    How to require a field based on a selection.

    Asked by lavin on June 20, 2016 at 10:21 PM

    1) How do i condition a form to change the details that are required to be entered when a dropdown of three options comes up. ( For example once you click the drop down there are 3 options X,Y and Z. Each has different informations which needs to be filled. )


    2) How do i set up a appointment form to block the date once i have reached a specified target number of ppl. ( I.e say on 26/06/2016 I have 2 slots for appointment and each slots can take 8 ppl. Once I have reached the target of 8 ppl per slot how do i condition the logic to automatically give them the next best/available date.)


    3) Is there any way I can specify the type of document they are uploading into the form. I.e say the form has to xxx details in it and only then they would be able to upload it.
