    Show field if TWO options are checked

    Asked by caustin on October 20, 2015 at 12:07 PM


    I am working on a form in which I would like a field to show/hide if two or more options are checked.  The conditional logic works when I select one option, but I still want to the form to hide the subsequent question until at least two options have been checked.

    We've got a sample of the form located on our testing server at:



    Thanks for the help!

    Hi caustin.

    In the clone I made, the result was achieved by using a Form Calculation (which is made visible in this example) and using the count() function to count how many boxes are checked. Then the field (If your auction has multiple ...) will only appear if the boxes checked are 2 or more. Otherwise, it will not show.

    Thank you very much for your kind contribution, Paul.

    You can achieve your requirement, caustin, in the way that our friendly user Paul has so kindly provided.

    I would just like to add in case that you need these clarifications, that the conditional logic for Show/Hide rule is then based on the calculation field, as shown in the image below taken from Paul's form:

    The Form Calculation looks as follows, and you can add math functions such as count() by using the triple-dot button (...) in the Form Calculation, as marked in the image below:

    If you need any assistance in setting it up, caustin, please do let us know and we will be happy to help. And thank you again, Paul.
