Conditional Fields/Branching Paths

Recommended Posts

Not entirely sure how best to implement this, but the ability to set up branching paths would be useful.

For instance, on a staff application I may have a set of radio/select buttons indicating what team a user would like to apply to. Based on that selection, I may want to display additional fields for questions specific to that team. If someone selects that they want to join my social media team, I may then ask if they are an artist. If they answer yes, then I may have a required field where they provide a link to their portfolio.

If they choose a different path, such as selecting that they want to join HR, that art portfolio field would never be displayed and, despite it being a required field, form submission should still be considered successful despite it not being filled out.

As for implementation, I would prefer to see the form update live based on their selection, however if a paged approach like Google Forms is easier to implement, that's fine too.

To add onto this, perhaps conditional fields could be based on other attributes as well. Here are some conditions I could think of:

  • User is guest (useful for contact forms. If guest, ask for email. If logged in, use account email). Might be merged into next bullet.
  • User is in certain user group(s)
  • Number of user posts
  • User reputation
  • User Ranks
  • User Badges
  • Account Completion (I want staff to have linked their discord account because we communicate primarily on Discord. I have an account completion step to add this authentication provider. If they have not done so, I may have a Yes/No field that says you are aware that this is a required step for staff.)

Open to other ideas too, if anyone has suggestions. I think I covered most of the typical things.
