    Hi Bailey, this is very fair feedback and I can see exactly why your team may find the form longer if there are many pages due to conditional redirects. The detail you've provided here is great, and so useful for our Product Team when reviewing this feature.

    In other forms I've seen where someone wanted to achieve the same process, they often used this workaround; the input field 'If yes, what is that you require...' could also include, 'If no, please type N/A', in your question field.ย 

    If the person selects 'No', you can ignore the following input field for requirements when the task is generated.

    Admittedly, it's not an ideal solution, but it may work for you now and I'd like to hear your thoughts on it.

    If there are any related releases from our Product Team I'll be sure to update you here. Thanks for posting ๐Ÿ‘

    Thank you Stephen for the feedback, and possible other solution for the workaround. I have a couple forms I may be able to try this possible solution out with, and see how effective of a "workaround" it may be. This sounds like a good option for follow up questions that I need to put as "required".

    That's great to hear Bailey ๐Ÿ™‚

    If you do apply the solution, it would be great toย get yourย insights so feel free to pop back to me here if you'd like to share your thoughts on it ๐Ÿ‘

    We too would love to have conditional options within forms.ย  Our marketing team has the need to route complicated projects requiring multi-disciplined teams to one project.ย  Currently we require all projects to get routed through Operations but ourย various departmentsย would like the ability to ask follow-up questions depending upon the tactics the requester needs.ย  An example might be a project request for an digital ad, a SharePoint page for employees to volunteer for an event and maybe some promotional items.ย  In this case, I would like to have an open/close tree option that if the requester "checks the box" for that option further required information shows but does not take them off of the main form because they need to continue requesting further tactics.ย  Again, a conditional Open/Close format (if then statement?) would really help streamline our intake system.

    The conditional redirects work great if the requester only needs one item.

    We echo Bailey Burke's & Andrea Bonk's comments re: conditional follow-up questions.

    Is there a roadmap for this? Re-directing to a new page anytime there is a conditional response is cumbersome to the creator of the form and to user.

    ย 

    Thanks!

    I agree with the above posters. The ability to have a conditional form solves a lot of problems.ย 

    Basically, I'd like to hide a prompt unless it is needed. The need for the prompt can be determined by the response to a prior question.ย 
    This simple capability makes the request forms take on a whole new dimension of usefulness.ย 

    Thanks!

    The same goes for our company. We have several forms where it would be preferable to have conditional questions based on previous answers within the same page. Is this something that will be developed in the near future?

    I agree with the above. I need to be able to ask follow up questions in the dropdown, but not redirect to a new page for each time. Are there plans to add conditional logic to request forms anytime soon?ย

    Same here. I'm afraid that with too many request forms, we'll go from using forms to not using forms because there will be so many to choose from. Need better tools to allow consolidation of forms and dynamically changing questions on a page with some basic logic.

    Also, is there a thread or request I can upvote that talks about copying a form or even copying a question from one spot in a form to another. I can't count the number of times I've built the "Which Project" question on all my forms and then have to build the answers and direct which folder the task gets put into.ย

    We also need the ability to create dependent/conditional/cascading drop-down lists inside a request form. These cascading fields would act as a filter for the next dropdown question in the form. This will reduce the number of custom fields required in the system and improve reporting/filtering.

    We are hoping to use Wrike's built-in reporting/viewing features and are not currently connecting Wrike to another database for reporting where relationships can be built. Using the recommended workaround by creating an independent custom field for all the variations is creating limitations in reporting, request forms and making maintaining the systems difficult.

    These links explain what we are hoping Wrike will create.

    Just echoing everyone's sentiment. My work-around is to use Formstack with Zapier to build out robust forms that can create Wrike tasks. It would definitely be better if this was native to Wrike at some point though!

    Any updates from the Wrike product team on when they could add this to their development schedule?ย  ย  Since Wrike added automation to request forms, we are exponentially more efficient.ย  This is the only thing holding us back.ย  ย 


    Please add IF/THEN logic to request forms so we can dive deeper with additional questions when relevant and ignore those questions when not relevant.ย  It will greatly help users point to less request forms and decrease their search to make sure they choose the correct request form each time.

    There are currently no plans to add this to the short-term roadmap, but this is subject to change. Once this thread reaches 60 upvotes, I'll be able to provide the thread with a status update.ย 

    If you have any other questions, let me know!

    Hey everyone, apologies for the delay in response here.

    The Product team currently have no plans to add this suggestion to the short-term roadmap. I understand that this is disappointing, but be assured that the team is constantly reading your feedback in regards to this. If anything changes, I'll be sure to let you know.
