    How do I duplicate a batch of questions, based on the numeric answer of 1 leading question?

    Asked by adevries on July 06, 2016 at 01:34 PM

    I would like my form to duplicate a batch of questions, based on how the numeric answer of a single leading question.

    The question is: Total number of entrances/exits

    If the response is 1, than I want a single batch of the related questions.

     

    However, sometimes the person might answer 5, in which case I will want to see 5 batches of the related questions appear.

     

    I've looked through the conditions, and haven't found the right option quite yet.

     

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    To achieve this first you will have to duplicate fields that you want to be shown. Inside of this guide you can find how to do it: https://www.jotform.com/help/242-How-to-manage-multiple-fields 

    Then you will need to set conditions to show specific fields based on number that was entered.

    Other possible solution will be to use Configurable list widget. This way your users will be able to dynamically add more fields.
