    I need to create a form to collect "users" and information and the cross-associate users.

    Asked by adustman on January 14, 2014 at 11:54 AM

    Then it gets complicated!

    Here is an example using a similar principle If I were using this form:

    I create a list of Users

    I designate some of those users as Supervisors

    I now associate the non-supervisor users to work under any/all/any combination of supervisors


    How would I do this?

    I'm not sure if I understand the requirements. Can you explain more? Any example page to see that function?

    Bob wants to keep track of all employees and what supervisors they MAY work under at all of his locations

    (employees may work under multiple supervisors, ie may travel between locations)


    Bob creates a web form on jotform that lets each manager of each location:

    1. Enter in a list of all employees, designating some of them as supervisors

    2. Requires that all non-supervisors MUST be "assigned" to at least one supervisor (multiples are allowed)

    You can achieved this much easier using the form's source code embed as it will allows you to create dynamic condition on the list using a separate javascript code. BUT using the form's source code embed will require you to embed it on your own website.

    Is this available on your end? We can provide you assistance on it.

    The most I could come up using the form builder only is something like this.


    In my sample form, the Manager will tick on the checkboxes that are "Supervisors" and in the dynamic widget "Non-Supervisors", the names of non-supervisor employees can will be added and the next line textbox will be assumed as the assigned supervisor. Multiple supervisor name can be added below the non-supervisor name

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.
