Multiple Selection Fields can be set to have conditional visibility based on a single selection field's option

The "Conditional Option" Advanced Field Property has been enabled for Multiple Selection fields

The "Conditional Option" Advanced Field Property has been enabled for Multiple Selection fields

The multiple selection field's options can be set to appear based on a previous field's selected option. This means you can set up a single selection field and the option selected will limit the multiple selection options that appear.

N.B. You can only limit which the multiple selection fields appear based on a single selection field, not on another multiple selection field.

The example here shows that options within a Multiple Selection Fields can be set to appear conditionally; based on prior field's selected option

The conditional multiple selection options need to be set up in the same way as conditional  single selection options fields

Use the options from the single selection fields and add in a a ":" (colon) to denote which multiple selection options will appear when it is selected.  Then, list the multiple selection items below that (please note that this is clearly explained in the article on conditional option visibility). For example

  • A:
  • A1
  • A2
  • B:
  • B1
  • B2

This means if A is selected, then A1 and A2 will BOTH be available for selection.Similiarly, if B is selected then B1 and B2 will BOTH be available for selection.  

Once these are set, preview the form and see how the multiple options appear.

#1: The example here shows that when no option is selected the multiple selection options are hidden.

#2: Once an option is selected (e.g. B), the correct multiple selection options appear

Different conditional multiple selection options appear depending on the option field selected

These are functional when entering in data into a Table. But, the field that sets the visibility must be a field in the table. If it is a field external to the table it will not set the visibility of fields within the table (as shown in the image in the step below).

N.B. Table conditional options ONLY work when the option field sits within the table. The option cannot sit outside the table
