    I don't understand how Conflicting conditions are resolved?

    Asked by refurl on June 26, 2016 at 02:38 PM

    Condition 1: If Q1 is empty OR Q1 is Filled, HIDE Q2... Q9 and HIDE submit

    Condition 2: IF Q1 = Yes, Show Q2

    Condition 3: If Q1 = No, Show Q5


    Only Q1 displays, regardless of the answer selected.  Please explain Conflict Resolution as this seems straightforward.


    My Goal is to add one question at a time from two sets of questions: Q2-Q4, or Q5-Q9, without displaying all questions simultaneously.  I am not getting even the first step to work properly.

    Could you please give us more information about what you mean with "how conflicting conditions are resolved"?

    First condition will not work since you have a condition that will hide fields if either of conditions is true.

    You need to set a condition that will show a field when selected, I would suggest putting condition 1 to be:

    If Q1 is empty, HIDE Q2... Q9 and HIDE submit

    If you want to add questions one by one after that you can just chain conditions. 

    For example:

    if Q2 is filled SHOW Q3 

    if Q3 is filled SHOW Q4

    if Q4 is filled SHOW Q5 ....

    And that will show the fields one by one when you fill the answers.

    You can read more about conditional logic here.


    Let us know if you need more information.
