    Hi Jotform.

    Anita here, from the Netherlands.

    I have been using Jotform for some time now, and I'm a bit surprised that the
    standard form fields haven't been updated.

    Most people nowadays use cellphones, so why don't we have a cell phone box?
    Here in the Netherlands the address line is street, house number, postcode and then city.

    On jotform this is the wrong way i.e. city comes before postcode.

    Do I need to put just simple short text lines everywhere to circumvent? Or is there a way to create my own fields?


    Thanks in advance!

    For the cell phone box or mobile number, please use the Phone Number field.

    Unfortunately, you cannot change the position of the Postal Code and City under the Address field by default.

    I recommend you use the Multiple Text Fields widget instead.

    Hi Jan, thnx for taking the time to reply.
    Alas, your suggestions won't work.
    The mobile/cell numbers in my country have 06 and then 8 digits as
    their number. The reguar phone number box is set up differently, so it
    will appear weird, also I would like the prefix 06 (or +316) to be in
    place already if possible.
    I may have to design it myself then.
    As for the multiple text field widget, that is so lame looking with all
    differently spaced boxes and no box requirements (text, numeric etc.) in
    place, I cannot even consider it.
    Thanx for your time anyway, I'll see if I can implement my needs in some
    other way.
    Have a great weekend.
