    From what I understood you wish that according to the number inserted in a field, to have this number of fields showing.

    You can see the test form:

    The best way is by adding form-collapses and then adding the form fields you wish them to appear. You may set it up as Hidden:

    Using form collapses makes simple adding a condition.

    Lets say you have a first dropdown field like "how many clients". If user says 1 you will have 1 name, 1 email, ...

    If user says 2, you will have 2 name fields, 2 email fields,...

    So if the maximum clients is 10 you will need to create 10 name, email, ...

    Now you need to add a condition that "if the first field is equal to 1, then show (form collapse #1):

    You may clone the form to inspect it closer.

    Let us know if further support is needed.
    Thank you
