    I have a form where the top part remains static; they fill that section out once. But the second part of the form would require duplicating the form fields equal to the number of orders the user is ordering.


    An example:  John Doe fills out all of the usual name, contact informatioin, etc. Then he selects the number 3 from a drop down menu that has 1-10 to place an order for 3 widgets. Three sets of form fields appear for him to enter the color, size, and shape for Widget #1, then the color, size, and shape for Widget #2,and then the color, size, and shape for Widget #3. 

    If he had chosen 5 widgets, 5 sets of form fields for color, size, and shape would have appeared. Is that a possibility in JotForm? Thanks.

    You can try Conditions feature to accomplish that. It allows you to hide questions until a particular selection is made. In this case, I think you should just have all those aditional questions but hide them under a "Add New Widget" question. I made an example for you with 2 widgets:

    Here is the conditions I created to accomplish this:

    SHOW Widget #1 Name: field.
    When (First Add New Widget Checkbox) Equals To "Add New Widget"

    SHOW Widget #1 Size field.
    When (First Add New Widget Checkbox) Equals To "Add New Widget" 

    SHOW Widget #1 Color: field.
    When (First Add New Widget Checkbox) Equals To "Add New Widget"

    SHOW Widget #2 Name: field.
    When (Second Add New Widget Checkbox) Equals To "Add New Widget"

    SHOW Widget #2 Size field.
    When (Second Add New Widget Checkbox) Equals To "Add New Widget"

    SHOW Widget #2 Color: field.
    When (Second Add New Widget Checkbox) Equals To "Add New Widget"

    SHOW (Second Add New Widget Checkbox) field.
    When (First Add New Widget Checkbox) Equals To "Add New Widget"

     

     

    Another way to accomplish somethin similar would be the "FormCollapse" tool under the "Survey Tools". You can create multiple hidden sections and let users open them to fill them.
