    Clear a field on hide setting doesn't affect the Star Rating fields

    Asked by sjpd on June 04, 2015 at 05:59 PM

    I have a survey that has two alternate sets of survey questions for Teachers and Principals.  If the user selects the radio button for Teacher, and selects star ratings for the questions, and then selects the radio button to Principal, I'd like the now hidden star files to revert to deselected.

    This is what I expected would happen when I set the advanced preferences setting to clear fields when hidden.  But it doesn't work.


    What am I doing wrong?  Is there a way to intialize field values when the field toggles from visible to hidden?
