Thanks for the question, but unfortunately this is not what the conditional logic is intended for.
Each time you update the repeater, all the data is re-written to the DB. This is why the hidden field’s loose their data.
Perhaps you could change your data layout to use a custom field for each user (instead of a repeater field)? This would give you better querying functionality and remove the issue of scrolling to the bottom each time.
