Go to „Multi Step Form“ > „Settings“ > „Conditional Fields“
On default the checkbox is not checked, please make sure to set the marker here to activate the “conditional fields” in your forms
- Please make sure that you implement conditional logic after finishing the form and filling in all headings and content elements.
- Safe and copy your form to make sure that you can go backwards while creating conditional logic.
- There is a small risk of loosing all conditional logic after saving the form to the backend
(we are still working on that, we will release an update after solving that issue).
- Please avoid moving elements with conditional logic.
This is a simple example how “conditional fields” can be used.
