    checkbox revealing dropdown to form part of calculation

    Asked by thebtrain on August 16, 2015 at 08:48 AM

    Hi - not sure if this is possible but thought I'd ask anyway.

    I have a checkbox section on my form where clients can select items to purchase and have the calculations working properly so far, but I only want a certain dropdown option to be available once a certain checkbox is selected.

    eg. checkbox selections

    a) $100

    b) $200

    c) $300

    if b) is selected then I need a dropdown menu to appear to purchase a further number of this item (say 1-10) at a discounted rate, say $150, then this figure (number of items * discounted price) to form part of the calculation.

    I understand I'll have to use conditionals to reveal the dropdown but not sure if it's possible to have this working smoothly.

    Any advice very welcome.

    Jotform is an awesome product BTW.

    Yes, this is possible. You would be using Conditional Logic to Show a field based on user selections.

    To set it up, you need to go to Setup & Embed > Conditions, select Show / Hide a form field, and click Next.

    In the popup that appears, select If the field is equal to its desired option, Show that dropdown which should be specific to this option.

    You can set the same for other options as well:

    You can check a demo of these conditions already set up here:

    You can also clone it into your account for a closer look. Please let us know if you need further assistance.
