You can use the Show/Hide Field conditional logic if you need to show or hide questions on your form depending on the user’s answer.
As an example, this demo form is configured to show a follow-up question to the “Would you like any dessert?” question if the answer is “Yes.”
Here’s how to set it up:
- In Form Builder, click on Settings at the top.
- Choose Conditions on the left.
- Add a new condition and select the Show/Hide Field option.
- Set up the rule in the next window.
In the example form, the conditional logic is as follows:
- IF: Would you like any dessert?
- STATE: Is Equal To
- VALUE: Yes
- DO: Show
- FIELD: What kind of dessert do you have in mind?
- Click on Save at the bottom to save the changes.
You can add as many rules as needed. You can also show or hide multiple fields at once. Check out the following guides to learn more:
Thanks for your response. I haven't tried at it yet but I follow the advice offered.
However, one point remains to be clarified in my mind.
For arguments sake let's say there are two categories, category A and category B with a maximum response of, say, 50 responses.
Category A only allows one response per submission, so the first would reduce the number then available to 49.
Category B allows up to four responses per submission, so after a single category A response as above a category B response could be for one (reducing number available now to 48) *or* for two (reducing the number available to 47), *or* for three (reducing the number available to 46) *or* for four reducing the number now available to 45. The number of responses in a category B submission (i.e. one, two, three or four) to reduce the total number available, Or would that be a step too far?
Has there been a solution to this issue yet? I am having the same problem. I am trying to create an order form for building materials. I have each material with a drop down box for qty and one for color but I need a text box for each one as the length will always be different for each order and for each product in each order. Jotform has exceeded all of my expectations and has been so helpful I’m surprised this option isn’t available as I’m sure it is a relatively common feature.
This is helpful however does not cover dynamic dropdowns.
