    Is it possible to have an option to add duplicate text fields while a form is being filled out?

    Asked by ainsley2014 on November 05, 2014 at 04:17 PM


    I am currently in the process of creating a form for my site. This form is a shopping form which will allow a client to select an item then describe the item details for purchase knowledge. What I need help in is to create an option within the form where the customer can click and a duplicate the fields just observed. This way when the customer fills out the jotform they can either just fill out the necessary fields once or as many times as they need which makes the additional option essential. I'm thinking if theres a button or would this be a development situation. I am attaching the jotform I've already created but like I said I would like to get some help with this issue. Therefore the future form would only only have one set of text fields with the option to add more. Thank you again for your services and I hope to hear from you soon.

    Yes. It is possible to add multiple text boxes while the form is being filled by using one of our widgets.

    The configurable list may be the right choice for you.
