    This is something we have heard before for sure. No time frame on this one at all but I'll be watching the votes in here!  Thanks for posting.

    This one actually tripped me up when I was building an app to apply for my job here at GoCanvas. Upvoted :)

    I needed this today while updating an app to hide a field that is worthless most of the time except for one specific customer we do business with

    In addition to "Contains", "Starts with" would be extremely useful too!

    In addition to "Contains", "Starts with" would be extremely useful with the option of Wildcards.

    Contains ***ABC******

    or 

    Starts with  222***

    This is currently the highest voted feature request on this site. I guess the votes don't mean much.

    Hi Chris,

    We do review and report on the number of votes feature requests are getting. The interest here is weighed against a lot of things, among them our overall product strategy, the level of effort required, user data, and insight from our user research (some quantitative, some qualitative).

    Things from the Community do get implemented (a couple of examples: https://help.gocanvas.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360000175687-Hidden-or-read-only-GPS-field, https://help.gocanvas.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360000215048-Make-reference-data-available-as-a-dropdown-when-creating-a-dispatch). A few are in progress or on the roadmap (some examples: https://help.gocanvas.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360000174847-Page-numbering-in-PDF-Designer, https://help.gocanvas.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360000467367-Web-Version-of-Apps, https://help.gocanvas.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360000466907-The-ability-to-make-your-own-dashboard). 

    As far as this particular topic goes, I promise to keep advocating for it every chance I get. Thanks, as always, for your feedback.

    I needed this yet again today and had to compromise on the functionality that was needed again...

    I thought I would check here to see the current status of this request...  it would still be a useful feature

    Hi there!

    GoCanvas is really impressive and I can see a lot of effort being put into building this platform. Now I'm looking for an alternative to switch from JotForm, which UX and UI needs a lot of improvements.

    Today I found GoCanvas and it's on top 3 of my list now. However, after 30 minutes of testing I can tell there are some fundamental features missing here - one example is Field Condition.

    My question is “How is that possible that you've created such an amazing app but cannot implement such a trivial feature users are asking you for 2 years?” I need CONTAINS option too. In my company we use Service Requests number to identify its type. I have to use CONTAINS condition to decide which fields should be shown and which should be hidden. Otherwise, I will have to either build multiple forms (this I can accept) and modify them as time goes by (this I cannot accept) or choose another way to get it solved with GoCanvas - for instance let user decide by choosing an option from drop-down. Second option means no-automation and leaves plenty of room for mistakes.

    Another example is Field mask - why did you implement it so poorly? There is one fundamental thing missing too - this option should also allow placing specific character (alphanumerical or non-alphanumerical). Please have a look how Google implemented regular expressions in Google Forms - it gives users virtually endless possibilities - so please follow Google :-)

    Your app looks really great, but you should also react better to what your users are saying. There's no better way of user satisfacion improvement. Statements like that provided by Sara Kaplow don't bring you closer to your users to be honest.

    Fingers crossed!
