    I cant make to automated field update to work

    Asked by aschwarz on January 27, 2015 at 01:43 PM

    my form

    for example on page it the user enters 3 fields.

    his answer for field number 1 should appear on page 3 as a "title" in the first field.

    answer number 2 should appear on page 4 and answer 3 on page 5.

    on page 2 he is supposed to give 10 attributes which need to appear again on page 7 along site answer #1 from page 2. page 3 attributes should appear on page 8 with answer #2 etc...

    i was told yesterday to use the "update a form value" condition rule, but it doesn't work. it works for some of the case but not all or always and i cant figure out where the problem is.  

    the form is for a sociological survey and i need to separate between the section as knowing what comes next would effect the answers given.

    please help sort this out...

    if can use the answers a plain text in the labels that would be the best case scenario, but just making the existing form work as planned would be awesome in itself.

    (the form is in hebrew, but the logic of it can be understood in the field names as they are built in a hierarchical with the first number referring to the section, the letter referring to one of the answers on page 2, and the last number refers to corresponding attribute given in page 2-4.

     

    thanks

    Amir

    I checked this some more on my end where I can confirm that it is working on my end

    You mentioned "yeah - don't know what happened".

    Do you mean that its working on your side now then?

    Or did you mean yeah as in no and that it is still giving you an issue and not working?

    If it's working and you didn't know what happened then it was probably just a temporary problem and we do apologize about any inconveniences.
