About Andy Michaels

Andy Michaels started off a process guy, working for Accenture for nearly a decade designing systems for Fortune 500 companies. Tech was always a hobby though, and he taught himself to code "for fun." Life threw him a curve in 2001, and after beating cancer he lost his taste for the suit-wearing, cubicle world and decided to slow things down a bit. Now he works from home, so don’t be surprised if you hear a dog (or three) barking in the background while you’re on the phone with him.

Use Javascript to Apply Conditional Tags

We had a client recently that wanted to apply tags based on the results to a short survey.  They were classifying prospects by asking a series of short multiple choice questions.
