    I wish to make a second field required if first field is filled

    Asked by mikeBWD on August 09, 2016 at 11:41 AM

    I wish to make a second field required if its field is entered so if anything is in A then complete B.

    Is this the form you are working on http://www.jotformeu.com/form/40204572065345

    I have inspected conditions inside of that form and you have two Enable/require field conditions, that are the same, for field Specimen 2.

    If you want to do the same for Specimen 3 and Specimen 4, you will need to set conditions for those fields as well. You can also use Require Multiple option. On my cloned form I have set conditions for fields Specimen 3 and Specimen 4.

    Here is my form: https://form.jotform.com/62215372222950 

    Feel free to test it and clone it

    I also noticed that you have text field on your form where you are notifying your users to resubmit your form if they have more items. 

    We have a widget that allows users to dynamically add more rows with same fields. This widget is Configurable list widget. 

    How to Set Up the Configurable List Widget

    With this widget you users would be able to add more that 4 items on a single form. 

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/62215294057959 

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
