What are conditions and how are they structured?

Think of conditions as rules set within forms. These rules determine what happens next based on what users input or select.

In general, conditions can be divided into two sections:


In this section, you specify what is being checked. For example, it might be the answer to a question in the form.


In this section, you define what happens if the condition is met. In other words, what should occur in the form if the requirement from the 'If…' section is fulfilled.

Structure of a condition

  1. Trigger (If…): This is the criterion or condition that must be met. It could be a specific answer to a question, such as a choice or an entered value.
  2. Outcome (Then…): This is the form’s response to the trigger. Possible effects could include:

  1. An additional question is visible or hidden.
  2. A specific input field becomes a required field.
  3. A redirection to another page occurs. (Conditions on form pages)

Using conditions can make forms more user-friendly by displaying only relevant information and guiding users through the form without overwhelming them with unnecessary form elements.

The use of conditions also offers advantages when it comes to data protection and data minimisation, as data is only collected when necessary.
