    Same conditon for multiple fields

    Asked by grisu59 on November 19, 2011 at 06:46 AM

    When you choose the condition SHOW or HIDE A FIELD

    Now the condition can be added only to one field (with one ore more conditions)

     

    Sometime is necessary to add the same condition to more than one field

    Do you think that will be possible add more than 1 field to the condition SHOW/HIDE FIELD?

    Hi grisu59,

    Such a form will have unpredicatble results because the conditions will conflict each other. We would recommend against such practice for best results.

    Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you for choosing JotForm!

    This question is addressed here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/48617-How-to-show-hide-multiple-fields-at-once as well.

     

    I believe it's highly feasible and shouldn't be very difficult at all based on the current condition setup. Basically we have mutiple ANY or ALL conditions leading to one result now; and what would save us many man-hours would be to have multiple actions in the result category.

    If A and/or B meet, then hide fields C, D, and E.

     

    Let me know if there's a logic not met, or perhaps a situation in which this would kill the entire form. I know, however, in Spreadsheets, it just gives an error if the logic isn't met. I wouldn't mind an error. I'd just try to fix it :-)

    Hiding multiple fields based on a single conditional response can now be made possible by including those fields in a form collapse section.

    Here's a guide that has the information you need:
