Can I create advanced rules (that involve more than two fields)?
Yes. You can create complex rules containing up to 10 conditions. These conditions can be linked using the operator AND or the operator OR. Why would you need complex rules? Because you might want to show/hide fields based on more than one previous answer.
Let’s take a basic example. You’re asking form users whether they are going on vacation and whether they have a cat. If the answer is affirmative to both questions, then you also want to know whether they’ll be taking their cat along on vacation. If not, there’s no purpose in asking. This is the double condition rule that you need to set up:
How to set up an advanced rule:
Go to your Settings → Rules section and click Add Rule under any of the three tabs: Field Rules, Confirmation Rules or Form Rules. Use:
- the grey plus sign to add a new condition to the advanced rule
- Hover over the condition and click Delete remove it from the advanced rule
- the dropdown lists on the left to select the operator
Subrules allow you to add rules within other rules. See this example below:
Below, you can see three examples of advanced rules, for fields, autoresponders and custom redirect. Keep in mind that a complex rule can contain up to 10 conditions.
