Application: Conditional Questions

In NetCommunity, you can show or hide questions based on responses. For example, if you answer "Yes" to having been hospitalized for behavioral issues, we can reveal a bunch of other questions that we typically wouldn't show to someone who answered "no."

    This idea was merged and marked as "implemented," but my understanding is that logic only applies to custom candidate questions, not to the issue of getting partial household information.

    Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

    Hi All, you can now apply conditional logic on all custom candidate questions within the custom questions block. To see this add the block to the inquiry or application and open block settings. 


    thank you,

    This would be a huge improvement. I'm excited about using School Forms since the data feeds into the database, but we use conditionals in JotForm all the time, which is also tremendously useful, so it will be a hard call about what to move over from JotForm until this is a feature.  It's discouraging to see how long a history this request has, though, without being implemented even though it's under consideration.

    Please don't limit this to applications, it should be added to all forms!

    Yes, please! Conditional logic is a given on form building platforms such as Jotform. I have a lot of forms that I've build in JF that I can't move over to BB due to this. We'd love to have our parents be able to stay within the BB system as much as possible.

    This would be such a helpful improvement to take into account the many variables of family dynamics.

    Agree with above, plus families come in so many shapes and sizes, with a variety of relationships. We would love to have the conditional questions be responsive and allow for more flexibility for a family with a complicated family situation.

    Conditional questions would be a great improvement in all of the communication/forms areas.
