    How to show only certain questions depending what the user enters?

    Asked by U_S_SS on April 04, 2015 at 07:02 AM

    I am using the following application form i created:


    This is a soccer application form, however i want to be able to use the same form for Golf and Tennis applications. However not all the questions in the current form are universal for all 3 sports.

    Therefore is there a way of having an option at the beginning of the form, asking the user which sport they are applying for, then only the questions applicable to that sport are displayed? Or will i just have to create 3 separate forms (Golf, Tennis and Soccer) then have 3 separate links to them on my website?

    If you want to use a single form for the 3 sports you can use conditional logic to show/hide fields depending on the selected sport. You would need to add a field (I suggest you to use a radio button field) in order to allow your users to let you know which sport they are applying to and then you can show the corresponding questions.

    I suggest you to also check the following guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/196-Hide-or-Show-Multiple-Fields-at-Once
