Earlier this week, Alex released a great update to our new Rule Builder to help you get more out of the rules you guys have been furiously adding to your Wufoo forms. The new feature allows you to add multiple conditions per rule, which means you can now use AND/OR operators to condense what used to take multiple rules for the same action into one single rule. I know that’s a mouthful so, here’s our own Timmy with a screencast demoing the Multiple Conditions feature:
To add another condition to an existing rule, just click on the gray + button to the right of the first condition. This will add a logical operator dropdown with the ability to state whether the rule requires all of the conditions to be true (AND) or at least one of the conditions to be true (OR) before the action will be executed. When in doubt, just read the rule as if it were a sentence to help you understand what Wufoo will do with the rule.
Please note that when you change the operator between AND and OR on a rule with more than two conditions that we will change all of the operators associated within that rule to match that selection. Either all of the conditions have to be connected with ANDs or all are evaluated as ORs. You can’t mix and match those operators within a single rule. When you play around with it, you’ll see what we mean. Different rules, however, can use different logical operators.
The multiple conditions can be use on any rule type. That means you can now optimize and condense the show and hide actions in Field Rules, the skipping actions in Page Rules and also the routing actions in Form Rules. Now you can get more out of the Rule Builder with a lot less interface clutter.
The ability to add multiple conditions for your rules is limited to 50 conditions per rule and is availble to all users on all plans. We’re really excited this latest update and hope it helps you create even smarter forms in Wufoo!
