    Can you create a condition within a survey matrix that opens a text box depending on the answer?

    Asked by kmlforms on February 16, 2015 at 05:07 PM

    I need to be able to provide a "Please explain" box if any of the answers are unacceptable or unsatisfactory in the survey matrix.

    Hi kmlforms,

    I do apologize, it is not possible to use the Matrix fields to have conditions applied based on the answer of your users.

    You can however choose to use different fields for each question and then have a hidden field shown.

    You can view a sample form here: http://jotform.com/form/50467185136962

    I hope this helps, please inform us if you need further assistance.
