    can I require (at least) one of three fields?

    Asked by ConsumerLawProject on January 08, 2016 at 08:54 PM


    I need users to tick at least one choice, but have to split the choices among three different items. I can see how to do "if X is empty then require Y," but is there a way to accomplish the same idea among three items? Users need to be able to pick choices in all three categories if they want.

    I do need the three items separately because I need them in different columns in the resulting spreadsheet, unless there's a workaround for that.

    Thanks so much!

    What you can do is create a SHOW/HIDE condition. If user did not select any option in these section, you can hide the submit button. Once they have selected a option, you may show the submit.

    You may clone the form, so you may analyze and review it if you like.
