    How to avoid filling fields not relevant to the user

    Asked by thedoor on October 08, 2015 at 04:00 PM

    Hi,

    I am doing a employee performance review. The form, once submitted by employees, will be sent to supervisors via the edit submission link. Each of them needs to fill out their lines. However, when I am testing the form, sometimes I would click on the wrong line. Say I was an employee doing my own review, I accidentally clicked on my supervisor's line. I cannot cancel that. Then my supervisor might get confused when he sees this review. Is there any ways to remove that?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Are you referring to this fields when accidentally filled? You can actually remove it's value before submitting the form.

    Or, I suggest to make these fields hidden by default so it is not seen on the form. Simply place a check box above it and write something like "I am a Supervisor", then once this is mark checked, the following relevant fields would appear below it. You can achieve this by creating Show/Hide Condition.

    Example:

    1. Add a check box field with "Yes" option.

    2. Then create a condition by following these visual steps and the example condition below.

    a. Click Conditions on the top toolbar.

    b. Select Show/Hide A Field

    c. Create a condition like this.

    If you need further clarifications, let us know.
