    Tables and Columns

    Asked by cglass on August 01, 2012 at 12:13 PM

    I have been getting a lot of forms lately that is asking for information that can be seen below: 

     

    Year

     

    Leadership Position

    Activity/Organization/Time Spent

    Supervising Adult (Printed Name)

    Supervising Adult      (E-mail or Phone Number)

    9

     

     

     

     

     

    10

     

     

     

     

     

    11

     

     

     

     

     

    12

     

     

     

     

     

    What is the best way to go about this? It is really time consuming to create a field for each column and grade.

    The only way to achieved that is by using our Matrix field which can be found under Survey Tools.
