    Hi,

     

    For example, I have a field called choice1 with 3 options. Another field called choice2 with the same 3 options.  If in field "choice1" the user takes "option1" this choice have to be hidden in "choice2".

    I hope this makes it clear.

    If not I will make an example.

     

    Thanks.

    Hello ISBT,

    Unfortunately it is not possible to achieve your requirement. Please be noted that it is currently not possible to dynamically add / remove options from form fields (checkbox/radio button / dropdown).

    I would suggest you to please add multiple form fields with desired options. Then you can add conditions in your form to show / hide the appropriate form fields based on which option is selected. 

    Example: Add field "choice 1" with three option 1 / 2 / 3.

    Add 3 different fields for "choice 2".  In all the three fields, one option either 1 /2/3 will not be there.

    Add condition to show the appropriate choice 2 field based on the selection of choice 1.

    Hope this answers your question.

    Do get back to us if you have any question.

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    I already do it like that for the moment, but I hoped there was a shortcut trying to hide the options. :-)

     

    Thanks for the great support !
