    Regarding this answer:

    https://www.jotform.com/answers/853239-How-to-have-a-repeating-section-widget-in-the-form

    What CognitoForms offers is a WYSIWYG interface to creating a section that looks like any other part of the form rather than a line of fields. I know these can be altered with CSS but that requires a measure of technical expertise.

    CF also allows for nested repeating sections. So I can create a form where a user can enter multiple products, say, and under each product can enter multiple add-ons.

    Is this possible in JotForm?

    This is the feature:

    Here is a test form I created.

    https://www.cognitoforms.com/PIPSC1/electionsetup

    Enter a title and the Positions section will expand below. Within that section is a Candidates section. The form allows any number of Positions and Candidates sections with a button click. Setting up this form requires the creation of only one Positions section and one Candidates section.
