    Can I add drop down fields along with text fields to a Matrix

    Asked by carnegies on December 11, 2016 at 10:52 AM

    I am trying to add drop down fields with fixed choices along with text fields for random entry to a Matrix.  Can I do this?  

    Also, how do I change the widths of the columns in a Matrix?

    The form I am working on is https://www.jotform.com//?formID=63415833177863#

    Thank you!

    Hello carnegies,

    Please note that you can only have one field type in matrix field. That means you can not have a textbox along with dropdown field. If you just want to add dropdown field in matrix field, it is possible to achieve. Please check the screenshot below:


    If you want to use more than one field type in matrix field, I would suggest you to use "Configurable List" widget and see if that fits into your account.

    I have moved your second question to a new thread and you will be answered here:  https://www.jotform.com/answers/1008657 

    Thank you!
