    Is there some sort of a wildcard feature that I can use to define conditional logic?

    Asked by nathanc_martin on January 07, 2016 at 12:27 PM

    For example, say I want to display a field if the value of another field has specific characters in the second and third position, but I don't care what character is in the first position.

    Often times, an asterisk is used for this.

    Something like STARTS WITH "*BC" would ignore the first character and only look to match "BC" in the second and third position.

    We do not currently have a character that can be used as a wildcard in conditions.  The conditions themselves have starts with, ends with and contains for possible checks.  However, checking for characters in a specific position is not currently possible.
