    Is there a way to create a table with text fields for users to fill out in a form

    Asked by campbuc on May 16, 2014 at 11:52 PM

    I am new to your system and trying to adapt a printed form to an online form. There are many instances where there is a table that the person fills out. Example for medical allergies there are 2 columns: one for the allergy and the other for the reacton and treatment of it. It seems like such a simple thing, but I can't find a solution for this problem, so I thought I would run this by you in case you knew of a solution.

    thanks for your time,

    Beth H.

    Hi Beth H,

    You are welcome to jotform.Based on my understanding,you need a table in a form that a person can fill out like as the medical allergies.Well,for that I would like to suggest you to use Matrix under survey tools.See the following instructions-

    1. Open your Form and click on Survey tools > Matrix then Drag the matrix to your Form.


    2. You can change the number of columns and rows by Columns and Rows icon.


    If you further assistance  in this query,please inform us.

    Thanks !
