    Creating a form that shows lots or results from a previous choice

    Asked by CTCKA on April 27, 2012 at 07:55 AM

    I am trying to create a form to make it easier for students to find results from a employment sector.

    I know you can do it using 'Conditions' and hiding and showing results but I have hundreds of work placements I need to add in.

    For example, someone chooses LAW from a dropdown menu, it only show the LAW results below that will contain contact details etc.

    Is there an easier and quicker way to do this?

    Hi James,

    I am sorry, but that is not quite possible with JotForm builder alone. The form does not have a query function or search engine like on it's tools. This can probably be achieve using the form source code and use javascript or PHP for the query/search function. For example, if you have list which can be query for the word LAW, then, the result can loaded to the Form on a textbox fields.

    Thank you for considering our service. Please inform us should you have other requirements.
