What's the best way to create a form that duplicates large sections?

    Asked on March 24, 2019 at 10:19 AM

    I am trying to create a form that allows a user to select from a list of 20 (or so) computer programs that they might use.

    For each selection they make, I want to ask the same series of 15 (or so) questions related to each computer program.

    I was trying to make the form 'smart', only showing the group of questions for the selected computer programs. Also, within those groups of questions, there are conditions (e.g. if the user answers 'other', I display a field prompting them for more information.

    I'm having a tough time accomplishing this, trying to copy each field and adjust the field names to reflect the computer program selected, etc. Tedious and I'm making all kinds of logic errors. I know there's an easier way?

    Here's the link to what I have so far:  https://form.jotform.com/90303427778966

    To see the conditional formatting so far, click 'yes' to the question:Do you use any Senior Systems modules or My Backpack in your current position? *  For each module you select (I have Academic History, Accounts Payable, and Accounts Receivable close to accurate), you'll see the form display the related questions.

    It looks like your form has multiple sections, that should be shown conditionally. We have a Section Collapse element, which I can suggest for you to try. It should make the logic much more readable. Please look through this guide: Show-or-Hide-Multiple-Fields-at-Once-Using-the-Section-Collapse-Field

    We will be glad to assist if you need more help, just let us know.
