How do I allow just one collapsable field/form to be submitted without the need for required fields to be completed on the 2nd collapsable field?

    I have two collapsable fields on my form and depending on the position a person wants depends on the field they complete. However on submission the form is asking for both collapsable fields to be complete. How do I get it so one form or the other can be completed without having to fill in two forms.

    This is quite not doable yet in the form builder. In actual, you only have a single form. The collapsable field only hide/collapse some of the required fields as you designed it. When form is submitted, it will still check/read all of the field elements in the form, either required or not.

    There had been some workaround on this by some JotForm users as well -- by using the Conditional Logic on form. You may want to check for that option.

    Another method I have seen around, specifically for those who have their own website is creating a separate forms for each category(in your collapsable field) and used a tab navigation menu in the web page representing each category or group of fields in the form.

    I hope this provided help by any means. Thanks.
