    Can you have 'required' in just one collapsed section?

    Asked by gcustudentsassociation on November 26, 2014 at 07:59 AM

    I have 3 collapsed section in one form and I was wondering if there is a way that if I make a text box 'required' then it only affects that collapsed section? When I tried it, even when I was filling out another section it still needed to be filled in.

    Yes, you can achieve that over the conditions.

    Go to conditions and select Require a form field option, then next.

    I have presumed that you want to set the image upload for Facebook field if they add any Facebook related info, so that they do not skip uploading a photo as well.

    To do that we check if FB info or FB link is changed - not empty and if it is, set the first upload field as required.

    * just a note - while the example above is for your 2 specific fields, it can be set to check any fields and require any other.

    You can see it in action here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43294575023960

    Do let us know if that is what you were after.

    Best Regards,
