Hiding fields with conditional logic is an easy way to make your forms more manageable and more likely to yield responses. Consider the following two nearly identical forms:
Though both forms ask exactly the same questions, Form 2 does it in a way that is natural, conversational and far less likely to have students take a quick glance and think "That's a too long - I'll fill it in later".
The great news is that it's never been easier to use Field Conditions to choose when to dynamically display fields, based on a range of factors.
To get started, head into your form. Find the field you want to conditionally hide and click to edit it. Navigate to the Conditions tab.
Here you're able to choose which Field you'd like to reference in whether this field is displayed. Choose the Type of modifier (Not Empty, Contains, Greater Than etc.) and, if applicable, the Value.
A typical example of using conditional logical is in the question, "Where did you hear about us?":
In the above image, we can make it so that the Other - please specify question appears only when the Where did you hear about Gecko U? field contains the option of Other.
You're able to add as many conditions as you'd like and are given further control on the Conditions tab by being able to specify if this field should display if ANY or ALL of the conditions are met.
It's important to note that you'll need to first click Save Changes after adding a field to your form in order to add conditions to it.
