    Asked on February 08, 2021 at 11:14 PM

    i need to collect vehicle data from car dealers. the set of information per vehicle i need is required. I also need to be able to accept multiple vehicle enteries. so the dealer will enter data set for 1 car and submit or fill in data for a car, add another car, fill in that data, and so on when done will submit.

    i have attached the screenshot of fields to repopulate

    You want to try out our Configurable List widget which allows you to add multiple repeatable fields.

    Wow, this is exactly what i needed. I have too many fields horizontally, is there a way to make them vertical in pairs as above?

    Hi,

    You can fix it by injecting CSS codes within your form.

    The guide below shows how you can change the widget to appear vertically, for all devices or just for mobile phones.

    Kindly add the CSS below to each of your widgets:

    td.col1 {
    padding-top: 6px !important;
    }
    td {
    width: 48%;
    float: left;
    padding-right: 1% !important;
    }

    Please add the CSS I have provided to the existing CSS you have in your widget. Please do not delete the old one.

    My form looks great

    !


    however, the save button does not save the fields of the repopulating section. just the data above.

    Hello,

    Thanks for contacting us. I'm sorry but upon checking your form I don't see the SAVE button anywhere. See the picture below:

    Can you please explain what do you mean by the save button?

    Thanks,
