    Conditional formula saves, then changes on its own

    Asked by Jerole on January 22, 2016 at 09:03 PM

    I place a formula to read the value in one field and copy it into another.

    After I hit SAVE it reads correctly in the all Conditional Formulas Window.

    I test it, it does not work.

    I go back to find a field was replaced. Tried a million times, deleted the fields and tried again.

    I have other formulas to remove fields based on a check box, and they work.

    This seems way simpler. Name in a field, copy to another field.

    I test your jotform http://www.jotform.us/form/60204573468153 and I can see the latest saved Conditions were working as intended on the form already.

    You can view my test here

    Please let us know if the issue remains.

    One thing I can tell you also about the save issue... your browser cache was just probably not clearing properly since the form had its saving cache turned ON.

    What you can try is to disable first the Autofill option while you are updating the form... then, just turned it ON last after accomplishing the modification you want. Then, saved the form.

    Let us know if issue remains.
