Conditional Visibility based on reference item.

I need to set conditional visibility based on whether or not a field is set in a collection that is referenced in the CMS.

    July 24, 2018: Good news! Now you can toggle the visibility of CMS elements based on fields of referenced items. Read all about it.

    This would be a very useful extension of the Conditional Visibility feature. It's a little cumbersome to have to use a dynamic list to get this functionality.

    +1 on this. Due to the limitation of 30 fields per collection, i'm forced to combine collection items using a "single reference field". 

    I run into problems when trying to control what images are displayed based on whether they are "set" or not. 

    See for an example of images being displayed when they are not set :(

    Yes, I need to be able to show / not show an element if a single reference field is set / not set. i.e. if the single reference field is empty, do not show that item.

    Yeah, I need to be able to show or hide an element based on the name of a referenced collection (i.e. - "Only show this element if the referenced Course collection is name 'Course 1'" for something like an opt-in form that's tied to a specific course).

    This would be super useful. I want to show my blog authors' social media icons at the end of each post based on whether or not they have a link in their referenced bio to a given social media site.

    With the limited fields we have, this is really needed.

    Throwing my vote to this—seems like something that wouldn't be a huge amount of effort!

    Why isn't this already included? It's really important.

    I gave three votes to this. I'm creating a website for a greenhouse and in the plant database, I need the ability to show a "Related Plants" heading if there are, in fact, related plants existing in the reference item field. Pleeeease develop this. Someone on the forums said this was in the works back in 2016.

    Definitely need this. I have a "Project" page, and a "Related Projects" section with a headline in it, and rather than have an "Empty" state for the field referencing the project I'd love to be able to just hide the whole section.
