    Asked by VolleyballQLD on October 16, 2016 at 07:11 AM

    Hi jotform, Jill here.

    How do I get the PIN solution as described earlier in this discussion by stekubi on May 28 2015.

    Hopefully such a solution is available.

    Stekubi's solution in the other thread can be achieved using matrix field and conditions.

    I suggest you clone his form http://form.jotformeu.com/form/51472607309354 so you can check the fields setup and its conditions.

    So basically, you will need to have a textbox field which will serve as the output field, a matrix field and form collapse to group the fields you want to display.

    Then create the conditions like the following.

    Next is to set the PIN. Here's the 2nd condition looks like

    This shows the form when the checkboxes checked are 1579.

    To explain, the output format of the matrix checkbox is like the following.


    You only have to replace the zeros with its equivalent number in place. Example, if your PIN is 1249, you need to use the following in the condition.


    Hope this helps. If you need further clarifications, let us know.
