Conditional logic: how to set up a display of questions based on answers
Forms in Altcraft Platform can be configured so that some fields are visible only if the user gives a certain answer to a previous question. This mechanism comes in handy when, for example, you want to get more information why a person answers a certain way.
Let's suppose we're running a survey to rate the quality of a product. The form has a box with a scale from 1 to 10. If the person gives a low score, we need to find out what exactly went wrong. To do this, we will add another field - long text. However, this element is hidden. The user will only see it if he gives a score lower than 5.
Additional fields can be displayed after the elements:
Sequence of actions
- When creating the form, click the Constructor tab. Add a Range element. Specify a title, which is the text that the user will see above the field. If you want, set the default value and select the range type:
- Set the condition for the item by clicking the Add a condition button. It was agreed that the next field appears if the selected value is less than 5.
- Right after the field with the condition, on the same page, add a new element. In this case, it is Long text. Set the title and activate the Hidden form element option.
Now if the user selects a certain answer choice, he sees a hidden element and can fill it in. Otherwise, the user proceeds to the next question.
Now you know how to show a user a hidden field in a form if he gives a certain answer to a previous question. In the next article, we'll tell you how to display the certain form pages depending on a specific answer.
