Field Visibility: Setting up the visibility for your fields

If you have covered the lessons on the visibility settings for sections then the field visibility settings work in the same manner.

By default all fields will appear in the event form to be entered on the application. You can specify that some questions are hidden unless specific visibility settings are met.

Visibility

The Visibility Properties allow you to hide questions in a form that are dependent on the outcome of a previous question. For example, we have added in the single selection Question before the skinfold measures and we only want the correct measures and calculations to appear based on that selection.

To set up Visibility Filters:

1. Select whether you want an all or any requirement:

-Visible when all of: means that you can add in multiple filters and all of the filter criteria have to be met for the question to appear.

-Visible when any of: means that you can add in multiple filters and if only one of them meets the filter criteria, the question will appear.

2. Click on the green circle with a plus in it to add a filter setting (the image above shows that is has already been clicked)

3. Set the Filter for a specific Field Name. This example is using "Is your mother your primary contact"

4. Set the Condition. Depending on whether the field is numeric, an option or a special field different filter conditions will appear. This example which shows that Equal To has been selected

5. Set the Search Term. This example shows that "Yes" has been selected.

Add in as many Filters as you require by clicking the green "+" or remove filters by clicking the red "-"

Click on the preview button at the bottom of the form to see how the form displays in the preview page.

N.B. The question will be displayed on the form overview on the builder page on the right regardless of the visibility settings. However, it will be hidden on the application Form until the All or Any Filter conditions are met.

For this example, we are going to hide the body composition fields that appear depending on whether sum of 4, sum of 7 and sum of 8 is selected at the top of the page

All fields in an anthropometry form appear to be entered by default. In the step below we are going to set only the appropriate fields to appear using different Visibility settings for each field.

For this Skinfolds form the following changes would be made:

The following visibility settings would be made for the fields:

Triceps- no visibility filters as it is used in every equation

Biceps -Visible when all of : skinfolds measures: not equal to: Sum 7. This means the field WILL appear when Sum of 4 or sum of 8 are selected

Subscapular- no visibility filters as it is used in every equation

Suprailliac- no visibility filters as it is used in every equation

Iliac Crest- Visible when all of : skinfolds measures: not equal to: Sum 4. This means the field WILL appear when Sum of 7 or sum of 8 are selected

Abdominal-Visible when all of : skinfolds measures: not equal to: Sum 4. This means the field WILL appear when Sum of 7 or sum of 8 are selected

Thigh -Visible when all of : skinfolds measures: not equal to: Sum 4. This means the field WILL appear when Sum of 7 or sum of 8 are selected

Calf - Visible when all of : skinfolds measures: not equal to: Sum 4. This means the field WILL appear when Sum of 7 or sum of 8 are selected

Sum 4 - Visible when all of : skinfolds measures: equal to: Sum 4. This means the field WILL appear when Sum of 4 is selected

Sum 7- Visible when all of : skinfolds measures: equal to: Sum 7. This means the field WILL appear when Sum of 7 is selected

Sum 8 -Visible when all of : skinfolds measures: equal to: Sum 8. This means the field WILL appear when Sum of 8 is selected

% Body fat - Visible when all of : skinfolds measures: equal to: Sum 8. This means the field WILL appear when Sum of 8 is selected

Fat Free Mass -Visible when all of : skinfolds measures: equal to: Sum 8. This means the field WILL appear when Sum of 8 is selected

Fat Mass-Visible when all of : skinfolds measures: equal to: Sum 8. This means the field WILL appear when Sum of 8 is selected

Now click preview to see how the form changes based on whether Sum 4, Sum 7 or Sum 8 is selected.

When sum of 4 is selected the form updates to display the correct fields

When sum of 4 is selected the form updates to display the correct fields

When sum of 7 is selected the form updates to display the correct fields

When sum of 7 is selected the form updates to display the correct fields

When sum of 8 is selected the form updates to display the correct fields

When sum of 8 is selected the form updates to display the correct fields

Visibility settings can also be set when numeric fields are below or above a certain limit. E.g. If the sum of 8 skinfolds was below 35 you could have an additional question that you ask the athlete

Always preview the form and check that you have set up the equal to and not equal to, and visible when all or any correctly. Some visibility settings can be complex and it is easy to make a mistake.
