Can I add an input table to my form where the user can add extra columns if required?

    I would like to be able to give our sales persons a site specific form, so they can provide specific information about numerous pieces of equipment on a single site.

     

    However, the number of equipment's on a site is never the same so I would like to be able to provide an input table with specific questions per row and each column relating to a separate piece of equipment. Therefore, I would require the users to have the ability to add extra columns to the input table when required.

    If that is the case, I suggest that you use the Configurable List widget in your form instead of the regular Input Table field.

    Thanks for your help Mike_G, but I need the layout to be similar to the attached....

    So would configurable-list-widget still be the best way (each new equipment would be a new column)

    The configurable widget would work well if you separate each question, so that it can create its own column.

    Here is my sample screen cast:


    Hope this helps.
