    Can I create Multiple Drop Downs or Text boxes under one Heading?

    Asked by nsmith54321 on September 27, 2013 at 08:07 AM

    I am builiding a grocery shopping list for my site.  I have built a format that I like using JotForm, but it has some limitations that I hope you can help me with.  Please see that attached screenshot below and my web address to the list page.

    Solution Needed:  My first field in the column is a generic grocery item, I have a drop down so I can load multiple items narrowing down that generic item (ex. Cheese, Shredded then dropdowns of Mozzarella, Cheddar Mild, Cheddar Sharp, Monterey Jack, etc.)    That works perfectly if they want to buy 2 bags of Mozzarella, BUT if they want to buy 1 bag of Mozzarella & 1 bag of Sharp Cheddar it can't be done.  Can multiple drop down windows be assigned under one heading to save space?  That would be incredible.  That way if there were six selections, I could just pop in 3 or 4 drop downs under the heading and it would take up less space than the alternative of adding 3 or 4 more lines, possibly confusing the customer. 

    I hope you can help.

    I believe I've figured out a solution.  Using the Matrix boxes.  If there are other suggestions, I would love to hear them.

    I think Matrix boxes will be the workaround that best suits your needs, anyways I will try to figure out an other workaround.
