    I'm using JotForm for event registration, is there an option where a one person can register a group of people for the event without starting from scrath for each person?

    You may add multiple fields then conditionally show a bunch of them depending on your user's choice. For example, if I'm in your shoes, I will setup the form as follows:

    1. Build it the usual way where all the fields needed are added.

    2. I'll add a Single Choice Field (Radio Button) that asks the user - Would you like to add another person?

    3. If he answers YES, then I'll conditionally show a group of fields that need to be filled out for that added person.

    Now, the setup above works well if you know beforehand how many people a user may add (e.g. 3, 4, or 10 max). However, if you will be allowing UNLIMITED entries for the registration, then you may need to use a widget that offers unlimited and multiple entries too.

    There are a few options so I'll just list them all and let you decide what works best for your needs.

    1. Configurable List Widget

    2. Infinite List Widget

    3. Field Multiplie Widget

    4. Add Options Widget
