Condition-based display of fields for multi-level questions
I would like to request creating a way to display a registration field based on a previous field selection.
For example, If I have the question "Are you interested in learning about this committee?" If the answer is yes, I would like a second question to display. If the answer is no, I do not want the second question to display.
I've been told this is not a current feature in Wild Apricot but think this would be very useful for membership, registration and donation forms.
We currently use a WP plugin that allows Conditional Logic, we want to move to Wild Apricot but not having these capabilities making us pause.
Any suggestion on how to work around this limitation? I am looking for ideas to unblock us from the move.
Our logic is basic, for a family membership the parent is asked how many kids they have, if two, two sets of fields are displayed to collect the information about the children. The idea is to associate kids with a parent, control the number of contacts for kids, and use these details for event registrations.
Looking for ideas, I really don't want to abandon going live with this platform.
Agreed agreed. Conditional logic would be wildly useful for both contact information and/or event or membership questions. PLEASE IMPLEMENT IT
Agreed, I'm also looking for some conditional logic relating to countries. We are unable to ship our print journal to some countries due to embargoes or postal constraints, so we need to be able to recognise and offer people from there an online-only membership level instead. I haven't found a workaround yet.

I volunteered to help out with the website for an organization when the person who had been their web support left. I knew nothing about Wild Apricot at the time. I recognize that there are things it does well, but I am continually surprised at the number of standard system/business things it does not do and apparently has no interest in supporting: digital signatures, custom forms, conditional logic. All the glorious functionality of WordPress plugins so near, yet so far away. Conditional logic - such a rudimentary feature of all software systems! Add me to those who want to see it in WA.
I use this in Jotform all the time. It would be excellent to have this.

As others have commented, this would be extremely helpful for membership forms. For example, I'd like to ask a question about international shipping options ONLY if the member is not from the U.S. or Canada. Once they select a country other than those two, the question should appear; otherwise it should not.

This conditional logic would be very helpful when people are ordering food for an event as well.
Yes, I totally agree. Here where I work we need very much this condition too. It would be much appreciated.
Yes, This is a feature that would make our membership application better

Also agree. This would be a very important feature and would help considerably with the membership form functionality and ease of use. At the very least it should be able to do conditional based membership fields that only display based on a previous field selection.

I totally agree. Conditional display and branching logic would be invaluable for our registrations. Would make a big difference to the usability of the forms.
I agree with the others: this is pretty necessary functionality to have in 2018!
In my situation within the pages presented by the registration widget I need to be able to conditionally display a required custom contact field based on the type of event. I all need to conditionally display a content widget at the front of that flow based on the type of event.

Would very much like to see this with events. Very important to us.

This is our most important feature request. It would also be most helpful if there were more design flexibility for forms. At the very least, we would like to place first names, MI and last names on the same line. WA's vertical forms get very long and daunting and do not encourage members to complete the forms.

Not having conditional responses is a serious negative mark for our needs. I am going to need to reconsider using Wild Apricot for the other orgs we manage if this is not a feature implemented soon. It is a requirement for the events we manage and produce. Period.
Based on the date of this thread that it was originally shared FIVE YEARS AGO, it looks like it isn't something that is going to happen. :(

I have also asked for conditional branching in Polling questions
Alex Sirota commented
Yes it absolutely is related! Thanks.

Not just membership fields. This should be available on event custom fields. For example if you use an extra charge radio button it would be nice to present an optional or required set of fields, based on the radio button selected for extra charge present more fields.
This is useful when collecting extra information on registrations without using the guest feature which is much more complex and cumbersome to use.
The basic idea of membership fields is a good idea, but this is useful only on a registration of a new membership or renewal. Sometimes you want to record some extra information DURING a membership period rather than on initiation or renewal, this is where events can be used effectively with conditional logic on radio buttons and checkboxes and drop downs.
