    I need help with the conditions of my form

    Asked by regional on May 21, 2015 at 11:02 AM


    We have a very long and quite complex form entitled "EC Communities Verification Submittal Form" As you can see there are conditions set that when a certain option is selected from the initial drop down menu, only selections within that category are available. This is for submittals to a green building program, so for instance, if the submitter selects "site selection" in the drop down, then only site selection options should be available. The problem is that, when any selection other than 'site selection' is listed in the drop down (for instance, water management) the categories available are only site selection. So basically no matter what is selected in the drop down, site selection category is what shows up. I reviewed the conditions and all seem to be in line with what we want. Its a very long form and I really dont want to re build it. Is there anything you can see that would be causing this error?

    Thanks so much!

    After checking your form, I believe that the issue could be happening because of the conditions highlighted below.

    Basically, you're saying that if the field is empty then it should be hidden. But all the fields in your form are empty by default which will make them hidden when the form is loaded and thus they cannot be filled.

    So, I suggest you to remove this conditions since the radio buttons will be shown/hidden depending on the selection made in the drop-down.

    Let us know if this helps.
