    I'm sorry, but I don't fully understand your question.
    Could you please clarify it a bit more?

    I see that you created this form: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/43314804300946 in your account, but the form is blank.

    If you're looking for tools that can help you to define sections in your form, Then you can use page breaks or form collapses to do this.

    Let us know if this is what you're looking for or not.
    Thank you.

    Hi Raul,
    Basically our client would like to have a Pre-selection to toggle for either "student" or "parent/guardian".
    Some of the required field is share the question, if we use form collapses, we worry that will lot of duplicated column in the data.
    You can refer created form http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43314804300946 for your reference.
    Besides that, we also some issue not sure how can be done in jotform

    Hello greeni,

    1. Second Level Answer, for example for user to selected Form 6 / UEC

    If I understand your question correctly, you want to display additional check boxes if some specific check box is selected. Example :  If "Form 6" is selected, you need to display additional check box "Lower / Upper". Is that correct?

    It is not possible to display the additional check boxes with in the question but you can take advantage of our "Condition" feature to show / hide questions based on the answer of another form field. You can also inject custom css code in your form to position form field in any place of your choice. Please take a look at the following demo form I have created for you:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43334384963966? 

    Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:  https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL 

    The output of the above form is displayed in the screenshot below:

    It seems you have already figured it out on how to show an additional "Other" box where user can add there own option. I did check your form and you have already enabled it. I will explain it again through the screenshot below:

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
