    Hi there

    I refer to the following URL.

     http://form.myjotform.com/form/41112368425549 

    https://gyazo.com/2b3eeaef0669852f3259ee7bd9f53a76

    I cannot understand the ties between the two URLs.

    For example, dynamic field shall be entered and created the blank

    by form owner and then user shall fil the form and send it to form owner after

    the user receives the form from form owner.

    Hopes you understand my question.

    Awaiting for your reply.

    I'm not sure if I understood your question correctly. 

    On the demo form, you provided name field of the Configurable List widget is required. The users will not be able to submit it unless they fill the name filed. 

    On the screenshot, you provided checkbox and text area fields of the Configurable List widget are required. 

    You can combine the different type of fields with the Configurable list widget and you can make some of them required. 

    I saw that the form you provide is from this guide: 

    How to Set Up the Configurable List Widget

    You as the form owner can provide your users the link of your form. The user will then fill your form and submit it. After that, you will receive an email with submitted data to your email address. You will also be able to see the submitted data on the submission page of your form. 

    If I did not understand you correctly, please explain in more details what are you trying to achieve and provide us an ID of the form you are working on.

    Name→ text box

    Position→?

    Date joined→?

    Active→radio button

    Comments→text area

    Membership→text box

    Position - Dropdown field

    Date joined - Date field 

    Regarding the question from your screenshot - What is the meaning of the astar mark? 

    It means that the field is required. The user can not submit the form unless the field is filled. Considering that the Name field of the Configurable list widget is required you can remove the asterisk that is shown next to the field label (New Members ). This can be done inside of the filed settings.

    Yes, 1,2,3,4 sounds correct, you place the fields in the Configurable list as needed.

    5. Form submitter adds new rows (Add members), so not the owner.

    6. Here is how to change the title of the Configurable list and of the add button:

    7. Added asterisks meaning that the field is required.

    Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thank you!
