    Do you have a table option where you can mix and match input types (i.e. one column is a Dropdown selection and the others are data input fields)? See example below:

    UPDATE (June 11, 2019): The input table field has a new type called Multi-Type Columns. You will now be able to set different type for each column such as Single Choice, Checkbox, Textbox, and Dropdown.

     
     
    There are many features when you use the Multi-Type Columns:

    1. You can change the row and column names.
     
     
    Additionally, you can set the row and column names by clicking on the gear icon.
     
     
    2. You can add rows and any type of columns by clicking on the add row and add column.
     
    3. You can set options for dropdown type by clicking on the downwards arrow.
     
     
    Enter your dropdown options.Click on the Save Changes.
     
     
    4. You can delete the rows by clicking on the cross (X) that exists for each row and you can delete the rows by clicking on the downwards arrow that exists for each column.
     
     
    5. You can change the types of each column to Single Choice, Checkbox, Textbox, and Dropdown by clicking on the downwards arrow that exists for each column.

    Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to have mixed input types using the Matrix/Input table field.

    You will have to use multiple Matrix table field instead that have different input type, and then just position them side by side to make them appear like Matrix table with different input type.
