How can I make specialized options based on choice selection?Asked by TischSpecialAdmissions on May 20, 2015 at 10:14 AM
Hello! I'm using your services to create a confirmation form for a university program. I need to be able to have two signature options - one that includes a deposit for non-students, and one that does not require a deposit for current students. For example, I'd like to have the dropdown question "Are you a current student?" With answers either "Yes" or "No," Where "Yes" sends them to the next page of the survey which requires a signature, and "No" sends them to the next page of the survey which requires signature and deposit. Is there a way to do this using your system? Thanks in advance!
That's possible using our conditional logic, where you can set rules and perform actions based on user input. Here's a guide to learn more about it: http://www.jotform.com/help/57-Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic.
In your case, I would advise creating 3 forms.
Form 1 will be the question if the user is a current student or not.
Form 2 will be the form where the user is a current student and we'll only get the signature.
Form 3 will be the form where the user is not a current student and needs to do a deposit. I'm guessing you'll ask payment for your users, you can check this guide on how to create an order form by integrating payment methods that we support.
This is how the flow of my forms will work. I will redirect the user from Form 1 to either Form 2 or Form 3 depending on the selection he/she made.
For the signatures, you can check our widgets for that, here's a list of e-signatures that you can use: http://widgets.jotform.com/search/signature. To add a widget in a form, you can check this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/252-How-to-Add-a-Widget-to-your-Form.
