If you have a field with choices (Checkbox, Single-choice list, Multiple-choice list, Radio buttons, Checkboxes), you can enable dependencies based on the choice(s). The choice field is called the '''''gating''''' field, and fields that are dependent on it are called '''''dependent''''' fields.

If you have a field with choices (Checkbox (Boolean), Radio buttons, Checkboxes, Single-choice list, Multiple-choice list), you can enable dependencies of other fields based on the choice(s). The choice field is called the '''''master''''' field, and fields that are dependent on it are called '''''dependent''''' fields.

To enable dependencies, do the following in the Library Edit screen:

To make the '''''visibility''''' of a field dependent upon the values of a master field, do the following in the '''Library Edit''' screen:
# Create a gating field with choice values ('''Items''').<br/>Example: Gender, with items '''Male''' and '''Female'''

# Create a master field with choice values (items) (or a Checkbox (Boolean) field).<br/>Example: Gender, with items Male and Female
# Add a dependent field, and select '''''Dependencies of the field'''''; this brings up the '''''Dependencies List card'''''.

# Add a dependent field, and select '''Dependencies of the field'''; this brings up the '''Dependencies list''' card.
# Press the blue plus ('''<big>+</big>''') button to add a dependency; this brings up the '''''Add a dependency''''' card.

# Choose whether the dependency is only when editing an entry (the default) or also when viewing an entry.
# Then choose the value(s) of the gating field (the Items) that will cause the dependent field to be visible (perhaps '''Female''') and press the checkmark in the upper-left corner of the card.

# Then choose the value(s) (the items) of the master field that will cause the dependent field to be visible (say, Female) and press the checkmark in the upper-left corner of the card.

Now, when the corresponding choice(s) is|are selected ('''Female''', perhaps), the previously hidden dependent field(s) become visible.

When you create a content dependency, you set what values of the dependent field will be available for selection, for each possible value of the master field.
