Enable multiple layers of dependent fields logic on forms

As a small company, we work to create scalable forms that can be used internationally to minimize additional developer work and to globalize our automations. One huge flaw in HubSpot's lead capture forms is the lack of multiple layers of dependent logic. For example, you can currently have multiple fields dependent on one field, such as country. But you cannot have a subsequent field dependent upon a country-specific one. E.g.:


If Country = Japan show:
Are you working with a distributor? (Radio select yes/no)
If radio = yes
Select your distributor company from the dropdown menu:

This seems like pretty basic functionality that would go a long way to creating scalable processes with minimal data collection fragmentation. I was pretty disappointed as a HubSpot power user to see this limitation, as administering hundreds of region-specific forms across microsites is not realistic.

We need this functionality as well for our order forms.

We could really use this as well. A dependent field within a dependent field.

Need this feature as well. Mostly for a mutli-layer dropdown selection but all field types would be nice.

 

For example:

 

Churn reason (dropdown selection)

- Missing feature

- Competitor-driven

- Loss of key user

 

If you select competitor-driven, then require next field:

 

Competitor (dropdown selection)

- Option 1

- Option 2

- Option 3

Absolutely could use this. I've ran into this limitation multiple times. 

 

Thanks!

Could you please create the options for the dependent field after another dependent field? We need to have a better form otherwise we are not able to filter what we are looking for

We are keen to see this functionality as well.

Does anyone have a workaround?

Hi, wanting this to get floated to the top, is there a solution yet? **bleep** that I can't have a field for who referred you as well as 'other - please specify' under 'how did you hear about us'

Would also be nice to be able to have multiple dependent fields based on a selection.

Hey everyone here, if you haven't already please upvote this same idea on this other thread (looks like that one is getting more visibility and this might get addressed soon)
