Forcing a response for the following question based on previous question response.

Options

Hi @Andrée Starå

I have a form with field name "Fixation" with dropdown Satisfactory and Improvements possible options to choose from. Following this field, I have "Comment" field. I do want to make this field require (*) if the participant chooses improvements possible option in the "Fixation" field. However, I still need "Comment" field to appear even if the option Satisfactory was selected (if they might want to add some info). But if the improvements possible option is selected, the following field should be a forced response. Is there a way that we can do this? Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Hi @Mounika

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You would have to add two so-called helper columns, which would be a second comment column, and then have the second one collect from both.

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
