It’s here! You can now configure form fields so that they display or hide based on the submitter’s responses in previous fields.
Here’s how to use it in the form builder:
And here’s some useful tips:
More information can be found in the conditional form fields support article.
I wanted to add that: I tried to set a Default value for the field, but, if I do not “open” the conditional field, in the new record that is created after “submit”, the field is empty and not auto-filled with the Default value. Is it normal or it is a bug?
Was this ever resolved?
Hi Mark. This was from a while ago, but do you know if Airtable solved this where a prefilled field in a form can be used to configure conditional form fields?
We gave up waiting for this to be fixed, so it’s not something I’ve looked at for several months.
Seems like this would be an intuitive, almost automatic feature, since conditional form fields are dependent on previous fields :face_with_raised_eyebrow: . Like you, it renders Airtable’s forms somewhat useless for me. It could have enhanced the user friendliness of conditional form fields, especially when records are associated, but need to be differentiated for different user inputs. Thanks for the update!
the work around they provided is automations. You can use the when a form is submitted trigger to prefill it with static values, You can use the when a record matches conditions trigger if you need to prefill it with dynamic values.
im confused as to how your form is built you would need this functionality. maybe if your forms are that specific and dynamic its time for a portal.
could we get an update from your product team?
Hi Rebecca. You may be right about a portal. I need fields that only show up, dependent on other table’s records. Ideally, from multiple tables to include user data and item data on the table where the form is located. I figured prefilling fields on a form would allow subsequent conditional form fields to generate the appropriate form fields for the condition(s). I’m afraid an automation occurs after the form is submitted, which wouldn’t populate the appropriate fields for users in the first place. What kind of portal would work in this case?
im confused because i have had this work before. I just tested it and it does work. can I see your prefill URL?
