    I am trying to create a condition to prevent a user ranking multiple fields the same amount.

    Asked by bakerwebacademy on March 25, 2016 at 12:40 AM




    I am creating a survey for parents and community members to rank which of three calendars they would like to see for the school next year. I have created a condition where if they select the same value on questions 1, 2 or 3, with 1 being the best and 3 being the worst, then the submit button is visible and a text field becomes visible saying you can not rank multiple calendars the same amount. 

    The problem that I am discovering is that if the first value on the ranking (1 "worst") is selected on any of the calendars then the submit button is hidden and the error text becomes visible. It does not matter if all three #2's or all three #3's ("best") are selected the necessary error text does not populate... Only if a single #1 "worst" is chosen. 


    Apparently my logic is incorrect or a bug. 


    Thanks for your help

    I tested your form and couldn't reproduce the problem. The form seems to be working as expected.


    Have you managed to resolve the problem in the meantime?
