Form Rules

Apply form logic through form rules

You can create form rules and recommendations to apply form logic without writing JavaScript code. Form rules provide a simple interface to implement commonly used rules. By combining conditions and actions, you can do the following with form rules:
  • Set field value based on a formula, a value from another field, and a constant value.
  • Clear field values.
  • Make the field required.
  • Show or hide fields.
  • Enable or disable fields.
  • Validate data and show error messages.
  • Change field instructions.

1. Go to form explorer.
2. Select the form you want to create the form rule for, then click on the ‘Rules -> Form Rules’ menu item from the toolbar.
