    How can I edit multiple fields quickly?

    Asked by Kiltox on August 14, 2014 at 12:44 PM

    Hello,

     

    I am tryingto create a form which lists various rooms, with about a dozen fields for each room. There may be several dozen rooms. I have worked out how to duplicate fields en-mass (Settings > Edit Multiple Fields) but if I wanted to them edit all of these duplicates to add in a new options, woud l I have to do this manually for each field or is there a quicker way?

    Hi,

    Yes, you would have to update each field manually.  Unfortunately there is not currently a way to add a specific option to multiple fields at the same time.  For example if you have a bunch of fields all named test1 and you wanted to duplicate them all and then rename each to test2, you would need to manually do so.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions and we will be happy to help.

    Thank you for using JotForm!
