    Conditional Logic and Dropdowns

    Asked by mbvtleadgen on November 24, 2015 at 10:00 AM

    Hello,

    I have created a new form (The URL has been included below).

    I currently have a field which contains a dropdown, this is the first field and it's called Industry.

    Based on the choice the user makes on the Industry dropdown field I would like to update the value of the next dropdown field (Occupation) - by adding another option available, e.g. All workers.

    On the other hand, if a user selects "Armed Forces" I would also like the update the Occupation dropdown but this time with different values, i.e. Navy, Airforce, Soldier.

    Is the above possible? If so could you send the instructions in order to achieve what I am setting out for?

    (I tried using your conditional logic option but didn't have any success with it).

    Many thanks.

    Best,

    Prashant

    Thank you for contacting us. 

    Unfortunately it is not possible to to pass values from one dropdown field to other dropdown field. Values can only be passed to text fields from dropdown field. 

    Possible workaround would be to create two "Occupation" dropdown fields with different values and then use conditional logic to hide/show fields based on selection in Industry field. 

    I have made demo form and I have set my conditions like this. 

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/53274369447970?

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
