Capture Information of Multiple UnitsAsked by deepak586625 on November 17, 2014 at 12:55 PM
Our use case:
If the real estate builder has 5 projects.He willl select or enter number 5 and one general schema with radio buton/textboxes for one project will be added five times to the form based on his input.
Could you please give us a bit more details?
For example (but not limited to):
1. is there a limited number of entries that can be added
2. are the radio buttons and checkboxes some segment of the jotform which you would like to repeat or you just need few such fields to be available for each entry?
3. what are all the details that you would acquire about the project?
More details we know, it becomes easier for us to help you and give you the suggestions on what you could use.
1)The number of projects are generally less than 10.
2)For each Project we want number of partments,number of floors,apartment sizes,prices, and other details in textboxes and dropdowns.
3)So if user selcts 10 there should be 10 copies created automatically of all fields defined for a project.
Thank you for giving us the info.
Now there are different ways to approach this, but I think that the best one would be to use our Configurable List as that allows you to have any number of fields added to the jotform.
You will not be able to add as many fields as the number is added, but anyone filling the jotform can just click on a button to add another entry under the others.
You can see here how to set it up: How to Set Up the Configurable List Widget
You could also do this by utilizing conditions, but this would be limited in the maximum number of items that you can have on your jotform as you will need to add each of them manually.
What I would suggest is to try and set it up as much as you would like it to look and then we can take a look at it and help you set the final pieces that give you trouble.
