For instance, the "form_identify_hazards" is the form template field code and "High Voltage" is one of the answers.

With the MergeField selected, Press Ctrl + F9 to initiate IF field statement

Note: After pressing Ctrl+F9 it will insert a special open and close curly brackets (normal curly brackets will NOT work) then you can start using the IF conditional statement. If you are on Mac, simply press Command + Fn + F9 or Command + F9 to enable the IF statement feature.

The IF field compares two values and then inserts the text appropriate to the result of the comparison. When using a multi-choice multi answer field, ServiceM8 returns a value of 'Yes' when that corresponding answer is selected. So the IF statement in this case simple is saying, if the field = yes then put a tick.

Enter the IF statement syntax properly as shown below
