    Asked on February 07, 2016 at 07:42 AM

    20 questions, 20 possible answers - hidden answers that when a user checks the yes check box the answer will appear. i also need the form along with the "answers" to be mailed to me and the user too, cause it will contain instructions based on the answers he gave.

    Is your service right for me/?


    thanks a lot,

    First, register a free account at using your email address, since your form is currently hosted on a guest account. Please note that a guest account relies on browsers cache and cookies, whatever happens to it, you form may get lost or purge.

    On regards of your question, it is possible to show/hide a field based on another field's input or selection, please check this guide:

    Thank you very much, im sure your platform can show\hide fields and make email notifications, my main concern is about autoreply to the user and myself containing the "answers" , the fields that were exposed when a few of the YES checkboxes were checked. 

    this are the instructions for the user, based on his selections.

    If you want to create an autoresponder it is also possible with JotForm.

    thanks again, but thats not what i asked... am i being unclear? i will create my forms and acount once i know what i ask for is possible, i don't want to create everything and find it cant.

    so i'll rephrase -

    can the autoresponder send the form with the answers - the answers are hidden fields that show when the user selects the yes checkbox. 

    if the autoresponder can do that. its a must for me, those answers are the instructions for a customer.

    thanks again

    To be more specific I've created a sample form with show/hide conditions.

    On that form, it will show sample text field if user choose one option for test auto field.

    Here is how to do this:

    Here is how it works:

    After that, I've created an autoresponder and sent a test submission. 

    Here is the result:
