    hi, i would like a three-step form where users:


    1. pick their favorite letters from A-Z, and then

    2. rank their favorite letters from their most favorite to least favorite, and then

    3. for each of their favorite letters, write a short text about why.


    i can do each step independently but can't figure out which widgets to use so that answers from step 1 feed into steps 2 and 3.  is there a way to do this in jotform?


    thank you so much.

    1. pick their favorite letters from A-Z, and then

    You can achieve this using any of the Form elements(dropdown, Multiple choices, textbox)

    2. rank their favorite letters from their most favorite to least favorite, and then

    Here is a widget that you can use to rank the options.

    Please, take a look at this widget: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/orderable_list

    3. for each of their favorite letters, write a short text about why.

    You can use a Long text entry field to write a short text.

    However, using the above there is no way to get the fields populated from one field to the next one.

    A workaround that I can suggest is as follow:

    1. Add an Input table element to enter the first, second and third choice.

    2. next wite condition to populate the selection in the next textboxes, I have enabled the read-only mode and via CSS made it appear like a text.

    3. Added a Long text entry field to write about the selection made.
