    Make Short Scrollable Terms widget visible based on a specific selection.

    Asked by laciezahradnik on October 10, 2016 at 12:22 PM



    I want to be able to make my Short Scrollable Terms widget only available to those who choose the ESLI in Canada.  So as with other conditions in this form, I thought I could use the show/hide feature.  Its not working.

    How can I make this visible only to those who choose ESLI in Canada?


    Also, I would like to use this same widget in (but different content) in the same form.  Is this possible?

    I just cloned your form, and I see you have properly created the condition:

    Upon testing via URL parameters(selecting "ESLI at Trinity Western University Langley, B.C. (Canada)", and jumping to page 5 where the widget is located), the widget is shown, example:



    However, if we follow the flow of the form, you may end up in a page where this widget is not located:

    That happens because of all the conditions you have setup. So if the user makes a selection in the following fields, these fields trigger other conditions that shows new fields, which according to the selection will take you to a specific page:

    What you can do is to clone this widget, and position it a the end of each page(similar to the one located in page 5), example:

    Note: make sure to hold the ctrl key while selecting the fields where the widget should go under, and also check the "Duplicate Conditions" option.

    On regards of adding another "Short Scrollable Terms" widget, that's not a problem, simply add it. Let us know if you need more help, we will be glad to assist you.
