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.
We have completed UX testing on this feature and are beginning active development now. Thanks for the votes!

This would be very useful.

Do you have a ballpark timeline? Are you thinking this would be a Q3/Q4 thing, or are you looking at sometime in 2016?
Please add this feature.
Please Add this feature it would be extremely valuable.
Nick Newlin commented
Ironic that the voting form on this page is dynamic!
This would be great, please create it.
Suprised this does not already exist, very much needed.
Bala Vishal commented
This is very much needed, this make like so simple, any ETA on this roll out ?
Farouk Achoui commented
Can we have this as soon as possible please. Thank you.
Andrew Erickson commented
Is there a status update or ETA on roll out?
Andrew Erickson commented
This should definitely be a standard HS feature.
This would be super helpful, it comes up everytime with our clients (we are an agency)... is there a plan to integrate this?
Kim Chen commented
we could definitely use this feature on our forms!
Yes, this is definitely needed. Would really like a progressive form which allows the user to share their initial data with us (name, email) with the option of entering more such as address and request for a brochure or sales call.
Erik Jung commented
This is not a feature, this is a BUG! Without this, the salesforce integration does NOT WORK. Salesforce uses dynamic picklists for country/state/city choices, to make sure no one misspells these fields. As long as hubspot doesnt fix this, the integration will be bugged.

How come Gravity Forms can do it? Guys, this idea was published in 2011 year, more 700 votes and still "IN DESIGN"...
Just take "conditional logic" mechanism from somewhere (the same Gravity Forms for example: http://www.gravityforms.com/features/conditional-logic/ ) and add them. Please!
You have really cool solutions and service, but this is one of the things, which are vital for online marketing. Nurturing emails, lists, workflows, CTAs, etc. are good, but we need to be able to "auto-talk" with clients instantly, by reacting on their actions/answers in our forms. There should be ability to:
- show or hide fields in the form based on a previous user selection;
- create multi-page forms and to show or hide additional page of form fields (for example it can be some "next" button, instead of submit button if form is multi-page or just appearing of a section on the same page instead of appearing just field);
- change action on the submit button of a form (don't allow to submit until all the needed fields are picked with the needed values, change redirection to Thank-You page depending on the choices in the form);
- change notifications depending on user's choices.
So, the forms should be dynamic :) Hope they will be. Thanks in advance!

Looks like this has been in design for almost 2 years now.

At the top of my list as well.
We're highly interested in this as well. Because it's not an option, we're getting 'messy data' brought into SalesForce. Ex: someone who is not in the US is filling in the State field and therefore creating 'unusable data' in SalesForce. Thank you for any updates on the beta or actual version of this.

This has been "in design" forever. Any news? Feels like someone gave up on its development.
