    Is it possible to 'Jump' to a question or to 'Collapse' parts of a form based on a response?

    Asked by simonglenister on October 24, 2011 at 01:23 PM

    Is there anyway to automatically jump to a particular question on a form based on the user's answer to a particular question?


    for example, I have 20 questions on my form. If the user hapens to enter '0' (as in Zero) to Question 1, then Questions 2 to 10 have no relevance. I would like, in this instance, should the user enter '0' to Question 1 for the form to automatically jump to Question 11, if this is possible or alternatively for Questions 2 to 10 to collapse, so they no longer display?


    Is this possible?

    Yes, this is quite feasible. Several "Show / hide a form field" conditions would need to be setup to accomplish the goal. I'll see what I can come up with.

    Here is a clone of your form with the conditions I alluded to implemented. The conditions are identical in every way except that they hide different fields. The following screenshots help to explain how the conditions have been setup:

    This second screenshot examines the first condition. All of the conditions are identical except for the field targeted to be hidden. The extra rule is optional: It's a matter of if you wish the fields in question to be hidden when the page loads or only when the user enters "0" as the answer to Question 1.
