Form or table help

    Asked on February 19, 2021 at 05:12 PM

    I want to create a form or table to help me create a printable list of parts that are damaged on a car after it has been in a collision. If I check a major area (ie front bumper), I want it to open to a sub-list of the parts in the bumper. Here's a small sample: (I will populate the sub-lists, but only want to print ones that are checked) I also need the ability to repair, replace, R&I, and a few other things, but I'm trying to make it as simple to understand as I can.

    Front bumper (upper bumper, lower bumper, retainers, clips, molding)

    Headlight (headlight assembly, bulb, bolt, bezel)

    Fender (Fender .fender liner, fender liner retainer, emblem)

    Front door (door shell, door skin, mirror, door panel)

    Rear door (door shell, door skin, mirror, door panel)

    I have created a demo to get you started.

    You can clone my form and expend on it.

    The idea is:

    • to hide all the sub-menus first:


    • Apply conditional-logic to show the corresponding sub-menu only if the relevant item in the main-menu is selected

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    That helps a little, but how do I make a sub option to repair,replace,r&I,
    refinish , left, right etc? For example. Are front bumper. Need to be able
    to check replace and left or right or both. Hope this makes sense.
    Basically I'm trying to generate a checklist and print out car parts that
    need repair, replacing, refinishing, etc

    You would need to add fields with those options as well to the form and show/ hide them with the conditional logic, based on the selected answer.

    Or you can also use an Input Table field with Multi Type Columns and add all possible options.
