    How to create multiple fields to be shown only if required

    Asked by Ray_Johnson on October 27, 2014 at 09:42 PM

    I need to create a form that may require  the same information from 1 or more people. Is it possible to have a field like add another person (yes/no) then the fields will drop down for filling if answer is yes?

    Hello  Ray_Johnson,

    Yes with a little workaround, it is possible to achieve your requirement. There are 2 possible options available:

    1. You can use "Configurable List" widget where users can add rows to input the data any number of time. 

    2. Another option is to duplicate the fields you have in your form and then add conditions to show hide based on answer if users want to add another person. 

    Please take a look at the following cloned form and see if this is what you wanted to achieve:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43000478700949? Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:  http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL 

    Hope this helps.
