    How can I make a whole group required without adding a required tag to only one item?

    Asked by designisgrowth on September 19, 2014 at 04:30 PM


    I have this form: http://mkpathology.webship.com/client-center/supplies.html

    It has a list of products but my clients are able to submit the form without picking any products. Now, my question is, is there a way to make a group required so that they can't do what I mentioned above.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Daniel.

    I see that you are familiar with the conditionals. :)

    I would suggest next. Use checks on your products with conditionals so that you are sure that at least one is filled out before the submit button is shown on the form. Doing this they would not be able to click on the submit and submit your button without selecting any product.

    You could go even a step further and show a message to select a product until select something using the same code.

    I have created a quick sample of what I have suggested for you to check out (and clone if you like) and you can see it here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/42616681511957

    Do let me know what you think and it that is what you wanted to achieve?

    Best Regards,

    Hi Ben,

    Is there any way I can submit the form and see if doesn't allow the form to be submitted unless at least one product is selected?
