    Hi, I'm wondering if there is a way for a user to duplicate information while they are filling out a form so they don't have to enter the same information twice.

    For example, if I want them to fill out their Shipping Address and Billing Address... often times they are the same. So is there a way to set it up so that, for example, the user will fill out their Shipping Address, and then if their Billing Address is the same as their Shipping Address, all they have to do is click a checkmark box indicating that, and then the fields for Billing Address automatically fill in to match the Shipping Address?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    We do not have some native option for this, but this is actually possible with embedded form source code and custom javascript. There is a link to the tutorial:

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

    Thanks, but this is a very tedious workaround for each of my forms. Is there any way you can incorporate this into a new JotForm feature?

    It's a workaround that does take some time to configure further and we do understand that.

    I can't make any promises about this but what I can do is honor your request for this ability as a possible Feature. I will add your request to our Features Request List for consideration. Our developers will look it over as soon as they get to your thread for consideration. I won't be able to say if or when for it but should we decide to add this then we'll let you know with a response here.
