    I need to import data containing a list of performers and display it in a grid.  People using the form should be able to search for a particular performer and click a checkbox field to signify that the performer has registered with our music festival.  I want to only allow the new checkbox field to be edited by checking or unchecking it in the grid.

     

    Can I build such an app using JotForm?   If so, then I would appreciate your advice on how to go about it.

     

    Regards

    John

    I'm afraid that we don't have a field that will do all that you need.

    The closest we have to data grid is Data Grid and Multiselect Grid widgets:

    Also what could be interesting for you, but for your users to add new entries, is Configurable list widget: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/configurable_list, here is more about that: https://www.jotform.com/help/282-How-to-Set-Up-the-Configurable-List-Widget

    If those options are not working for you please let us know so we can review some other possibilities if possible. Also, give us more examples of the workflow so we have a better understanding.

    Thank you!
