    Duplicated fields and conditions not working properly.

    Hi, 

    I am rearranging a previously made form of mine in order to make it usable for another group. This form has many conditions and is very long. What I am doing is making sure the beginning part of the form is working perfectly and then trying to duplicate the fields (and conditions attached to those fields) for the second, third, fourth and fifth parts of the form (days 1 - 5). When I try duplicating the field with the conditions it seems to duplicate the conditions multiple times and then when I test the form, the conditions do not even work for the duplicated fields. I need to do this multiple times within the form but have not gotten to do it successfully once. 

    I do continue to re-write the conditions that have been duplicated to try to get them to work, but with no luck. This is the most intricate form I have created, very tedious yet with no reward of a working product. There may be something I am missing, it is hard to write out all the details of what I am experiencing in a way that makes sense. Is there anyone who can help me?

    I have even tried duplicating the fields without the conditions and writing separate conditions for each duplicated field one by one, but it still does not work properly.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I think that the duplicate conditions option will not be able to predict required conditional updates.

    In case you need to show the day sections based on the Drop Down selection, you can try the following format.

    How many days - Equal to - 1
    Show Multiple - Day 1 section fields

    How many days - Equal to - 2
    Show Multiple - Day 1 and 2 section fields

    How many days - Equal to - 3
    Show Multiple - Day 1, 2 and 3 section fields

    etc.

    Alternatively, this is possible to use form collapse fields in combination with conditions.

    Show or Hide multiple fields at once using form collapse tool
