Is it possible to make certain form fields required based on other form field selections?

    Hi @Jeff McFarland ,

    I don't think you can make a field required dynamically. You can use form logic so that if the value in 1 field meets the criteria, other fields are presented. The other fields can be made required.

    If this is really important you could create a work around where you have a field that is required e.g. [Address Required] and a field that's not [address]. In the form logic if the response in a field requires an address you would present the [address required] field which would be marked as required in the settings. If the address isn't required you'd present the [Address] field which isn't marked as required in the settings. I say if it's really important because the extra columns could cause you lots of extra work on the backend and complicate your formulas.

    Curious to see if anyone else has a better answer.
