Are you using Ariba's On-Demand or On-Premise application?
We use on demand, sourcing professional.
You want to use Visibility Conditions. It would basically work like this:
Question 1 which determines which path suppliers will take (you can create this as Owner Required so you will choose the answer) - this should probably be a multiple-choice question. If you answer it (Owner required) the supplier will only see the sections tied to their answer. If the question is Participant Required, once they pick an answer, they'll see a new section pop up.
Section 1 - visibility condition based on Question 1 - Question 1 = Option 1
Questions for suppliers who answer Question 1 as Option 1
Section 2 - visibility condition based on Question 1 - Question 1 = Option 2
Questions for suppliers who answer Question 1 as Option 2
The visibility condition will be on the page when you create the section. If you've already created it, just edit the section.
I hope that helps! Let me know if you need any more help.
Thanks for the instructions. Worked great.
