    Conditional logic not working to copy field value to another

    Asked by tamsyn on April 12, 2016 at 05:55 PM

    Hello there!

    In my form "2016 Field Day Agreement," I'm having trouble getting my field "Who is Your PFI Contact for this Event?" to pre-populate the text field at the bottom ("If you have any questions about this agreement ...").

    I have set up the condition so that it's supposed to update the bottom field if the top field is equal to each of the names listed (I created a condition for each person to copy the field value from the top field to the bottom field).

    However, all that ever appears in the bottom field is a "0" (zero).

    I first tried setting up just one condition (If the top field "is filled" then copy that value) -- and that also produced a zero, so I assumed I needed to create an "If field equals" condition.... 


    Second question:

    How can I customize the border of the check box at the very bottom of the form? I have tried to see if there's a custom CSS label for just the box itself, and can't seem to locate that. In the designer, there is no option for the specific box I selected to change the border. Changing the color only changes the color of the checkmark that appears.

    Thanks very much!

    I suggest reviewing also this user guide: How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value

    I checked the Conditions you did on your form https://www.jotform.com/60996739502164 and I see there is a mistake in the configuration.

    Let me check for the correct configuration. I'll get back to your shortly.

    It work like this:

    I have Assign value in the Dropdown

    I setup the copy field value Condition like this:


    and I require only 1 Condition to accomplish what I need.


    Hope this help. Let us know if you encounter difficulty applying this on your form.
