    Can Selections in Matrix Field Use in Conditions?

    Asked by ashcroft on January 29, 2015 at 08:22 AM

    I have created a form which includes a matrix tool when I try to hide or show a subsequent tools based on input to the matrix I don't see that kind of option. Have I missed something?

    Unfortunately the matrix field cannot be used in the "Conditions" function under the "Rule" part, although it can be still use as a field to be showed or hidden, depending on the rule that was set, but cannot be used to get the values on it to use as a rule itself. I would recommend that you use the plain radio or check box fields if you would like to perform conditions by selections.

    I hope that helps.

    Thank you.
