Want to have name fields appear under registration options

    Asked on May 26, 2017 at 12:45 PM

    Here is the link to my form: https://form.jotform.us/71025019500138 

    I am wanting to have name fields appear under each registration type if the attendee is attempting to register more than one person. I have tried using the conditions but haven't had any luck. I also would like to add an option to buy a table at one of the events and have name fields appear for each person sitting at the table. 

    Hope this makes sense. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    That is certainly doable but I have a question, where exactly would you like those fields to appear, is it under registration field:

    If that's the case and if you need to show those fields based on which product is selected, then it is doable again, but it will require creating products by using regular radio buttons:

    Then conditions can be created based on which product is selected and show appropriately.

    Now I didn't understand how the additional guest field should appear, is it by selecting this field:

    If you can give us more information about this workflow we can certainly assist you further.

    We will wait for your prompt response.

    Thank you!

    Would like for the name field to appear under registration, under each event. The goal is to be able to collect the names of guests if someone is registering for multiple people. I would like for the number of name fields to equate to the number of registrations, i.e. if someone is registering for 2 Early Bird Specials 1 name field would appear for the additional guest, and if 3 then 2 name fields. 
    Hope this provides some clarity.

    Thank you for additional information. If I understood you right, you would like to show additional name fields if qty is increased. If that's the case, then you could create your products with regular radio buttons and drop-down fields (for quantity):

    Then we add several name fields that will show when appropriate qyt is selected, and we can achieve that by using conditions:

    So I set that when radio button is selected and qty set to one, to show one name field, I just repeated the same logic for 2,3 or more:

    Here is my test form with just that selection https://form.jotformpro.com/71515373824962 so you can see what I meant.

    Later that field can be calculated and forwarded to the Payment processor, by using Form calculations field:

    It can be adjusted to multiple with qty field as well.

    Please let us know if it could work for you.

    Thank you!

    I'm really struggling. Would you be able to make the corrections? Also, will this effect the registrations that are already done?

    This is what I would like to do but I can't get the QTY dropdown to appear next to the Single Choice. How do I do that?

    We do not usually make changes like these to forms for users.  If you would like a copy of my colleagues form that he set up though, you can clone it to your account:

    Thank you for this. However, I am still having problems getting the calculations to total and sync to the company PayPal. How do I do that? Link to the form is included.


    Would appreciate your prompt response as the deadline is near.

    I presume you are referring on how to calculate the total based on the radio buttons and quantity field? Or just the direct price? Please note that you are using individual radio buttons on each product, this means that if a user selects a radio button, he/she can NOT deselect it.

    If you want your user to deselect the options at their own will and you want the products to be separate fields, then I suggest changing them to a check box field instead. 


    With regards to the calculation, your calculation is incorrectly setup, you are missing the math operator "+" so the radio button fields are not adding up. You need to add "+" in between just like in math calculations (except for the "=" sign). Below is how you should set the calculation widget. 


    I suggest checking the following guides to learn more about calculations and assigning values:

    Assign calculation values to fields: https://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value 

    Perform calculation using the Form Calculation widget: https://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-Perform-Form-Calculation-Using-a-Widget 

    Perform calculation using the Conditional logic: https://www.jotform.com/help/268-Conditional-Logic-Inserts-Text-Calculation-Into-A-Field 


    Now to pass the calculation to your payment integration's total field, you can follow this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-Pass-a-Calculation-to-a-Payment-Field.

    I hope that helps.
