    Hi there,

    Unfortunately, there is no "Ordered by" option on the new "Conditions" GUI, only the "Showing conditions for" option is available.

    Please, see it from the below:


    For further assistance, please do let us know.

    Hi Mert / JotForm team

    I discovered something when I duplicated a checkbox field and also ticked the duplicate conditions option (fig. 1). 

    Original Form - When you preview it after saving in the new GUI, only 1 checkbox field will be triggered. (this happens even though I made sure to check duplicate conditions). 
    * Outcome for Original Form in fig. 2.

    Cloned Form - But when I loaded the old GUI (with the suffix /?old) and selected Ordered by: Action field (fig. 3), saved then previewed, all 3 checkbox fields are triggered simultaneously.
    (no other setting where changed in this clone - except for the Ordered by: Action field)
    * Outcome for Cloned Form in fig. 4.

    I don't know why this happens but this is the exact desired outcome I was expecting to see in the new GUI - but could not achieve. And this is also the reason why I asked if the Order by option is available in the new GUI - because only after loading the old GUI and selecting the Ordered by: Action field will the conditions be executed properly. 

    Is there a way to activate the conditions for all 3 checkbox fields in the new GUI? If this cannot be achieved in the New GUI, may I ask for a Feature Request to add the Order By function in the new GUI.

    Hoping for some enlightenment.

    The duplicate functions appear to be working in my test form.  I believe the issue is with overlapping conditions when the new list is created.  Which is why the "Order By" function works.  I can forward a feature request to our developers to see if this is something they can add.  Since I cannot say if or what the feature would be added to the new UI, if the old UI works I would recommend to continue using it.
