Is it possible to make a list that tailors the information entered based on the choices made within the list?

For example:

Only show field2 for the user to enter information if field1 has "Yes" selected.


Only show field4 for the user to enter a date if field3 has "Choice 2" checkmarked.

I've looked all over, but can't find anything of the sort. Perhaps I'm not using a key phrase or term that will direct me to the right answer.

I currently don't have access to Sharepoint Designer, and only the web layout to create and add apps. But I may be able to get access to Designer if that helps.


Yes you can show and hide theses fields on demand based on your choice field selected value via Jquery without using SharePoint Designer by doing the following :

  • Open your new form via the browser.
  • Edit Page .

enter image description here

  • Add web Part > Add Script Editor .

enter image description here

Add the following code.

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.12.4/jquery.min.js"></script>

//Show/hide columns based on Choice Field Selection
$("select[title='Field1']").change(function() {
if ($("select[title='Field1']").val() != "Yes")


Now when you do not select Yes from Field1 that is Choice field it should hide Field2 and if select Yes it should show Field2
