    We use JotForm to track our activities.  Is there a way to duplicate a form entry (for multiple dates) instead of using the configurable list widget to add multiple dates?

    We also have multiple customers served on these same dates.

    The configurable list widget is great for end users - not so much for those of us cleaning and analyzing the data.

    Thanks.

    You could create multiple sets of the same fields and then conditionally show those set of fields.  This can be done most easily using a form collapse to separate the sections:

    You can highlight multiple fields by hold the control key and clicking on them.  This allows for copying multiple fields at once making copying full sections of fields much easier.
