    Control number of additional pages according to dropdown menu

    Asked by mandraek on June 01, 2015 at 12:54 PM

    Hi, I wanted a solution to providing pages on answer to a dropdown menu

    It is a booking form, but the client can book in 1-4 cats, currently they have to leave a blank page(s) if they only have one cat to board (3 pages are left blank)

    I wondered if there was a way to provide the correct amount of pages according to the number of cats they choose to board (from drop down menu)

     

    Many thanks for an excellent form solution, so far it has been a delight to use

    Hi,

    This is indeed possible.  Rather than using pages, you could have form collapses that are conditionally shown based on a selection made in a dropdown.  In the case of your form, the number of cats.

    Replace your page breaks with form collapses and set them up as such:

    Add in a dropdown for selecting the number of cats, then setup conditions to show the appropriate form collapses based on the dropdown selection:

    With all the conditions it would look like this:

    This is the resulting form:

    You can clone it to see the setup:

    You are very welcome, we are here to help.  I just noticed that in my example I added a new dropdown for the number of cats.  I didn't notice you already had one.  You can do the same setup but use your current dropdown if you would like.

    If there is anything else we can help you with or if you have any trouble getting this set up, just let us know.
