    How to make a "double" option

    Asked by anglhz on February 26, 2015 at 03:12 PM



    I really have no idea how to call this topic but I'll explain it.

    I wonder if you click on a DROPDOWN menu and choose an option another options comes up.



    Dropdown (Food)

    Options 1 (Carrots)

    Options 2 (Bread)

    Option 3 (Fruit)


    If you now choose "Bread" in this dropdown form, then a new "dropdown" gets in the form saying ex.

    Dropdown (from Bread)

    Option 1 (Dark bread)

    Option 2 (Toast)

    Option 3 (White Bread)


    I dont know if i'm explaining myself to good but i hope you understand it :D


    Is this feuture possible?

    I believe I understand what you are looking for.  This can be accomplished using conditional logic in your form:


    Basically, you would have 3 fields that are conditionally shown based on the selection made in the first field.  Here is an example of the condition that would show the "Carrots" dropdown field if "Carrots" is selected in the "Food" field:

    I set up a similar condition for each other set of options.  Here is a quick test form to show you how it works:


    Here is a guide on how you can clone it if you would like to see the whole form:


    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
