    Require multipule fields based on Number in Party.

    svalhus

      I am making a form for an online rsvp.  The first question is:  How many in your party?  There is a pull down up to 10 guests.  I would like to make it such that if there is a party of eight, that eight names need to be entered in the fields.  I am doing this for a reason.  In the past we have sent out an rsvp and the forms come back incomplete.  They say there is going to be a party of 5, and there are 4 names.  I thought by using the hide/show aspect of FC that I could write a condition that if they select 8 in their party, that 8 fields show, and they must fill them all in.  Thanks for your help....I hope this works!

          Yes, you can use FormsCentral's hide/show rules to only show the appropriate number of fields. You can mark all of the fields required so people must fill them out before submitting.

            Thank you Randy.  Could you be a little more specific.  I tried to do that, but it didn't quite work.  Say someone wanted a party of three.  I would like to then show field 1.2.3.  It doesn't allow me to select multiple fields to open.  I thought about making a field for just 3 names so my conditions could be directed just to that one item, but I can't combine multiple fields into a single conditional object.

              Make a drop down with the number of choices - 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8

              Create the fields for choice one; duplicate them 8 times

              Select the first set of fields and turn on show/hide rules

              Setup up the rule like this dialog - you make a rule for values 1-8

              On the 2nd set of fields you do the same thing but the value is 2-8

              On the 3rd set of fields you do the same thing but the value is 3-8

              On the 4th set of fields you do the same thing but the value is 4-8

              Repeat... till you get to 8

               

              Hope that makes sense
