    Repeating the same block of fields for several optional entries

    Asked by aviruch on December 06, 2014 at 01:02 PM

    Dear Sir/Madam,

     

    We have two following needs - 

    1. We have created a form for a student competition where user will feed some details about himself. Then user need to enter number of team members (Maximum limit on team member is 10) in his group.

    Based on user input for team member, we want to repeat a block to enter details about each member.

    Request you to kindly let us know if it is possible.

     

    2. When user fill the form, we can show a unique number from "Random number generator". 

    When user fill some other form we want user to fill this unique number and email id, and we want to cross check if number and email is matching with our record that user filled earlier, then only user upload his competition file.

    Thank you in advance.

    Regards

    Aviruch Bhatia

    Hi Aviruch,

    Since we can only answer to one question per thread I have moved your second question to a new thread here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/470724

    We will be replying to it shortly.

    Now in regards to your first question, yes it is possible.

    Now if you can tell us what kind of info you are looking to repeat there are several options available.

    You could:

    1. create all the fields (since there is a maximum number of 10) and use conditions to show them

    useful guides:

    Smart Forms Using Conditional Logic

    Hide or Show Multiple Fields at Once

    Show or Hide multiple fields at once using form collapse tool

    2. add a Configurable List widget (or some other similar one - depending on the fields)

    Useful guides:

    How to Set Up the Configurable List Widget

    Do let us know if you have any further questions.

    Best Regards,
    Ben

    In this scenario,  is there a way to generate a form submission based on the number of items are repeated.  I want a new form submission with all the parent\surrounding data duplicated.

     

    So if someone added 4 players at one registration I want 4 records on my spreadsheet with each one containing the parent info.

    Thanks,

    Mike
