    Hello. Thanks for posting your inquiry. We will do our best to help you.

    I have just cloned your form https://www.jotform.com/33174454468157.

    After studying your form construction, Here is what I did:

    First, I added a radio button that asks "Do you want to add more participants?". They will choose Yes or No. I then duplicated this radio button 2 times for Participant 2 and 3 sections.

    If you noticed, I also added numbers to them. It is just for a marker so that I will not be confused when selecting fields while setting conditions. It is hard to choose labels when they are exactly the same content.

    In total, you will have 3 radio buttons that asks the same question for "General Information", Participant 2 and 3 sections.

    I also did the same on the schedule datetime fields. I added markers on their labels.

     

    For your first condition, use the "Show/Hide a form field" and use this:

    Here, you have 1 rule from the start they want to add another participant,

    It will show Participant 2 form section
    It will show the Participant 2 Costume measurement section
    It will show Participant 2 schedule conflict datetime

     

    For your second condition, it will just be the same but different rule and actions.

    If from the Participant 2 section if they still want to add another participant it will show all the section that are related to Participant 3 - General Infos, Costume Measurement, Schedule conflict datetime.

     

    And the last condition, After they fill up Participant 3, when they still want to add more it will show Participant 4 related infos - General info, Costume Measurement, Schedule Conflict datetime.

     

    This will be the final condition sets

     

    As you can see, the markers helped in creating the conditions. You may choose to remove the markers if you wish.

    Here is my demo form http://form.jotformpro.com/form/33185949151965. Feel free to clone this form. Please refer to this thread on How to Clone form from Webpage.

    If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you
