Request to add a 'Show/Hide a Page' conditionAsked by mcgrathm on April 03, 2012 at 01:47 PM
I am a Realtor using JotForms primarily for various stages of the lead conversion to clients. I am trying to create one form that Home Selling prospects will use to request a consultation that can be used at any stage of their sales preparation process and whether or not we have already consutlted with them before.
Some types of consultations require personal information including contact, plans, goals, etc, which I don't want them to fill out if they have already filled out once before and some require property information which they may fill out or upload a feature sheet or old MLS sheet, etc. There are various conditions built in already depending on their plans and property type single fam detached/condo/multi unit.
The process would be simplified if I could use a Show/Hide for a page vs a skip to page or even condition variable with multiple THEN responses to a single IF condition. Those 2 upgrades would solve a few of my headaches right now.
Any idea if either or both are on the upgrade list and any kind of an eta?
Thank you for contacting us.
Could you please explain why the Skip to a page condition does not work for you? How are you going to use Show/Hide a page condition? We need to understand that before forwarding feature request to our Development Team.
I would like to inform you that feature request about conditions with multiple THEN is already added to our To Do list, but unfortunately, we can not provide any ETA at this time. I have also added your vote for multiple THEN conditions.
Ultimately the flow of the form would be best by asking multiple condition qualifying questions up front which would then set up the remainder of the form. With the current set up that would put multiple potential skip functions on one Next click.
Primary question groupings are:
Full Contact Informtion, Goal Information, Mortgage Qualification Request Questions, and Full Property Data
Not all prospects would need to fill out all information.
So on the first page I would be asking if we have previously consulted with them... if yes then skip or Not Show Page with full contact information, which we already have in our files, and just take a primary contact name. Another Question on page 1 would be what type of consultation are they requesting. That would then determine if we need property data from them. Another question on the first page would be if they plan to buy another home and if they have been preapproved for a mortgage. That would then Show another page for mortgage prequalification questions.
It seems as though with the "skip to page" condition I need to interject more smaller pages in between the big ones with the qualifying questions to limit the amout of skip conditions on 1 Next click.
Thank you for detailed explanation.
I have forwarded a feature request ticket to our Development Team.
We will update this thread once we get any more information for you.
