Will my drop down menu conditional logic change automatically?

    Hi Guys, I have a form set up that has worked well for 18 months. The form contains some conditional logic to display certain fields depending on the input selection.

    My question is.. if I change the details within the drop-down selection fields will these changes be automatically reflected in the logic conditions so the logic continue to work correctly or will I need to manually go in and update the logic to trigger of the changed content.

    I ask as I have quite a few logic conditions that will be affected by the changes.

    Thanks in advance

    Sorry to say but when a conditional logic statement is created for a drop down menu it would require you to make manual adjustments especially if the option no longer exist. If an option is changed or removed, this is not reflected in the conditional logic when viewed. For example:

    As you can see the option Orange was previously selected for this conditional logic and despite the change made in the options available, the condition remain the same. When you access this conditional logic, Orange will be changed to the first selection available in the list which is Lemon since it is no longer an available option. 

    I hope this answers your question. Do let us know if further assistance is needed.
