    Check Box Based Form Conditions

    Asked by onepoint on January 30, 2012 at 02:20 PM

    I would like our form to skip over individual pages based on the checkbox selection. The problem I am running into is that each checkbox has an individual page associated with it.

    "Skipping" a page based on selection does not function properly if more than one field is selected, however that will most commonly be the case.

    Plan B, I tried to create "show/hide" conditions for each and ever field on the respective pages based on the answer. The problem I then ran into was hitting a blank page rather than skipping to the next.

    Any ideas for a work around?

    Using skip to page conditions for your goal is possible, but will be cumbersome to implement. Since you have 4 options in your checkbox, 4 different pages corresponding to each option, and you allow multiple options to be selected, it will take a whole load of conditions with multiple rules to execute this properly.

    The easiest way around this is to consolidate all the "room" pages in a single page, then use show/hide conditions to show the fields only if the appropriate checkbox option is selected.
