    Prevent Submit if Address State Contains/Equal to

    Asked by NGHS on December 04, 2015 at 11:53 AM

    Hello! I need to limit form submissions to people with addresses within the state of Georgia, USA. I wanted to hide the submit button if the State field contained anything other than "GA" or "Georgia". I can't seem to do this. Thanks for the guidance!

    If you are referring to the State dropdown from Address section, unfortunately, we cannot setup conditions based on it.

    You may consider adding the address fields manually (e.g. with Text Boxes and Dropdown).

    Then, setup your conditions based on the State field. Is this something that might work in your case?

    I appreciate your feedback and hep, Mike. I wanted to avoid this because we have a lot of submissions already, and I do not want to loose the submission data in JotForm by replacing the address field with a handful of new separate fields. I'll try to approach a different way. Thanks!

    I can confirm what my colleague says, there is no way to use the Address field and get in a condition only the State field, the only way is using the Address as separate fields.

    Please, if you need more help or have more questions, feel free to contact us , we will be glad to assist you.
