How to Show or Hide Fields Based on User’s Answer

Last Update: 

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:

  1. In Form Builder, click on Settings at the top.
  2. Choose Conditions on the left.
  3. Add a new condition and select the Show/Hide Field option.

  1. Click on Save at the bottom to save the changes.
