    Asked by chrisgrouge on June 17, 2016 at 01:13 PM

    Is it possible to have one IF conditional complete multiple actions?

    For instance if textbox1 = Client

    Calculate textbox2 & calculate textbox3

    I'm unable to find any answers through the support forum for this.

    Yes, it is possible to work with calculations based on conditions. Example: https://www.jotform.com/help/268-How-to-Insert-Text-or-Mathematical-Calculation-into-a-Field-Using-Conditional-Logic

    But is there a way to create one rule that calculates multiple fields? I am looking for a form that allows me to type in one field then multiple fields auto populate using conditional rules.

    I apologize but I am not sure if I am understanding what you are saying above correctly or not.

    Do you mean you want to have a calculated condition which then populates into multiple fields? 

    Or do you mean something else?

    Can you provide us with a verbal example of what it is you are trying to do with calculated multiple fields and this way we can try to assist you more appropriately with a possible solution if any.

    Here's an example:

    I have three text fields: First Name, Last Name, Company

    Can I create one rule that says "If first name equals John, Then type in Green in the last name field and IT Consulting, LLC. in the company field"

    I hope this makes sense.

    Thank you in advance!
