    Hello,

    I have created a Jotform which will go onto our website for auction donors to upload their auction item information:

    https://www.jotform.com/build/201488430082855

    Is there a way for one donor to upload multiple entries (if they have more than one item to donate) without having to create a new form for each one?

    Many thanks,

    Cathy Taylor

    You can duplicate the fields, then add a question after each set like "Would you like to donate more?". If they click yes, then show the duplicated fields using a condition.

    Hi Vanessa,

    But I won't know how many auction items donors will want to load up. For example, there might be one company who want to donate 3 items - a clothing voucher, a homewares voucher and a kids toy.  Once they have completed the first part of the form including the 'Auction Item Details' and selected a category from the dropdown box (see my form link below) for the clothing voucher, how can they go back to the 'Auction Item Details' section to submit the information for the homewares voucher without having to fill in the first part of the form all over again (e.g. name, company, email, address etc)?

    Hi, thank you for your response.

    You can make use of the Configurable List widget and add a condition to the widget to show the fields that correspond to the selected category.

    Sample condition:

    Please check if it suits your needs and let us know how it goes. Thank you.

    Great!  The configurable list worked but I have 3 more questions please:

    1. How can someone enter more than one item with the same category e.g. someone is donating two items which are both "memorabilia" - one item is an "Elvis Signed Guitar" and one is a "Rolling Stones Signed Guitar". They are separate items but when I select the category "memorabilia" for both of them only one "memorabilia" form is visible.

    2. How can I make the "Kindly donated by" and "Category" boxes longer (see below).

    3. Can I add hover text to the "+" box?

    1. Can you please share a screenshot of the display you are getting? Basically, if you have added two rows, you will see two rows regardless if all of the details are the same.

    2. Kindly add the CSS below into your form:

    #cid_407 {

      width: 75%;

    }

    iframe#customFieldFrame_407 {

      width: 100% !important;

    }

    Then add the CSS below within your widget:

    How-to-Inject-CSS-Codes-to-Widgets

    .col1 input {

        width: 100%;

    }

    3. Unfortunately, it is not possible to add a hover box, however, if you're planning to show more text, please note that you can change the plus sign into something more readable.
