    Is there an option to choose fields per their field ID, instead of label in conditions?

    Asked by zphibok on May 02, 2015 at 10:56 PM

    I am creating a membership form with multiple hidden sections representing populating their membership rosters that will allow the user to "add another member".  In trying to create the conditional fields it's kind of hard to navigate using the field label since they all have the same labels.  ALSO, I've noticed that copying the conditions in place for fields in the section is hard to sort out since they're also based on field label. 

    I was wondering if there's a setting somewhere that will allow me to use field ids, or something.

    Unfortunately that is not possible at this time, only on occasions would the ID be shown and that is if there is no label.

    I believe that this would be useful, or even further more if the ID and label were shown (per selection).

    For example, to sort by labels (default):

    To sort by Field Tag

    Field ID

    Label and Tag combined

    I believe that this is what you are after so I will raise this as a feature request and if it becomes possible, you will be notified about it through this thread.
