    Condtitions: If "other" option from checkbox field is used from a field in a condition, it gets deleted

    Asked by 1thomh1 on October 21, 2015 at 12:13 PM
    I've also noticed that references to the 'other' box used in the conditions are deleting themselves and when you go back in the box is showing as 'please select'. I tried making a condition whereby if 'other' is selected it will hide everyhting BUT a new field, but the same issue persisted and the condition removed the reference to the 'other' field when I webnt back into it. Please see atatched image of condition when Iw ent back in.

    I did some testing and I am able to reproduce the issue with "other" option used in conditions not working properly.  I can use the option in the conditional statement:

    However, the condition does not function and when it is edited, the "other" option is immediately removed from the conditional statement:

    I will forward this to our developers to have a look.  We will update you here as soon as we have any updates.

    In the mean time, if you load your form in the form builder, then reload the page using:


    You can load the old interface and the conditions should work properly from there.

    Hi David,

    I cannot reproduce this bug. It seems that this was already fixed.
