    How can I create repeatable sections/multiple fields? Currently with Formstack, I can create and save named sections with fields in them. I then can place these sections within any of my forms as many times as needed. For example, on a form that collects new phone user details, after the submitter selects how many phone users them need to add, they are presented with only that many user sections. Each of these sections contain the same fields, but uniquely named so that the data can be integrated with a Google Sheet.

    This keeps data from getting mixed up and eliminates the need to re-create sections and fields manually every time.

    Of course, with the vast selection of widgets on JotForm, I may be able to accomplish this kind of entry in a better, more aesthetic way like some kind of table or grid. I just really need a way to get things like multiple user details in an easy to use format for the form submitter, and without the form creation process being long and tedious.
