    Is there a way to add other form fields to the full address field or even better create other full form fields?

    Do you mean that you want to combine some fields into one section similar to the field cluster used in the Address Field.

    Something like this might be a possibility and we can try. It would most likely use some Injected CSS to try to reposition fields. But it will take some time and could be a bit tricky.

    May I ask what your envision of this is? Or what you had in mind of trying to combine and replace?

    Thank you for your prompt response! I'm looking for the ability to combine various types of form fields in the manner that you have your full address field. I will use this to develop forms that would make it easier to input data in my profession (i.e. private investigation, process service, etc.). At the moment I am focusing on the following type of set up below, which may need to be modified:

    Name field
    full address field
    drop-down box field
    date and time field
    location field

    any assistance in this area would be greatly appreciated.

    The order of the fields are correct. But I want all of them to be grouped together in one module like that of your full address fields. I would also like the "your name" field to be one single field rather than have it broken down into first and last name. If you are able to group them I would finally want the ability to substitute the fields should I need to make modifications to a form design.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, we can only do something similar to how the Address field looks like (as my collegue's demo) but as for the grouping them together on submission is not possible. I will try to forward this request to our developers and hopefully, our developers can integrate this in the future.

    Thank you.
