Dynamic forms which bring up new questions based on answers
We suggest that you add a feature to forms so when a prospect answers a question a certain way (like a choice in a drop down) they are brought to a deeper level question of redirected to another page based on that answer (aka form actions based on answer). This is already possible with Google Forms. We feel this is better to follow up right away rather than nurture them in email to get them come back and fill out more form fields to get the answers we need to qualify them.
I love that there are presets for the Country field, but the state/region field is cumbersome. Our current site has dependent validation so the state/region list they see is determined by the country they select. I'd love to see this in the HubSpot forms. 1) It makes it easier on the user and 2) it keeps our data clean if all possible answers are there in the format we need them to be in in our database.
A great idea for my company would be, that you can link the geographical form fields with each other.
So when you indicate a specific country, Hubspot opt - out automatically all regions/states that does not belong to that country. On this way the leads region choices are limited and preset.
Why do I want this?
As a mulitnational company we have different distributors per country all over the world. If the lead could indicate a preset region we could link that directly to the right distributor so that he gets immediately the lead's data which should fasten the follow - up process.
Now a lead passes 2 to 3 persons before it comes to the right distributor, sometimes this could take 2 weeks before he gets contacted. Which is just too long...
In our forms we use required fields around, City, State, Country and Global Region. We are finding an issue where there is no logic around the four fields so we are getting inaccurate data coming in as people that choose Bali for example as their country still need to choose a state. This would be extremely helpful in keeping our data integrity in place.
It would be great to allow for a text field next to an, "other," radio button option.
Alternatively, some way to attach a required text field that appears if the, "other," option is chosen.
When filling out a web form, there should be an auto-generated form field, which would populate if "other" is selected from a drop down menu, to allow the person filling out the form to write another choice/description.
This field should also sync with Salesforce.com.
You show the client very short form at the star and then depending on his selections new fields are opening until he comes to the end of the form in a very smooth way. This could boost landing page conversions for longer forms....
Create a way to use logic based questions in the form builder. An example would be, if I want to ask if someone is staying at a hotel, and they select yes, then a pre-set selection of dates will appear under that question. If they select no, then that date section will stay hidden. "Show this field if all/any/certain fields match the following".
Our marketing responses are very different for a client with a male child, female child, or multiple children of mixed genders. Having a smart form that could expand beyond single child data fields to multiple (only if the lead has multiple children) would be extremely helpful.
Would like to have "logic questions" in the form builder. For example, if the user selects a certain answer more questions can come about based off their answer. Most survey tools have this feature.
ex. How would you classify your organiztaion (Vendor, End User, Other)
If they select vendor than additional "vendor" questions appear before the rest of the survey
Create a form that will allow options to pop-up based on the previous answers.
For example, if I select that I want to visit on Tuesday, the next field should pop up with selections specific to Tuesday.
Also have the form recognize a number that is not in proper form. For example, if a zip code is entered and is only 4 digits, require that user to fix.
Why do we ask repeat downloaders to fill out the same information form after form? As a Hubspot user, I would like Hubspot to serve up different forms to repeat downloaders, allowing us to gain more information on users over time.
Example: The first time a user downloads they fill out Name, Email. This lowers the entry by only asking for two fields. The next time they come back, we say "welcome back, name. What company do you work for, and whats your phone #?" etc... A company called "Live Ball" by Ion Interactive currently has this functionality.
Apply conditional logic to a field to show or hide that field based on a previous user selection.
This is now live in all portals. Thanks for all your patience and votes on this one. Please see the post in your HubSpot portal’s notification center for more information, or visit the Forms tool and start editing! Thanks,
I have the same question/issue as Christine (below). I marked a dependent field as Required, however, it is not marked that way on the live form. I went back and checked my work, and even though I marked the field required and saved the form afterwards, the required "*" does not "keep." It keeps defaulting back to a non-required field.
Also, I have many of my forms set to email me when someone completes one. The dependent fields do not show up in the correct order on my emails. Can this be fixed?
Looks great! One question though - I marked a dependent field as Required, however it is not marked as such on the live form. Is this a known issue?

Awesome!!! Can't wait to try this out :)
This is something we need as soon as possible. The last update from HubSpot states this would be available mid July. Any update on the status of the release?
Nick Newlin commented
Is there an update on the timing of this release?
This functionality is really needed for basic things like switching values under a state/province drop-down based on the selection for country. Without this, we have a choice between not using Hubspot forms (sigh) or letting tons of junk data in through single-line text fields (also, sigh).
can we join this beta?

Is there any way our team could participate in the beta? Thanks so much!

Could we please participate in the beta?
Ryan Schortmann commented
I'd love to participate in the beta - I've built several smart forms already and it would be nice to see how they transition with Hubspot native forms. Thanks
i'd like to try out the beta version as well!

Hi, can we please participate in the beta?

Does anyone know of an easy work around to allow branching logic on the forms?
This form is a must. I have specific products based on state. So I'd like to have my product form field shrink to the products only provided in the state of the lead.
Yep, this feature is an absolute must I think.
yes, please add. We're running a self-serve platform and would like to know what the customers want to use us for.
We have a lot of specific questions related to certain industries we don't want to ask everyone. It would be a great feature.
