    How to update the option values of radio button / check box or dropdown fields conditionally?

    Asked by JohnSSmith on March 19, 2015 at 10:18 PM

    Under the conditions we have this

    Update a form field value
    Use text values from multiple fields, predefined text, or the result of complex calculations

    Which works well.

    However I would like to extend its functionality slightly.

     

    Instead of only updating a single field value, I would like it to have the ability to update the Options in a Checkbox, Radio button, or Drop Down List.

    Options
    Users can choose from these options
    Option 1
    Option 2
    Option 3

    To make it work, we may need a new "Return Character" we can place after each field chosen, so that the system knows what are new Options to be placed on a new line.

    Please see the attached mock up

    Hello JohnSSmith,

    If I understand your requirement correctly, you want to add add/update the option values of radio button / check box or dropdown fields conditionally. Is that correct?

    Let me send a feature request to our back end team. Please be noted that we cannot assure you that this feature will be implemented as it completely depends upon the feasibility and priority of our back end team. We will get back to you there is any update on this.

    Thank you!

    Yes that is correct.

    If you google i it is quite a common request. You already have Drop down to a Single output, which works, and in this case I want the reverse.

    That's fine - I understand new feature delays, or whether or not it is possible. Heres hoping!

    Support - it is now over a year and although I don't expect Jotform to always code all requests, there are a few here that want it.

    Can we ask if it is even in a queue to be implemented, or its never going to happen?
