    Asked on October 24, 2017 at 09:27 PM


    I have setup a table (screenshot included) where I require different drop down options for each column.


    'Round' needs numbers

    'Home/Away' needs Home and Away

    'Opposition' needs a list of clubs

    Can this be achieved in Jotform? If so, please indicate how.

    Many thanks,

    Mikala :)

    Yes, you can do that with Input table field:

    You just set the Input type, of that field, to drop-down.

    Could that work for you?

    Please let us know.

    Thank you!

    Hi Nik_C,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Yes, however can I have different dropdown options for each column or do they have to be all the same.

    Eg.                    Very Satisfied               Satisfied

    Service Quality      YES/NO        CORRECT/INCORRECT

    Please note that input table field can have same option in dropdown field. 

    I would suggest you to please add "Configurable List" widget in form which will allow you to add different dropdown options in each column. Please check the screenshot below:


    Please take a look at the follwoing demo form I created and see if this fits into your requirement:

    Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:

    Thanks so much Ashwin.

    I have attached a screenshot of our table, just want to know if we can change the static text under request priority to 1, 2, 3, 4 etc down the page instead of only having each row as 1.

    Also aswell as the above question, looking at the below image, can I filter my dropdown boxes, for example...

    If I select a specific section, in my below table, only the opposition in that section show as an option rather than all opposition from every section?

    Regarding the numbers in static text, please follow:

    1) Remove number 1 from the configurable list:

    So leave the text, just remove the number 1.

    2) Copy the below CSS code to your Custom CSS of the Widget:

    #list {

    counter-reset: counter -1;


    #list tr:before {

    content: counter(counter);

    counter-increment: counter;

    display: inline-block;

    width: 30px;

    font-size: 18px;

    margin-right: -20px;

    text-align: center;


    #list tr:first-child:before {

    content: "";


    th.col1 {

        width: 70px;

    Here is how it will look like:

    Regarding the second question.

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to do that in the Configurable list widget.

    But it is something that is possibly doable with Dynamics Dropdown widget:


    Could that work for you?

    Thank you!
