Hiding questions based on a user's answers is a great way to speed up filling out forms. It also prevents users from mistakenly answering non-relevant questions. We allow questions to be hidden based on answers given when filling out asset attributes.
For example, say you created a form to inspect a piece of machinery. You may have an attribute that asks you the following:
Frequency of Use
- Not in Use
If the user says your piece of machinery has a "Heavy" frequency of use, you will more than likely ask more questions than if the piece of machinery were "Not in Use". When "Not in Use" is chosen, you will just setup the questions to be excluded from the form.
