    Is there a way to add many items and calculate all those in one condition?

    Asked by gioglifx on November 10, 2016 at 02:01 AM

    This is wonderful, is there a way to consolidate the same outcome if the form has a lot of items?

    I mean, with this form there are only two (2) items and adding the conditions to each one is fine since that's very manageable.  But, what if I create a food menu (oppose to a catering menu) with dozens and dozens of items, with this it seems that the conditions' page would be HUGE.  

    Is there a way to add many items and and calculate all those in one condition window?

    That would be very helpful since now that the form is truly dynamic functionally on the end-user side, I'd like to see if there's a way for my end to be more efficient.

    Thank you in advance, I look forward for your response.

    Best regards.

    I see from the previous thread that you want the selections on the Extras fields to be cleared when the dropdown is set to none. My colleague there suggested to use conditions to achieve your requirement.

    Another workaround I can suggest for your requirement would be to set the Form Preferences to "Clear Hidden Values on Being Hidden". With this method, you will have the same outcome without having to setup conditions for each item. 

    Please follow the steps below:

    1. Open the Preferences wizard

    2. Click Advanced then Show More

    3. Scroll down to the "Clear Hidden Field Values" setting and set it to "Clear on Being Hidden"

    Save the changes and you're all set. Now when the Extras field is hidden, all the selections from that field will be cleared, no conditions needed. Here's a demo form so you can see it in action: https://form.jotform.com/63141561427956. You can also clone the form to your account.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.
    Regards.
