    Hi, the form I have made with 7 numbered questions..

     

    https://www.jotform.com//?formID=62642272887465#

     

    I have used conditional logic to show/hide fields based upon responses to certain questions. The questions that show based upon the logic are labelled 2a / 3a / 4a / 4b

    I have also used conditional logic to hide all questions 2 through 7 if in question 1 the option '0' is selected.

    However, if any other option other than '0' is selected in question 1 then all hidden fields are displayed for all the other questions? This should happen should it? How would I skip 6 questions based on one response without showing all other hidden question?

    To see replicate the issue open the form and you'll see question 2a is hidden. Now in question #1 click '0' for the answer - you will see all questions skipped leaving the submit button.

    Now uncheck '0' and instead check '1'. Now all conditional fields are displayed including 2a - I dont have a logic programmed for that?

    Please advise, thank you.

    Hey John, conditions automatically do the other side of itself when you use the SHOW/HIDE condition. This means that if your setup is like this:

    IF thisField is FILLED THEN HIDE field1, field2, field3

    Then the form will automatically SHOW field1, field2, field3 if thisField is NOT FILLED

    Since you have this condition:

    It will automatically show all those hidden fields if 1. SALES CHANNELS IS NOT EQUAL TO 0

    (and this is how it works right now on your form)

    For us to better assist you, we need to further understand your workflow/logic on how you want your form to behave. For starters, I recommend you read our guide on Conditional Logic as it will greatly help you along the way: Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic 

    Here are 3 more related guides that will be very helpful as you start building your conditions:

    Just give us a rough overview of how it should work and we can help you setup the conditions.
