We are in the hospitality & event sector and often create dinner events in which people book tables for up to 10 x guests. Essentially we are trying to create a multiple menu choices document. This will be a form for one leading guest (table host) to make menu choices from a set menu on behalf of up to 10 guests.
I would like to create a field in which the name of each one of those guests is inserted into a field and that name then imprints/repeats on each of the three menu tables: Starters, Main Course & Dessert. Please can you advice me how to do this?Once we have got our menu published & in use I then need to be able to transfer & collate the completed forms into an Excel file - is this possible? I would like to really get this right, if it works we will use it multiple times for all future event bookings.
I hope to hear from you soon,

Hello Jane, from how you described it, a widget will fit your needs when it comes to allowing users to enter multiple entries. You have a couple of options to choose from so I'll just list them all:

If I were in your shoes, I'd use the Configurable List Widget as my choice since it's flexible enough to handle a variety of form fields. We even have a dedicated guide on how to set it up.

Give that a spin and let us know if you'd need more help.
Your other question about exporting to Excel has been moved to a separate thread https://www.jotform.com/answers/1151258
We'll have it addressed there shortly.
