    Can I duplicate sections of a form?

    Asked by GFPat on June 11, 2011 at 12:33 PM

    I use forms for genealogy purposes. The exact same questions pertain to each child of a family. Can I duplicate the child section without simply duplicating each question individually?

    Hi GFPat

    Thanks for asking. Unfortunately, this is not currently possible with JotForm but if it's any consolation, you are not the only one who wants this. As a matter of fact, I believe there are more than a few threads on this. A request was already submitted for this functionality to be added to our forms and perhaps it's just a matter of time before it becomes a reality.

    Please monitor our blog for updates on this and other features.

    If there's anything else you need to find out about related to our forms, please feel free to ask. Our team will be glad to assist you where we can.

    We are sorry, but that feature request is still in our roadmap. It is not something that is very important for most of JotForm users, that is why mentioned feature request might take even more time to get implemented.

    Please note that our Developers are extremely busy, and we are not going to stop improving our services.

    We hope for your understanding in this matter.

    I bet they are busy and thank you guys for your awesome work.  I hope something like this gets implemented soon.  There are a lot of requests for it and it makes sense why.  I have very lengthy forms and to have to duplicate each field and then redo all the conditions when there are many sections like this...it's too much and it's a very important option to have for businesses especially where time is money.

    Thanks!
