    Conditions: Updating Form Fields depending on the selected option

    Asked by Andrew1294 on February 02, 2015 at 09:05 AM

    Would like to have user make a dropdown selection from:


     Drop down options:

         Studio/Bedroom                                                  40

         2 Bedrooms                  Output goes to              80                   Output goes to 

         3 Bedrooms        --> Calculation field #1           120        --> Calculation field #2

         4 Bedrooms                                                        160

         5 Bedrooms                                                        200


    And have the text selection displayed on the form in a calculation field AND the corresponding numerical value (dollar amount) displayed in another calculation field.

    I created a demo form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50324509783962

    Please check if this is the type of form you're trying to create. I created 2 dropdown field and then I created a field for "Cost". You can update a specific field by using conditions.

    If this is not what you need, please provide more details about the form you're trying to create.

    Thank you!
