    Multiple Orders

    Asked by guelphlittletheatre on July 23, 2011 at 10:08 AM

    I'm developing a form that has a fair amount of complexity to allow a customer to choose options for a product. I'd like to be able to repeat the process multiple times with different choices. This is to allow selections for one individual or selections for a whole team (2 or more). There are some choices that are common to the team but some that are personalized for each individual. I'm doing a lot of hiding and showing of fields based on selections. The only thing I can find is the matrix but it does not offer enough complexity. Can you help me understand if what I am trying to do can be done with jotform? Perhaps there is a way to repeat sections or call a subform multiple times? Thanks...

    Hi guelphlittletheatre,

    To my knowledge, this may or may not be possible with JotForm. You cannot set up a condition to show/hide a set of fields or a portion of a form since Conditions can be assigned to show/hide one field at a time only.

    However, if you know a bit of HTML, a workaround that might work for you is to use a Free Text (HTML) field type to create that set of fields or portion of the form, and set up a condition that will show/hide this Free Text (HTML) field. The downside is that you will not receive the answers of the fields inside the Free Text (HTML) in the email notifications.  However, it will still show up in the JotForm submissions page.

    If you intend to use Payment Fields, another thing to consider is that you can only set up one payment field for each form. And you cannot set up a condition that will show/hide items within a payment field. 

    In conclusion, the answer actually depends on how flexible you can be with regards to your compliance with your requirements. If it is a must that you need to receive all of the answers in the email notification, then the answer is no - it will not be possible with JotForm. Otherwise, the workaround will work for you and JotForm may still work for you.

    I hope you find this information helpful. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

    Thank you for using JotForm!

    Hiding multiple fields based on a single conditional response can now be made possible by including those fields in a form collapse section.

    Here's a guide that has the information you need:

    Hmm...

    If my form has an autoID field, 

    and i put an iFrame in a FreeText field,

    and i put a DIFFERENT form into the iFrame,

    is there a way to pass the autoID from the parent form into a textbox or hidden control on the iFrame?

    thx!
