    Duplicated fields in Form Collapse

    Asked by u3abenalla on December 20, 2012 at 08:08 PM

    Form viewable at: http://www.jotform.com/?formID=23527761117857

    Membership allows for Single or Couple and Newsletter Emailed or Newsletter Posted.

    If emailed the Email Address field is compulsory otherwise it is not compulsory.

    If Single Membership there is One Applicant, One Gender, one Mobile, One Volunteer etc otherwise there will be two.

    To get, say, the Applicant fields the original Applicant field was duplicated and inserted into each of the Collapse areas.

    The Problem:

    Each of the duplicated fields result in multiple columns in the data.

    I think you could setup more than one email notification and establish conditional logics for that.

    This way, you could include in the email body of each email alert just the fields involved according to the selected option


    Please check this guide for further details

    Something else:

    You won't need form collapse to accomplish the desired results



    Here you have an example of a customized email alert
