    How to skip required fields to move to second page

    Asked by plcwaldorf on April 20, 2016 at 11:42 AM

    I have a registration form that will be used for two purposes:  1.  To register a child for an event including all the pertinent information.  2.  Register volunteers to help with the event.  I have setup a page break between the child registration section and the volunteer registration, and want to ask at the top of the form if they are registering a child or volunteering.  If they select volunteering I want to skip all of the child registration related questions, go to page 2 where they can complete the volunteer information.  If they go to page 2 only, will the form still insist that the fields marked "required" on page 1 be completed?  If they select "register a child" I want them to be able to just continue on down through the form.

    Hope that's not too confusing. link to form below

    Thank you,

    After reviewing your form I made some small changes:

    First I removed the Page you inserted to enter the Volunteer information and replaced it with the FORM COLLAPSE. I placed 3 of this fields. One right above the child's information, the second where the Volunteer information starts and the last was right before the submit button.

    In each collapse I made the modified the properties to view as below

    Having the collapse fields, make it easy to to use the show/hide condition. Instead of selecting various fields, you just require to select the collapse field when the user select an option.

    Depending on the selection on that particular group of fields will be displayed.

    If you would like, you make review and clone the form I modified:

    If you prefer having two pages in your form, you may always change the properties of any field using the ENABLE/REQUIRE FIELD condition. you may select a single or group of fields in which you can make un-required or required.
