    Hello,

    Is there a way to require identical drop-down fields to require a different choice?

    For example:

    Drop-down choices:
    A
    B
    C

    1. User chooses: A

    2. User can now only choose B or C (User chooses C)

    3. User can now only choose B

    The options don't need to disappear from the other forms, just each number would require a different choice.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

     

    If I understand your concern correctly, you want to have a validation where user cannot select the same choices. If so, you can manually setup this using conditions. Here is a sample clone form - https://form.jotformpro.com/53338377334965? that you can check. You can clone the form so you can have a closer look on the setup. 

     

    Do let us know if you need further assistance.
    Regards.

    Thanks Chriistian,

    That's exactly correct. If I needed to make 28 numbers and 28 options, it looks like that would be a lot of conditions? Looks like those may not be clonable when I copied #3 to make #4?

    Hi,

     

    Yes, having a large number of fields to be validate will require a number of condition. Currently, this is the only way to setup the logic you wanted. I can help you set it up with 28 numbers and options. I will create a demo form that you can check. I will get back to you once I have set it up properly. Regarding on the cloning/duplicating field, unfortunately, when you clone a field in your form it will not clone the condition setup for the field.

    Hi,

     

    You can check this demo form that I have created with 28 numbers and option - https://form.jotform.com/53338377334965?. You can clone the form to have a closer look on the setup. I have optimized the form so it will not contain a lot of condition.

    Hi Christian,

    I had one quick question. When the form is published, there is an "Option" box at the bottom that I didn't expect would be there. Do you know what's causing this?

    It has radio buttons that say:

    Option 1

    Option 2

    Option 3

    That field is a widget that is in your form:

    Deleting that field will remove it when the form is published.
