    How can I create a table with open text box fields?

    Asked by dclaus on September 24, 2014 at 02:42 PM

    I would like to create a table with several products vs a few years of sales. Then I would like my customers to fill in the matrix with forecasted sales. How do I create this?

    I found the matrix option, however when I pull that into my form, it only has buttons to click and not open text fields.

    Thank you for your help!

    It is possible to switch an 'Input Type' of the Matrix field into a Text Box mode.

    Alternatively, you might consider using some widget field(s).

    For example:

    Matrix Dynamique

    Spreadsheet

    Infinite List

    Configurable list
