    Hello,

    As far as I understand, you would like to enter different name for every row. Configurable List can only duplicate same rows. I would suggest to add sets of fields for every player here:

    Then, you can add some CSS code to align fields on a form. We will gladly help if you face difficulties. 

    The alternative option would be to create multiple Configurable Lists for different players. The easiest would be to duplicate fields and then to change names:

    Thank you!  I was able to duplicate and change the name as described. 

    However, is there an easier way to be able to list a group of 15 names using CSS that will update the names in the configurable list lines? 

    This sheet will be used for several hundred names and it would be difficult to update one by one.

    Please test my form https://www.jotform.com/91107123598962

    Will a similar configuration of the configurable list not work for what you need? 

    Using the Configurable list, you may not need to duplicate the widget just for each Player name...

    I need all of the Player Names and the Group Numbers to be pre-populated.  This is for a player evaluation in somewhat large groups so it would be too difficult to select every player and their number for the large groups.

    In this example, can you update a configurable list with a list a names versus one by one or through a dropdown?

    You cannot prepopulate configurable list values, fields there can only be manually filled.

    I'm sorry, but I'm not sure I understand what would you like to do exactly, if you meant to have names appear with each plus sign, I'm not sure that is possible, so the dropdown might be a better way.
