Conditionally Required Fields

    I love the conditional logic these forms allow, but currently the only action is "show" or "hide". I would love to be able to conditionally mark a field as required.

    Use case: a contact form with name, phone, email, and a select or radio buttons with "How would you prefer to be contacted?" If the user says "phone", make phone required!

    Thanks for the thread. I'll make sure our devs see it. All my best!

  3. uggh - exactly what I was hoping to find a way to do. I take it that this isn't possible?

  4. never mind on that - I found my answer.

    TW - if you make the phone number field's visibility conditional on the user checking the 'contact me by phone' box, and mark the phone number required, then it will be required only if it is visible to the user. Does that help?

    Some people want all the field elements to be visible and make them required on certain circumstances. Like if someone says "contact me only via Phone", you'll still want to collect their e-mail address and whatnot, but you'll want the phone field to be required where it might not need to be if they had selected to only contact them via e-mail. It is a bit of a small semantics issue, but one I still think our development team might be interested in.

    Thanks for commenting Laura and you are correct on what you found out.
