Considerations for using display logic and skip logic

  • To add display logic on a custom field, widget, or section break, at least one multiple choice field (radio buttons, dropdown, or checkboxes) must be positioned prior to it on the form.

    For information about custom fields and widgets in custom forms, see Add a custom field to a custom form and Add or edit an asset widget in a custom form.

  • You cannot add skip logic to a widget or section break. You can add it only to a multiple choice field (radio buttons, dropdown, or checkboxes).

  • You can add both display logic and skip logic to a custom field all of the following is true about the custom field:

    • It is a multiple choice field (radio buttons, dropdown, or checkboxes)
    • It is preceded by a multiple choice field
    • It is followed by another custom field
  • When copying forms with display logic or skip logic, the logic is copied to the new custom form.

  • Keep the following in mind when you create a display logic rule for a custom form

    • Custom fields not included in a display logic statement show on a custom form, by default.
    • You can create multi-field display logic statements.

Create a sample custom form that has display and skip logic

The best way to learn how to add display and skip logic to a custom form is through the practical example explained in the two following sections:

Display logic

  1. Click the Main Menu icon in the upper-right corner of Adobe Workfront, then click Setup .

  2. In the left panel, click Custom Forms .

  3. Create the sample custom form:

    1. Click New Custom Form, then click Project in the drop-down list.

    2. In the Form Title box, type Sample custom form - Learning display logic and skip logic.

    3. Click Add a Field in the upper left corner.

    4. Add a dropdown field called Issue Field by clicking Dropdown, then typing Issue field in the Label box.

    5. Under Choices, add the following choices in the text boxes:

      Research needed

      No more research

    6. Click Save + Close in the lower left corner.

  4. Select the new Sample custom form - Learning display logic and skip logic custom form, then click Edit.

  5. Add a new single line text field called Other Research by clicking Single Line Text Field, then typing Other Research in the Label box.

  6. Click Add Logic near the lower-left side of the Edit Custom Form screen.

  7. In the box that appears, with the Display Logic tab open, set up the logic for when the Other Research field will appear on the form by clicking Issue field in the first drop-down, Research Needed in the second drop-down, and Selected in the third drop-down.

  8. Click Save to close the Field Logic window, then click Done in the Field Settings area.

    Now, when someone selects Research Needed in the Issue field drop-down, the Other Research field will display.

  9. Click Preview to make sure the logic appears the way you want it on the form.

  10. Click End Preview when you find that the logic works as expected.

  11. Click Save + Close on the Edit Custom Form window to save the form, then continue on to Skip logic below.

Skip logic

Skip logic functions similarly to display logic, but acts as the inverse: instead of making specific custom multiple-choice fields appear based on specific selections, you determine which ones should be skipped, based on users’ selections.

To learn about this, continue working on the sample custom form you created in the section Display logic in this article:

  1. Click the Main Menu icon in the upper-right corner of Adobe Workfront, then click Setup .

  2. Click Custom Forms.

  3. Select the form Sample custom form - Learning display logic and skip logic that you created in the steps above, then click Edit.

  4. Select the drop-down field you created named Issue field.

  5. Click the Add Logic button in the Field Settings sidebar.

  6. In the Field Logic box, make sure the Skip Logic tab is selected.

  7. Set the first drop-down to No more research and the second drop-down to Selected.

  8. In the Then Skip To drop-down, select End of form.

    Now, when someone selects No more research in the Issue field drop-down field, the form will skip directly to the end of the form without displaying the Other Research field.

  9. Click Save.

  10. Click Preview to make sure the logic applies the way you want it.

  11. Click Done in the lower left side of the form.
