    How to display fields based on a value entered on the form?

    Asked by Marc-Henri Faure  on November 09, 2015 at 01:22 PM


    We are non 4 profit org. We help small companies have success in our community. We have to ask companies wether they are recruiting currently.


    I need one company to be able to fill up the begining of the survey (name of the company...)

    then be asked : "how many positions/jobs do you currently offer ?" (be it 1 or 2 or 3, ... 40!)

    and then the rest of the survey should be filled up as many times as the answer (be it 40!)

    Is it managable using jotform ?

    I understand that you want to display the number of positions/jobs information based on the number selected in the beginning of the survey. This can be achieved by setting up some conditions using Show/Hide field. 

    It is possible to have as many fields as you can on a form. However, please be noted that having too many number of fields on a single form might crash the browser to load due to system resources issue. I've tried creating a demo form for you. Please see if that works for you.


    You may clone the form to your account to see how the conditions are setup. Let us know if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    I tried this with my form. If I enter "1", the condition works - the first field appears. However, if I enter any number higher than one, the first field does not appear, but all the other selected fields do.

    I copied the conditions in the example for exactly. What am I doing wrong?

    Thank you.

    I have just reviewed your form and was able to view the fields properly.
