[SOLVED] Add Conditional Logic to Form Views

Need this - been dying to move from Google Forms (and Google Drive) to Airtable!

While we don’t yet support conditional logic in Airtable forms, we have worked together with JotForm and Typeform to create direct integrations from JotForm to Airtable and from Typeform to Airtable. Both JotForm and Typeform support conditional logic in their forms.

I’ve tried the Jotform integration and it does not let you access linked records. The app itself is buggy too. Typeform requires you to sign up for a Pro account, which is 30 bucks a month (59 if you want to remove their branding). I obviously won’t even try that integration.

Airtables forms are way better. You should just add condintional questions.

Thanks!

This should be added natively not through a third party. This has been requested for years. Instead you’re linking to a third party solution that costs more than Airtable Pro.

Please consider it as a native feature.

Hey guys I do agree with all of you here, this is a must, in the mean time I have taken the liberty to forge a form builder to help us with this, I just started coding check out the landing page and do not be shy to share your email I might be in contact with you soon to get some feedback.

It will only work with Airtable, at least at the beginning.

Cheers!

The Typeform/Airtable integration is only available on the “Pro” billed at $35 yearly.
The Jotform/Airtable integration seems to be available on any tier.

“…we don’t yet support conditional logic in Airtable forms…” seems to suggest this feature might be coming in the future…

Hi there, I would love to see this implemented natively as well! I work at a large non-profit and I’m having trouble getting other departments on board using AirTable because they require conditional logic forms (so they prefer to use Google Forms over AirTable). Please please please try to find a way to make this work! I adore AirTable but spending money on another third party app just to make AirTable forms work for my coworkers (when Google does it for free) is out of the question with our nonprofit budget x(( Thank you for everything you do, keep up the good work!

Conditional Logic - please find a way to provide this in Airtable forms.
My situation exactly the same as Alexis_Balinski_Mote

Yes please. I have a large team submitting projects via a form but each product manager has specific items they need to fill out. Would be so much easier for a PM to quickly know what needs to be filled out vs having to read every line or not filling out something specific I need.

I did the same, and I have wasted HOURS! I will probably cancel my account for this reason alone because there’s no good workaround and integrations appear to mean $$ and at least 2 middle men (Zapier and Typeform). How is this not a feature?!

Has there been any update on this? We have done a ton of work to switch over our business to Airtable and automate work for us, but with out a Captcha or Confitional Logic my boss doesn’t want to use this now.

It’s 2019. What kind of form doesn’t have conditional logic questions? Is there an ETA for this, or should I not transition over from google forms?

Same issue for us.

We ended up building an internal form for us that integrate with Airtable extremely easy.

Love to share for a penny price. If anyone interested, ping me.

Is this yet another basic level inclusion that Airtable are completely ignoring the community need for? I am starting to feel VERY worried about my recent choices :frowning:

Thank for the info. However, JotForm or Typeform is not able to read a table within Airtable to present it as options for a dropdown within the from which makes certain my needs for using any of those solutions unworkable. Basic conditional logic within Airtable forms would be ideal. It will allow us to use tables as dropdown option and give us flexibility to leverage conditional logic to drive which dropdown table should appear during the form process.

Right now this is forcing me to look at other database option that can provide this simple functionality. Not sure why conditional logic within forms is being outsource to third party systems, especially when the third-party systems can’t read the data within the table for select-able options within the form.

My choice is either not being able to show or hide prompts on the form so it become overwhelming experience to those who fill it out - OR - have the conditional logic via third-party which you loose functionality to capture the data you need. Or, go with another database system that can be leverage better. I would rather stay with Airtable, but the lack of support for conditional logic for form is a serious issue and creating unwanted challenges where we are missing essential data collection due to overwhelming form prompts.

using Jotform is not what the users are asking, so this feature is not “Solved”

Hi everyone! Thank you for your feedback and context about how conditional form logic would be helpful for you.

We definitely see the value of this kind of functionality, and while we don’t hop in to these threads as often as we’d like to, please remember that this is a community forum, and it is primarily designed for users to have conversations with each other—not for users to contact the staff.

While Airtable employees post on the forums relatively frequently (these users have “Airtable” after their username and a special badge that says “Airtable Employee” on their user profiles), they will not respond to every post, and you should not expect that your post will necessarily receive a response from an Airtable employee.

We do however see and hear the comments posted here, so I just want to reiterate our thanks for your input and passion for Airtable.

I’m closing this topic for now, but if you have other use cases or ideas for this type of functionality, we’d love to hear them! Please reach out to us via the contact us link in-app.

Briefly opening this topic again to announce that our form builder now supports conditional visibility for form fields (i.e. “Show this field when a user selects the “Other” option in another field”). See our announcement:
