    Hi,

    Sorry but I am not able to understand what advanced feature you are referring to. Would you please clarify it a bit?

    Most advanced features are found on the preferences tab when you click setup & embed, FYI.

    Here's a guide about autofill by the way in case this is what you mean here: How to Enable Auto Fill Feature | Save Form Entries to Continue Later

    Thank you!

    To make advanced forms is possible by searching User Guide and Forum, but it can be complicated. Below are some of my favorites*. Instead of coping bits of code or going into the code to figure it out, provide a user interface/app that would help to make advanced forms easier.

    See what other advanced forms users would like to do, as seen in the forum, or ask the users to vote. Then make advanced user interface to help with the possibilities.

     

     

    The ability to make changes in the code makes Jotform powerful. Thank you

    Thanks for contacting us.

    All those guides are workarounds that have been implemented as alternative solutions, because our dev team has not implemented those feautures to our form builder as many of them are complicated to be implemented or are not feasable. However, I encourage you to open separated threads and make the requests for each of the features so that we can forward your request to our dev team and let them reconsider the implementation of the those features that would allow to create advanced forms easier.

    Thanks
