So Ihave a client who has a buncg of services that she offers...so she wants to set up on the contact form check boxes so that interested parties can check all that apply....however there are certain services that come with sub services if you will...she doesnt want the subservices to show unless they click on the main services that comes with the subs? Does that make sense? I cant figure out whether or not we are able to to di this with jotform...any help would be appreciated.

This is perfectly possible with Conditional Logic feature. You can show or hide questions depending on the choice a user chooses.
Here are some examples:

Thank you for the answer. However I am now haveing a hardtime getting it to work. More than likely its user error :)
Ok so the question on my form is this:
I would like to (check all that apply):
Creative Writing Workshop
What i want to do is when some checks the Creative Writing Workshop option that these three options appear and allows them to choose one of these options:
design your own
tell your friends
For the life of me I cant figure this out and was curious if this possoble to do and if so how?

1. Create all questions and options on the form. These should be on a separate question:
design your own
tell your friends
2. Setup a condition for each checkbox question so that they are only shown if the "Creative Writing Workshop" option is selected.
Give it a try and if it does not work let me know form ID of this form and I will take a look.

I do have one additional question regarding this topic...what if we needed to do this multiple times? For example:
When you choose "Dog C" it shows another list of options:
When you choose say Purple it opens up yet another list?
is this possible? I have been trying to do this but when i do I get a script error and it freezes my computer...any help?
- JotForm FounderaytekinAnswered on September 23, 2010 at 12:13 PM
Yes, it should be possible. What is the URL of this form that freezes when you do this?

You had many conditions like this:
If "question 1" equals to "something"
Show "question 1" question
They both do not make sense and also create an infinite loop. That's why your form was not being able to open by browser.
What you can do is add one single condition at a time and try the form on a separate browser every time. This way, if you add something that causes such loop you can delete that condition.

Thank you!...i actually got that form wo rok now with one exception. When I preview the form I dont get any type of errors nor does my computer freeze up. However, when I put the code into my site I get this error message:
An error has occurred in the script on this page.
Error: Object required
Then it asks if I want to contiue running the scripts on this page?
It doesnt freeze anything up but it asks this question and I am not sure why? But like I said when I preview it in jotform its fine...the jotform URL is http://www.jotform.com/form/2492352200

This is probably also caused by the conditions. Try deleting the new conditions you added recently and see if it fixes it.
