on a site yet so no URL available

    You could create a "Text Box" that is conditionally shown when the option "Other" is selected in your dropdown.  Here is a demo from I made to show you what I mean:


    Please let us know if this is not what you were looking for and we will be happy to see what else we can do.

    Thank you for using JotForm!
