How do dependent fields and blocks work?
We will explain the functionality in a bottom-up approach with the following diagram:
Consider this example.
- Firstly, the controller (Trigger) field is activated.
- Next, the specified conditions are checked and matched with the Trigger field.
- Lastly, based on the access rules, the Dependent Fields and Blocks are shown.
A customer sells insurance with Product A and Product B. He has 120 custom fields for Product A and 120 custom fields for Product B. The customer’s requirement is straightforward. They don’t want Product B’s fields to be visible while working on Product A and vice-versa.
Here is the solution.
With the help of Dependent Fields and Blocks, we can achieve the above requirement. When the customer selects Product A from a Picklist or Checkbox field, the fields related only to Product A are shown, and when he selects Product B, the fields related only to Product B are shown.
