In some situations, you want to extend or alter your template based on a condition not related to any field used in your template. You can do this using Standalone Conditions.
A standalone condition is similar to a multiple-choice field in the Journey - it allows you to ask the user a question, and the user can select from a predetermined list of options you create.
In many cases, you will already have a field relating to the condition that will insert your text block. For example, the Full Name field on the Spouse card can be used to trigger the insertion of text only applicable if the client is married. However, in other situations your document may not require additional information related to the condition. For example, your document may not require any information other than whether the petitioner is pregnant; in this scenario, you would not have -- or need -- any fields, but you would need to ask the user if the petitioner is pregnant. You can do this using a standalone condition.
Oftentimes you will be able to add conditions either as a standalone condition or triggered off an existing field. When you are planning and designing your template, you'll want to think about the different options, and which one makes the most sense for your situation (and offers the user the best experience or Journey). In this example, we use a standalone condition (to illustrate the concept), but as noted in the video this same condition could be created triggering off of an existing field (such as the Street Address field on the Defendant card). In this example, since the user entered an address for the Defendant, you probably don't need to also ask the user if the Defendant's address is known.
